Ütkür, Nur – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2018
The latest changes in the primary school Life Sciences Curriculum which saw a radical change with the constructivist approach being used in education were made in 2009 and 2015 in Turkey. The first use of 2015 Curriculum was when it was used in first grades in the academic year of 2016-2017. This study aims to make a comparison between the…

Wachsmuth, Lucas P.; Runyon, Christopher R.; Drake, John M.; Dolan, Erin L. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
Undergraduate life science majors are reputed to have negative emotions toward mathematics, yet little empirical evidence supports this. We sought to compare emotions of majors in the life sciences versus other natural sciences and math. We adapted the Attitudes toward the Subject of Chemistry Inventory to create an Attitudes toward the Subject of…

Mertanen, Katariina; Vainio, Saara; Brunila, Kristiina – Policy Futures in Education, 2022
Managing the future has become one of the major focuses of global governance in education. In its current mode, education seems unable to answer the needs and interests of the market and future megatrends, such as globalisation and digitalisation. Calls for precision education to introduce the usage of digital platforms, artificial intelligence in…

Mason, Andrew J. – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2021
This paper is a follow-up to a previous study, in which students (predominately life science majors) were found to self-express achievement goals with regard to a pre-lab problem-solving exercise in an algebra-based introductory physics course. In this paper, the same sampled population was also asked in the same feedback survey to discuss what…

Dempster, Edith R.; Kirby, Nicola F. – Perspectives in Education, 2018
Taxonomies of cognitive demand are frequently used to ensure that assessment tasks include questions ranging from low to high cognitive demand. This paper investigates inter-rater agreement among four evaluators on the cognitive demand of the South African National Senior Certificate Life Sciences examinations after training, practice and…

Geller, Benjamin D.; Tipton, Maya; Daniel-Morales, Brandon; Tignor, Nikhil; White, Calvin; Crouch, Catherine H. – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2022
A central goal of introductory physics for the life sciences (IPLS) is to prepare students to use physics to model and analyze biological situations, a skill of increasing importance for their future studies and careers. Here we report our findings on life science students' ability to carry out a sophisticated biological modeling task at the end…

Simboeck, Elisabeth; Marksteiner, Jessica; Machacek, Thomas; Wiessner, Katharina; Gepp, Barbara; Jesenberger, Veronika; Weihs, Anna; Leitner, Rita – Journal of Problem Based Learning in Higher Education, 2021
Hybrid courses with a focus on practice-orientated education and self-guided learning phases are on the rise on the higher education sector. Disciplines in Life Sciences implicate a high degree of practical laboratory expertise. The University of Applied Sciences (UAS) in Vienna, Austria, has thus been endeavoured offering students a high…

Guzey, S. Selcen; Ring-Whalen, Elizabeth A.; Harwell, Michael; Peralta, Yadira – International Journal of Science and Mathematics Education, 2019
The emphasis of reform-oriented science education today focuses on engineering integration in K-12 science classrooms. However, there is little research, particularly longitudinal research, on how different approaches to engineering integration influence student learning and interest. To address this gap in the literature, this study analyzed a…

Geller, Benjamin D.; Turpen, Chandra; Crouch, Catherine H. – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2018
We explore the sources of student engagement with curricular content in an Introductory Physics for Life Science (IPLS) course at Swarthmore College. Do IPLS students find some life-science contexts more interesting than others, and, if so, what are the sources of these differences? We draw on three sources of student data to answer this question:…

Sarikaya, Ismail; Töman, Ufuk; Öztürk, Mesut – Acta Didactica Napocensia, 2018
This research is conducted to find out whether the attitudes of preservice classroom teachers towards mother tongue, life science, mathematics and science teachings predict their attitudes towards teaching profession or not. Research is conducted in pursuant of relational screening model, which a nonempirical design is belonging to the…

Gomez, Noe A.; Du, Min – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
The field of life sciences encompasses a myriad of disciplines that collectively provide insight toward the intrinsic framework of life. Developmental physiology is one of these disciplines that can describe the origins of life at the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organismal level. However, organismal development is a continual process that…
