Foytl, Jakub; Chisholm, Fraser; Varsou, Ourania – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2020
The supplementation of lecture-based anatomy teaching with laboratory sessions, involving dissection or anatomical specimens, is commonly used. Hands-on dissection allows students to handle instruments correctly while actively exploring three-dimensional anatomy. However, dissection carries a potential risk of sharps and splash injuries. The aim…

Prendergast, Aisling M.; Shanahan, Rachel; Hickey, Aobha; Harrington, Francis; Schönbauer, David; Byrne, Peter A.; Schnürch, Michael; McGlacken, Gerard P. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
In the past decade, C-H functionalization has been a very active topic of research in both academia and industry. When a H atom is replaced by an aryl (or heteroaryl) group, the transformation is termed "direct arylation". This approach to the formation of key (hetero)aryl-(hetero)aryl bonds is complementary to traditional methods, such…

Harwood, Cynthia J.; Hewett, Sarah; Towns, Marcy H. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
This communicaton shares with the chemistry education community the rubrics used to evaluate student videos associated with using a pipet, using a buret, and making a solution in a volumetric flask that were part of a digital badging project. The rubrics were used across multiple general chemistry courses, hundreds of teaching assistants, and…

Sengul, Ozden; Schwartz, Renee – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
A physics laboratory instructor used action research to effectively implement a 5E instructional approach, which incorporated scientific practices. The instructor explored how to integrate the instructional approach into practice, challenges present in the implementation, and students' learning experiences. The data were collected during three…

Navarre, Edward C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
A simple computer interface for controlling a compact spectrograph for use as a spectrophotometer in an undergraduate teaching laboratory was developed. The project was implemented on a Raspberry Pi computer which permits the integration of a light source into the software. The interface was written in Python to facilitate modification by the user…

Kovacevic, Tanja; Skinner, Austin; Fisk, John D.; Fishback, Vanessa; Reed, Scott M. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2020
The complete structural analysis and resynthesis of an unknown compound, selected from a library of dipeptides, provided a framework for a course that built from expository experiments toward a guided-inquiry approach. We used this semester-long lab as a replacement for conventional second semester organic chemistry laboratory and successfully…

Pufall, Miles A.; Wilson, Anne M. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Providing students with training in advanced laboratory skills is an essential part of scientific education. At the same time, engaging students in research is becoming equally important. Classroom-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have emerged to fill this need, and can take many forms. In this article we describe reengineering an…

Almuhammadi, A.; Khallaf, A.; Abuljadayel, D.; Alsudairi, D.; Ashqar, H.; Alharbi, H.; Alhazmi, I.; Zelai, N.; Hakami, N.; Alhindi, R. – International Education Studies, 2019
Teaching has become a challenge mission among generations as direct instructions are not effective anymore and; therefore, students need to be convinced for sharing and fulfilling their responsibilities. In this study, students are perceived to act as role models in managing the laboratory classes of general biology. Four groups were classified as…

Noei, Nima; Imani, Iman Mohammadi; Wilson, Lee D.; Azizian, Saeid – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
A low-cost and simple setup to measure the densities of liquids is introduced herein. The results and reliability of this setup were evaluated for pure liquids, water-ethanol binary mixtures, and aqueous NaCl solutions. The constructed densitometer provided density values with acceptable relative errors (less than ±3.0%), which were compared to…

Seery, Michael K.; Jones, Ariana B.; Kew, Will; Mein, Thomas – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Experimental design is a desirable outcome of laboratory education. Incorporating inquiry into the laboratory curriculum is attractive, but there are acknowledged concerns from practical, theoretical, and epistemological perspectives, and these are accentuated in upper-division courses. In this work, we draw on the extensive literature relating to…

Suartini, Tuti – SAGE Open, 2019
The development of vocational high school teaching and learning in Indonesia becomes very important when the country is faced with the demands for quality workers that will be necessary to face the free trade era of the 2015 ASEAN Economic Community (AEC). To anticipate this, solutions in terms of instructional strategies should be prepared,…

Periyannan, Gopal R. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2019
Technique-centered biochemistry or molecular biology undergraduate laboratory curricula do not offer significant opportunities for thoughtful, in-depth exploration of the science to foster investigative learning. To demonstrate inclusion of inquiry-driven laboratory experiments into the undergraduate biochemistry and molecular biology curricula, a…

Park, Kunsoon; Park, Narang; Heo, Wookjae – Journal of Education for Business, 2019
When developing effective training programs, it is important to know students' expectations of laboratory classes. The authors collected 170 surveys from students in one laboratory class to investigate the underlying dimensions of their expectations of training. Factor analysis identified the following six dimensions of students' expectations:…
