Dong, Xu; Xin, Yi; Ye, Li; Ma, Yufang – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2009
We have developed and implemented a serial experiment in molecular cloning laboratory course for undergraduate students majored in biotechnology. "Pseudomonas putida xylE" gene, encoding catechol 2, 3-dioxygenase, was manipulated to learn molecular biology techniques. The integration of cloning, expression, and enzyme assay gave students…

Black, Michael W.; Tuan, Alice; Jonasson, Erin – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2008
The emergence of molecular tools in multiple disciplines has elevated the importance of undergraduate laboratory courses that train students in molecular biology techniques. Although it would also be desirable to provide students with opportunities to apply these techniques in an investigative manner, this is generally not possible in the…

Geisinger, Adriana; Cossio, Gabriela; Wettstein, Rodolfo – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2006
We report the development of a 3-week laboratory activity for an undergraduate molecular biology course. This activity introduces students to the practice of basic molecular techniques such as restriction enzyme digestion, agarose gel electrophoresis, cloning, plasmid DNA purification, Southern blotting, and sequencing. Students learn how to carry…

Leitch, Ruth; Mitchell, Stephanie – Improving Schools, 2007
With the advent of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC), there is an increasing requirement that schools ensure children and young people's views are voiced, listened to and taken seriously on matters of significance. Encouraging these shifts by law is one thing; changing the culture in schools is another. For a…

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…

Glas, Cees A. W.; van der Linden, Wim J. – Applied Psychological Measurement, 2003
Developed a multilevel item response (IRT) model that allows for differences between the distributions of item parameters of families of item clones. Results from simulation studies based on an item pool from the Law School Admission Test illustrate the accuracy of the item pool calibration and adaptive testing procedures based on the model. (SLD)
