Dua, Jasveen; Dhawan, Samriti – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Science is all about how and why. India is a land of diversity and having an equally diverse education system. In a diverse classroom, it is important for the teacher to impart knowledge in such a way that it kindles curiosity in the learner. The best way to communicate science is 'learning by doing'. This requires great skill and apt teaching…

Schneeweiss, Niklas; Gropengiesser, Harald – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Employing scientific reasoning when giving biological explanations comes easily to the experienced scientist. However, students often encounter difficulty when they attempt to explain biological phenomena. One significant obstacle appears to be the failure or inability to bear in mind the levels of organization. To address this issue, learning…

Morsink, M. C.; van der Valk, C. M. T.; Tysma, O.; van der Griendt, J. C.; van Leeuwen, W. B.; van der Aar, A. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
In our biomedical educational program, students follow research courses. Traditionally, students receive research questions and predetermined, teacher-prepared lists of laboratory materials to use. Currently, we aim to increase our research courses' inquiry level towards a more open inquiry by omitting these teacher-prepared lists. Additionally,…

Thomas, Nicole Juliana; Vo, Tina – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Natural Selection is prevalent throughout life science learning standards across K-12 contexts. Additionally, undergraduates who are interested in the fields of biology and education must also be well informed on the topic, as it is foundational to some biology research and necessary to touch upon within elementary and secondary classrooms. This…

Guenther, Courtney; Hayes, Matthew; Davis, Andrew; Stern, Matthew – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
3D printing is a widely used technology in a number of STEM fields and can be incorporated into undergraduate education in order to engage students in active learning. Using the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) framework, this study examined student perceptions of completing 3D printing of a physical model in two different…

Dykes, Jeff; Johnson, Kathleen; Cousins, Julia; Simpson, Leo; Hull, Iver – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
We used a novel approach that combined direct PCR of plant tissue and SRAP DNA fingerprinting to seek to identify the crosses made in "Brassica rapa" used in the Wisconsin Fast Plants. Our goal was to develop a rapid method for students to use in a biology, botany, or genetics class to identify the parental types (purple stem, non-purple…

Hartert, Keenan T. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
The COVID-19 pandemic forced higher education to develop new strategies to meet the needs of students. One of the most critical issues was delivering an online experience in undergraduate Biology laboratories aimed at meeting hands-on outcomes, specifically within the health sciences. Hybrid lab group models in which students rotated between…

Lemelin, Cosette; Gross, Cole D.; Bertholet, Renette; Gares, Sheryl; Hall, Mark; Henein, Hani; Kozlova, Valentina; Spila, Michelle; Villatoro, Valentin; Haave, Neil – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Shorter lectures punctuated with activities to engage students in the learning process can increase student understanding, critical thinking, and overall learning. However, some students have negative responses to active teaching strategies. Here we explore the topic of student resistance to active learning, including reasons for this opposition…

Nannas, Natalie J. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
CRISPR-Cas9 is revolutionizing how we conduct scientific research, treat disease, and develop new crops. The widespread impact of this genome-editing technology makes it critical for undergraduate students to understand and engage with this new tool. In this article, we describe a multi-week lab module that teaches undergraduates how to design…

Rioux, Pierre; Blier, Pierre – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Students in environmental sciences, ecology, or wildlife management are often reluctant to acquire training in basic laboratory techniques. To advocate the importance of this training, we reviewed literature in the fields of biological and environmental science for one frequently used technique--centrifugation--and evaluated whether centrifugation…

Grantham, Michael L.; Ganong, Carissa; Drake, Dawn M.; Elias, Ashley; Mills, Mark S. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Undergraduate research experiences benefit students' scientific skills, and recent trends in undergraduate research and education include focusing on interdisciplinary projects and on place-based learning. Here we describe a semester-long pilot interdisciplinary undergraduate research program focused on local aquatic ecosystems, discuss perceived…

Zhu, Bin; Levesque, Aime A. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Technology has long been implemented in education and iPads are increasingly used in undergraduate courses. This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of using iPads on undergraduate student learning in the ecology laboratory in 2013-2015. Two sections of the ecology laboratory were studied each year: one group used iPads and the other used…

Darling, Randi A.; Smith, Alyssa; Mello, Alex – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2021
Many science departments encourage students to gain experience conducting research. However, finding ecological research projects that allow students to test a hypothesis in the field, over the relatively short time span of a semester, can be challenging. This article describes an inquiry-based research activity examining the influence that urban…

Halpin, Patricia A. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2020
To increase our students' access to study abroad opportunities, a full semester course was designed that embedded a study abroad trip to Belize during spring break. The course fulfills both an upper level science course for both biology and biotechnology majors and an elective course for the Global Studies minor. Ten students enrolled in the…

St. Clair, Bryn; Jensen, Jamie L. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2020
Cognitive scientists and psychology researchers have given growing attention to evidence of the testing effect, that is, the improvement of students' recall through memory-retrieval practice in the form of quizzes and exams. While laboratory experiments consistently show dramatic positive effects on learning through the testing effect,…
