The integration of ideas, defined as the process by which students organize and connect new knowledge for deeper understanding, is essential for lifelong learning. (Government of Canda, Employment and Social Development Canada, 2017; Rateau, Kaufman, & Cletzer, 2015). Integration across sub-disciplines in biology requires an understanding of…

Lunsford, Eddie; Diviney, Michael – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2020
Anatomy and Physiology should be considered a gateway course due to its challenging scope and key role as a foundational prerequisite for many degree programs. Students often encounter gateway classes early in their college career when they are academically vulnerable due to their lack of university experience. A&P teaching methods are…

Lansverk, Allison L.; Lichti, Deborah A.; Blinka, Kate W.; Callis-Duehl, Kristine L. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2020
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) are increasing being taught to undergraduates across institutions and topics and offer an opportunity for more students to participate in authentic research. There are many types of "CUREs" with varying degrees of including all five elements identified by Auchincloss et al. (2014)…

Stover, Shawn K. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2020
Previous research has indicated that the use of case studies is effective for promoting critical thinking, enhancing interest in curricular content, and improving student understanding of core concepts. To prepare students for the challenges of a medical education, the biology faculty at a small, liberal arts college attempts to expose…

Vater, Ashley; Dahlhausen, Katherine; Coil, David A.; Anderton, Brittany N.; Wirawan, Christain S.; Caporale, Natalia; Furlow, J. David – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Hands-on research provides insight into the process of science and has been linked to increased retention of students in STEM disciplines. While large research universities can provide valuable undergraduate research experiences in laboratories, most cannot accommodate all of the students seeking research apprenticeships. Course-based…

Ghosh, Subir – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Pre-nursing students of an introductory Microbiology laboratory class, having learnt typical microbiological techniques during the semester, gained the confidence of conducting an inquiry-based project as part of their lab course work. Students cooperatively performed a microbiological analysis, to evaluate safety of sushi. This paper presents…

Mangis, J. W.; Mansur, T. B.; Kern, K. M.; Schroeder, J. R. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Undergraduate research is a valuable tool to demonstrate both the dedication and time required to be a successful biologist. One area of research that has intrigued students over the last several years is cytotoxicity. However, at smaller undergraduate institutions, the time, training, and funding available for these research studies may be…

Flanagan, K. M.; Addy, H. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Evidence of the effectiveness of active learning has resulted in a shift in post-secondary classrooms towards student-centred teaching, often relying heavily on peer-to-peer interactions. While the overall benefit of these teaching methods is established, it remains unclear whether all sub-populations of students benefit similarly. Given the…

Keus, Kelly; Grunwald, Jamie; Haave, Neil – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Midterm exams are a multi-use tool, providing evaluation of students for professors but also acting as a learning tool for students. Midterms may improve learning outcomes by contributing to the testing effect: the phenomenon in which retrieval of learned material (i.e., testing) produces improvements in long-term retention beyond those produced…

Leone, E. Austin; Salisbury, Sara L.; Nolen, Zachery L.; Idema, Jenn L.; Parsley, Kathryn M.; Stefanik, Katherine L.; Daniel, Kristy L. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Because students and professors place different values on syllabi components, perceptions of course objectives vary. Previous studies investigated the relationship between students' and instructors' expectations and syllabi content, but do not address the role of explicitly stated course objectives in syllabi. Our study used qualitative methods to…

Javonillo, Robert; Martin-Dunlop, Catherine – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Concept maps can be used in undergraduate biology as ways to visually communicate the relationships among things and events. One strength of concept mapping is that there is not just a single, correct way to compose one, given a list of particular concepts. Nevertheless there seem to be associations among ideas that are expressed frequently while…

de Ondarza, José – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
Pigments are light-absorbing substances that are abundant in nature, serving roles in coloration, camouflage, mate/pollinator attraction and photosynthesis among higher life forms. Among microbial organisms, pigments can also be found in a wide range of phyla. While some of these pigments function in photosynthesis, namely among algae and some…

Multiple worldwide efforts, including research experiences and internships for students, have been developed to increase diversity in STEM. In order to understand the outcomes of these research experiences, instruments have become available, but surprisingly, Spanish instruments for these purposes are scarce. The evaluation of diverse scientific…

Stover, Shawn K. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
This article describes an activity designed to hone students' lay communication skills. After carefully analyzing journal articles that highlight specific aspects of vertebrate physiology, students generate "press releases" to summarize experimental results and suggest potential applications of the research. By producing succinct,…

Laidlaw, Clinton; Jensen, Jamie – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2019
There exists a disconnect between instruction about biological evolution and acceptance of evolution by students. This disconnect prevents students from applying the theory to their lives or to their understanding of the field of biology. We examine the literature for common barriers to the acceptance of evolution, correlates with acceptance of…
