Stammen, Andria – ProQuest LLC, 2018
The aim of this research is to develop a measurement instrument that is valid and reliable, called the Middle School-Life Science Concept Inventory (MS-LSCI), for the purpose of measuring the life science conceptual understanding of middle school-level students. Although there are several existing concept inventories related to biology concepts…

Lawrence, Maria; Yang, Li-Ling; Briggs, May; Hession, Alicia; Koussa, Anita; Wagoner, Lisa – Science Activities: Classroom Projects and Curriculum Ideas, 2016
A fifth grade life science lesson was implemented through a lesson study approach in two fifth grade classrooms. The research lesson was designed by a team of four elementary school teachers with the goal of emphasizing engineering practices consistent with the "Next Generation Science Standards" (NGSS) (Achieve Inc. 2013). The fifth…

Mokher, Christine; Pearson, Juliana – CNA Corporation, 2016
CNA Education served as the third-party evaluator for the Connecticut Health and Life Sciences Career Initiative (HL-SCI), a statewide initiative funded from September 2012 to March 2016 through a Trade Adjustment Assistance Community College and Career Training (TAACCCT) grant from the U.S. Department of Labor. The purpose of HL-SCI is to prepare…

Gouvea, Julia Svoboda – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2018
The "Current Insights" feature is intended to highlight diverse perspectives on teaching, learning and cognition from outside life sciences education. In this installment, I feature recent examples of scholarship examining the intersections between culture and equity in science education. The articles in this set build on intuitions we…

Eguz, Sule – Cypriot Journal of Educational Sciences, 2020
Virtual museum applications allowed individuals to access the museums that are located in distant areas and those who could not visit due to various reasons independent of time and space. The aim of this study was to determine the utilisation of virtual museum applications in life science courses based on the views of classroom teachers and the…

Sabel, Jaime L.; Forbes, Cory T.; Flynn, Leslie – International Journal of Science Education, 2016
Science learning environments should provide opportunities for students to make sense of and enhance their understanding of disciplinary concepts. Teachers can support students' sense-making by engaging and responding to their ideas through high-leverage instructional practices such as formative assessment (FA). However, past research has shown…

White, Rachel; Joyner, P. Matthew – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2020
Flow cytometry has become an important tool in the life sciences and medical fields, yet there are often few opportunities for undergraduate students to receive training with this type of instrumentation as part of life science curricula at many colleges and universities. We describe a straightforward laboratory exercise designed for a…

Limeri, Lisa B.; Asif, Muhammad Zaka; Bridges, Benjamin H. T.; Esparaza, David; Tuma, Trevor T.; Sanders, Daquan; Morrison, Alexander J.; Rao, Pallavi; Harsh, Joseph A.; Maltese, Adam V.; Dolan, Erin L. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Undergraduate research experiences in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields are championed for promoting students' personal and professional development. Mentorship is an integral part of undergraduate research, as effective mentorship maximizes the benefits undergraduates realize from participating in research. Yet almost no…

Andrews, Sarah E.; Runyon, Christopher; Aikens, Melissa L. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2017
In response to calls to improve the quantitative training of undergraduate biology students, there have been increased efforts to better integrate math into biology curricula. One challenge of such efforts is negative student attitudes toward math, which are thought to be particularly prevalent among biology students. According to theory,…

Lipscombe, Trevor C.; Mungan, Carl E. – Physics Teacher, 2020
Breathing is something we all do, usually without thinking about it. But when viewed through the lens of physics, respiration becomes an example of elementary thermodynamics. As shown here, the lungs can be modeled as a two-stroke heat engine. Breathing thereby provides a novel physics application for life science students, demonstrating the…

Sabel, Jaime L.; Forbes, Cory T.; Zangori, Laura – Journal of Science Teacher Education, 2015
To support elementary students' learning of core, standards-based life science concepts highlighted in the "Next Generation Science Standards," prospective elementary teachers should develop an understanding of life science concepts and learn to apply their content knowledge in instructional practice to craft elementary science learning…

Dou, Remy; Teodorescu, Raluca; Madsen, Adrian; Redish, Edward F.; Reeves, Mark – Physical Review Physics Education Research, 2019
Course syllabi are a required component of college and university courses. Syllabi present both broader course structuring practices, are a valuable "first impression" of what instructors want to offer their students, and are used as tools in course design. While best teaching practices suggest specific recommendations for syllabi…

Popovic, Marko – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
All living structures, from archaea to human, are open thermodynamic systems analysed through nonequilibrium thermodynamics. Nonequilibrium thermodynamics is a field with important applications to life sciences, which is very often left out of life science courses. A three-step method is suggested to make an easy introduction of nonequilibrium…

Matthews, Kelly E.; Belward, Shaun; Coady, Carmel; Rylands, Leanne; Simbag, Vilma – Higher Education Research and Development, 2016
Higher education policies are increasingly focused on graduate learning outcomes, which infer an emphasis on, and deep understanding of, curriculum development across degree programs. As disciplinary influences are known to shape teaching and learning activities, research situated in disciplinary contexts is useful to further an understanding of…
