Davis, William S.; Liu, Bo; Kim, Josephine – Foreign Language Annals, 2023
Given the ongoing shortage of world language teachers in the United States, growing attention has developed toward recruiting new teachers at the secondary and postsecondary levels. This mixed methods study examined why some university noneducation students involved in language study at a large public institution indicated they would consider…

Capotosto, Lauren; Reardon, Kristina – Journal of Education for Teaching: International Research and Pedagogy, 2023
This qualitative study examined how 32 undergraduate students enrolled in pedagogy-focused courses at a liberal arts college in the USA made sense of disciplinary literacy as a broad construct. After discussing course readings and interviewing faculty members to understand the literacy practices used in their fields of study, these potential…

McBride, Krista K. – Physics Teacher, 2023
It can be difficult to find ways to motivate students while teaching a physics course for non-physics students. Students come to class with many different attitudes and preconceptions, some of which are detrimental to their learning. As physics educators, we strive for student engagement and motivation in course material no matter what type of…

Steven J. Morrison; Aaron D. Himes; Mark Montemayor; D. Gregory Springer – Journal of Research in Music Education, 2024
Although music education researchers often utilize music major status as a single-item proxy variable for musician status--and with this designation presume musical competencies or abilities of research participants--there is a lack of research demonstrating links between status as a music major and those assumed competencies. In this study, we…

Munakata, Mika; Monahan, Ceire; Krupa, Erin; Vaidya, Ashwin – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2023
Assessment is an issue that is central to the lives of educators and students alike. At all levels, from programmatic to course-specific, instructors strive to assess in a way that accurately measures achievement or progress relative to one's goals. This paper reports on students' experiences with alternative assessments in our undergraduate…

Austin Heil; Cara Gormally; Peggy Brickman – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
More than 8 out of every 10 college students are not STEM majors, yet we have little understanding about learning expectations for them. We used the results of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute BioInteractive learning objectives survey of 38 instructors teaching nonscience major courses to characterize learning objectives (LOs) in these courses.…

Pamela Burdman; Melodie Baker – Campaign for College Opportunity, 2023
This brief focuses on the important role that math requirements contribute to inequity in access to college, in particular the value placed on calculus, even though it is not an essential course for students who are seeking non-STEM degrees. The boost earned by students who are fortunate enough to have access to calculus, a benefit unequally…

Nápoles, Jessica; Geringer, John M.; Adams, Kari; Springer, D. Gregory – Journal of Research in Music Education, 2022
We examined how movement impacted listeners' perceptions of choral performances. Participants (N = 115; n = 60 nonmusic majors, n = 55 music majors) viewed excerpts of Moses Hogan's "Didn't My Lord Deliver Daniel" under four conditions: good tone/expressive movement (GT/EM), good tone/static movement (GT/SM), poor tone/expressive…

Woodring, R. J.; Feeney, Mary K. – Journal of Public Affairs Education, 2023
Public affairs programs have long aimed to advance public service education. First defined as preparing public servants for government employment, public affairs programs have expanded to advancing the public interest and governance across all sectors. While modern public affairs programs have become more expansive in how they define public…

Thomas, Nicole J.; Vo, Tina; Sabel, Jaime – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Although most students in nonmajor biology courses will not enter careers in science, they will need a working understanding of biology and how it relates to their lives to make informed decisions on important topics that will affect their lives, including food, environment, energy, and health. This research seeks to improve on nonmajors'…

Marchisio, Marina; Remogna, Sara; Roman, Fabio; Sacchet, Matteo – Education Sciences, 2022
The role of mathematics in several scientific disciplines is undisputed; work and everyday life take great advantage of its application. Nevertheless, students often tend to not particularly like it and to consider it of little interest. It is also believed that only people with a certain attitude are capable of mastering the subject. In…

Horikoshi, Ryo; Shirotani, Dai; Shioyama, Hiroshi – Journal of Chemical Education, 2022
Buckminsterfullerene (C[subscript 60]), along with diamond and graphite, appears in many chemistry textbooks as an example of an allotrope of carbon. This communication describes a hands-on activity to explore the characteristic structure of C[subscript 60] through the construction of a structural model using transistors and plastic tubes…

Jessica A. Callus – ProQuest LLC, 2022
Over the years it has become more common for practitioners to use the NGSS scientific practices to inform curricula at the undergraduate level. One of these practices is argumentation, the process of engaging in argument from evidence. Argumentation is an important part of the scientific process because scientists must make claims about their…

Hu, Xinping; Safiena, Sufiana; Goh, Yang Miang; Lin, Alexander – Educational Technology Research and Development, 2023
Virtual Reality (VR) provides an immersive and engaging experience that facilitates the teaching and learning of abstract concepts. This paper describes the design and implementation of the VR 360° (VR360) component of the Virtual and Augmented Reality for Structures (VARS) mobile application. This study used VARS to teach basic structural systems…

Dogan, Hamide; Shear, Edith; Contreras, Angel F. Garcia; Hoffman, Lion – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2022
We investigated understanding of the linear independence concept based on the type and nature of connections displayed in seven non-mathematics majors' interview responses to a set of open-ended questions. Through a qualitative analysis, we identified six categories of frequently displayed connections. There were also recognizable differences in…
