Castro de Jesus, Louise; Cabral, Luiz Mors – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2022
During the COVID-19 pandemic, all on-campus activities were required to be adapted to a distance-learning format, which was especially challenging for practical courses. Molecular biology is a mandatory course for biology undergraduates at Universidade Federal Fluminense. To overcome the impossibility of practical activities, we proposed…

Hsu, Jeremy L.; Lo, Stanley M.; Sato, Brian K. – American Biology Teacher, 2021
Promoting student understanding of biological concepts is a key part of biology education, and the ability to "understand" a concept forms one of the six categories of the oft-used Bloom's Taxonomy. Despite this, there remains no consensus as to what it means to understand a concept. While several formal definitions have been offered, we…

Mukagihana, Josiane; Nsanganwimana, Florien; Aurah, Catherine M. – LUMAT: International Journal on Math, Science and Technology Education, 2021
Linking motivation and learning is central to understanding students' motivation toward learning and learning itself as complex cognitive phenomena. Some studies focused on students' motivation toward learning biology in general; however, the shortage of studies on the effect of animation-based instruction and small-group laboratory activities as…

Günter, Katerina P.; Gullberg, Annica; Ahnesjö, Ingrid – Science Education, 2021
Studying biology entails negotiating knowledges, identities, and what paths, more or less well-trodden, to follow. Knowledges, identities, and paths within the very practices of science are fundamentally gendered and it is, therefore, critical to recognize when exploring students' learning and participation in natural sciences. Even though…

Cromley, Jennifer G.; Dai, Ting; Fechter, Tia; Nelson, Frank E.; Van Boekel, Martin; Du, Yang – Grantee Submission, 2021
Making inferences and reasoning with new scientific information is critical for successful performance in biology coursework. Thus, identifying students who are weak in these skills could allow the early provision of additional support and course placement recommendations to help students develop their reasoning abilities, leading to better…

Cell biology is widely considered to be the most important subject for promoting current modern biology. This paper sheds new light on the subject with the development of a diagnostic test to investigate misconceptions among pre-service biology teachers in cell biology. In this study, we developed and validated a diagnostic test -- known as the…

Batool, Rabia; Chachar, Gul Bahar; Alvi, Unaeza – Asia-Pacific Forum on Science Learning and Teaching, 2021
This study examined the teaching-learning issues related to the language in the biology classroom. It has explored the main issues of biological language that encounter students and teachers in the teaching-learning processes. The objectives of the study were to explore the perceptions and experiences of secondary school teachers about language…

Gervásio, João; Sampaio, Yala; Muniz, Paulo; Yamada, Camila; Felicori, Liza F. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2022
Learning synthetic biology is often seen as a far distant possibility, restricted to those who have the privilege of an academic career. We propose a student-centered discussion group around synthetic biology, aimed at people from high school onwards with different backgrounds to interact and learn about synthetic biology. We developed a 14-week…

Ayalew, Mentewab; Hylton, Derrick; Sistrunk, Jeticia; Melton, James; Johnson, Kiandra; Voit, Eberhard – PRIMUS, 2022
The integration of biology with mathematics and computer science mandates the training of students capable of comfortably navigating among these fields. We address this formidable pedagogical challenge with the creation of transdisciplinary modules that guide students toward solving realistic problems with methods from different disciplines.…

Individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and otherwise nonstraight and/or non-cisgender (LGBTQ+) have often not felt welcome or represented in the biology community. Additionally, biology can present unique challenges for LGBTQ+ students because of the relationship between certain biology topics and their LGBTQ+…

Acarli, Dilek Sultan; Acarli, Hüseyin Abdurrahman – Problems of Education in the 21st Century, 2020
Biology course can be difficult for students at times as it includes a lot of concepts and a relatively intense content. At this point, students' attitude towards biology and biology course is highly important because having developed a positive attitude would significantly affect behavior. In other words, those students who have developed a…

Isaak, Ricarda Corinna; Kleinert, Svea Isabel; Wilde, Matthias – European Journal of Educational Research, 2022
For biology students, the diversity, complexity, and abundance of content in this field yield a heavy study load. Hence, appropriate learning strategies are key in supporting learners' academic success. In biology, the factors gender and interest hold a unique position within the natural sciences, as there is an academic imbalance to the…
