Ryan, Wendy L.; St. Iago-McRae, Ezry – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
Experimentation is the foundation of science and an important process for students to understand and experience. However, it can be difficult to teach some aspects of experimentation within the time and resource constraints of an academic semester. Interactive models can be a useful tool in bridging this gap. This freely accessible simulation…

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…

McCabe, Declan J.; Knight, Evelyn J. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2016
Since being introduced by Connor and Simberloff in response to Diamond's assembly rules, null model analysis has been a controversial tool in community ecology. Despite being commonly used in the primary literature, null model analysis has not featured prominently in general textbooks. Complexity of approaches along with difficulty in interpreting…

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…

Berkes, Charlotte; Chan, Leo Li-Ying – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
We have developed a semester-long laboratory project for an undergraduate immunology course in which students study multiple aspects of macrophage biology including differentiation from progenitors in the bone marrow, activation upon stimulation with microbial ligands, expression of cell surface markers, and modulation of cytokine production. In…

Metzger, Kelsey J. – Bioscene: Journal of College Biology Teaching, 2015
Effectively managing active learning classrooms (ALCs), particularly large ALCs, can present a variety of challenges for instructors. There is a rapidly growing body of research literature addressing the impact of ALCs on student engagement and learning, but fewer studies have focused on investigating instructional practices and instructors in…
