Donkers, Martina; Orthia, Lindy A. – International Journal of Science Education, Part B: Communication and Public Engagement, 2016
Research into the role of fiction in engaging people with science is a growing area, but a little studied medium in this respect is "popular theatre," or non-pedagogic theatre that exists primarily as a work of art. This study investigated audience engagement with human cloning issues after seeing a performance of Caryl Churchill's 2002…

Joslyn, Erica – Management in Education, 2018
Although participatory models of distributed leadership have gained traction across the higher education sector in the UK, it is also the case that forms of exclusion continue to defy aspirations for improving diversity in senior leadership across higher education. This article contends that an (undemocratic) participatory model of distributed…

Wu, Chun; McCune, Tyler S. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
An approach for incorporating preliminary drug discovery research into a biochemistry laboratory is described. During a total of 42 hr (one 3-hr laboratory section a week for 14 weeks), students were exposed to bioinformatics; molecular cloning; protein expression, purification, and characterization; and enzymatic kinetic assays. This…

Cetin, Pinar Seda; Dogan, Nihal; Kutluca, Ali Yigit – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2014
Research exploring the possible link between quality of argumentation and content knowledge is not straightforward. Some studies suggest a positive relationship (e.g. Dawson & Schibeci in "J Biol Educ" 38(1):7-12, 2003) while others do not (e.g. Zohar & Nemet in "J Res Sci Teach" 39:35-62, 2002). This study examined the…

Mattsson, Tina – Gender and Education, 2015
Gender inequality in academia might be understood as an effect of the belief of a contradiction between woman and science, which make it difficult for women to appropriate the right to author and authorise acts of knowing and thinking in science. In relation to this concern, the aim of this article is to explore how a group of successful women…

Pope, Timothy; Dawson, Vaille; Koul, Rekha – Teaching Science, 2017
The advances of modern biotechnology provide teachers with a number of opportunities to explore socioscientific issues, and in doing so to enhance students' reasoning skills. Although some attempt has been made to understand cultural differences in students' informal reasoning across international and regional boundaries, there is limited research…

Wang, Jack T. H.; Schembri, Mark A.; Ramakrishna, Mathitha; Sagulenko, Evgeny; Fuerst, John A. – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2012
Molecular cloning skills are an essential component of biological research, yet students often do not receive this training during their undergraduate studies. This can be attributed to the complexities of the cloning process, which may require many weeks of progressive design and experimentation. To address this issue, we incorporated an…

Zhang, Jinyong; Jing, Haiming; Luo, Ping; Zhang, Xiaoli; Zou, Quanming – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Biotechnological pharmaceuticals is a key course offered to third-year undergraduates majoring in biotechnology in our university. However, students often experience difficulties in understanding the principles of related technologies. In this study, we developed and implemented an elective course on preliminary structural biology for…

Choden, Tashi; Kijkuakul, Sirinapa – International Journal of Instruction, 2020
Genetics can be a difficult topic to teach and learn in a traditional classroom. The objective of this qualitative classroom action research was to examine the effectiveness of a blend of problem-based learning (PBL) with scientific argumentation to improve student understanding of basic genetics. The research participants were grade 9 Bhutanese…

Cebesoy, Umran Betul; Oztekin, Ceren – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2018
Teachers have a crucial role to play in raising future generations of citizens who are aware of issues in genetics literacy such as gene therapy, cloning, and stem cell research. Teachers' teaching practices are influenced by their knowledge in genetics literacy and their attitudes towards different issues. Accordingly, this study explored the…
