Butcher, Greg Q.; Rodriguez, Juan; Chirhart, Scott; Messina, Troy C. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
In order to increase students' awareness for and comfort with mathematical modeling of biological processes, and increase their understanding of diffusion, the following lab was developed for use in 100-level, majors/non-majors biology and neuroscience courses. The activity begins with generation of a data set that uses coin-flips to replicate…

Haave, Neil – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
E-portfolios have the potential to transform students' learning experiences. They promote reflection on the significance of what and how students have learned. Such reflective practices enhance students' ability to articulate their knowledge and skills to their peers, teachers, and future employers. In addition, e-portfolios can help assess the…

Carter, B. Elijah; Wiles, Jason R. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
Given the diverse array of media sources available to students today, it stands to reason that some media outlets would be of greater quality than others when communicating particular subjects to students. But what constitutes effectiveness among the many choices in information sourcing might not be easily intuited. For example, previous findings…

Christensen, David R. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
Remote camera-traps are commonly used to estimate the abundance, diversity, behavior and habitat use of wildlife in an inexpensive and nonintrusive manner. Because of the increasing use of remote-cameras in wildlife studies, students interested in wildlife biology should be exposed to the use of remote-cameras early in their academic careers.…

González, Edward L. F.; Lewis, C. Thomas; Slayback-Barry, Denise; Yost, Robert W. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
For a first-year seminar, Windows on Science, the authors developed a cooperative learning activity around film designed to meet two of the campus-wide Principles of Undergraduate Learning. The teaching method utilizes the power of storytelling by screening narrative and documentary films. In the process, the methodology helps students to realize…

Soto, Julio G.; Everhart, Jerry – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
Biology faculty at San José State University developed, piloted, implemented, and assessed a freshmen course sequence based on the macro-to micro-teaching approach that was team-taught, and organized around unifying themes. Content learning assessment drove the conceptual framework of our course sequence. Content student learning increased…

Genade, Tyrone – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
Plastic embryological models lack the excitement of seeing real, live embryos. Chick embryos are often used to demonstrate embryological development and blood circulation to students but this necessitates the death of the organism. "Kryptolebias marmoratus" embryos are large and can be viewed by means of a light microscope without need…

Wright, L. Kate; Newman, Dina L.; Cardinale, Jean A.; Teese, Robert – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
The typical "flipped classroom" delivers lecture material in video format to students outside of class in order to make space for active learning in class. But why give students passive material at all? We are developing a set of high-quality online educational materials that promote active, hands-on science learning to aid in teaching…

Michael, Nancy A.; Libarkin, Julie C. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
Unless sought out by the individual, University and College faculty typically receive minimal, if any, pedagogical training as part of their career development. This perspectives essay first introduces pedagogical training for instructors in higher education by comparing it to the training required for primary and secondary school educators. Using…

Webb, Rebecca L.; Bilitski, James; Zerbee, Alyssa; Symans, Alexandra; Chop, Alexandra; Seitz, Brianne; Tran, Cindy – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
The study of embryonic development of multiple organisms, including model organisms such as frogs and chicks, is included in many undergraduate biology programs, as well as in a variety of graduate programs. As our knowledge of biological systems increases and the amount of material to be taught expands, the time spent instructing students about…

Peterson, Elizabeth K.; Carrico, Pauline – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
In this paper, we describe a two-week learning module where students tested the role of the "fruitless" gene on aggression and courtship in "Drosophila melanogaster" via team-based learning (TBL) strategies. The purpose of this module was to determine if TBL could be used in the future as a platform to implement the course…

Haave, Neil C. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
Capstone experiences have high educational impact with various approaches available for biology. However, no information exists regarding the pervasiveness of capstone courses in Canadian and American biology programs. This study surveyed the prevalence and character of biology capstone courses in the USA and Canada. The survey included a majority…

Planchard, Matthew; Daniel, Kristy L.; Maroo, Jill; Mishra, Chandrani; McLean, Tim – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
We conducted a mixed methods study in an upper-level genetics course exploring the relationships between student motivation, homework completion, and academic achievement at the college level. We used data from an open-ended questionnaire, homework grades and completion reports, and exam scores. We used these data sources to measure self-perceived…

Munn, Bethany; Ericson, Brad; Carlson, Darby J.; Carlson, Kimberly A. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
A single fly RT-PCR protocol has recently been developed to detect the presence of the persistent, horizontally transmitted Nora virus in "Drosophila." Wild-caught flies from Ohio were tested for the presence of the virus, with nearly one-fifth testing positive. The investigation presented can serve as an ideal project for biology…

Martin, Kirsten H. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
Undergraduate biology programs in smaller liberal arts colleges are increasingly becoming focused on health science fields. This narrowing of focus potentially decreases opportunities for these students to explore other sub-fields of biology. This perspectives article highlights how one small university in Connecticut decided to institute a…
