Cavagnetto, Andy R.; Premo, Joshua; Coleman, Zachary; Juergens, Kate – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
Small-group discussion is a central component of 21st-century biology classrooms. Many factors shape these discussions and thus influence potential learning gains. This study examined how accuracy and idea consideration shaped small-group discussions in undergraduate biology labs (12 groups, M = 42.8 talk turns). To do this, we asked: (1) Is there…

Bush, Seth; Calloway, Ashley; Bush, Emily; Himelblau, Ed – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
There is a national need to recruit more science teachers. Enhancing pathways to teaching for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors could help to address this need. The Learn By Doing Lab is a course in which STEM undergraduates teach hands-on life science and physical science to local third- through eighth-grade…

Chakraverty, Devasmita – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
Using a framework of colonization in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), this U.S.-based study examined how seven Native American PhD students/ postdoctoral scholars experienced impostor phenomenon. Participants were identified/ contacted at a national conference on minorities in STEM through purposeful sampling. Surveys…

Barnes, M. Elizabeth; Misheva, Taya; Supriya, K.; Rutledge, Michael; Brownell, Sara E. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
Hundreds of articles have explored the extent to which individuals accept evolution, and the Measure of Acceptance of the Theory of Evolution (MATE) is the most often used survey. However, research indicates the MATE has limitations, and it has not been updated since its creation more than 20 years ago. In this study, we revised the MATE using…

Stanton, Julie Dangremond; Means, Darris R.; Babatola, Oluwadamilola; Osondu, Chimezie; Oni, Omowunmi; Mekonnen, Birook – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
To support Black students in earning undergraduate science degrees, faculty need to understand the mechanisms that Black students use to succeed. Following an anti-deficit achievement approach, we used the community cultural wealth framework to investigate the strengths that Black undergraduates bring to their science majors. Community cultural…

The course-based research experience (CRE) with its documented educational benefits is increasingly being implemented in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. This article reports on a study that was done over a period of 3 years to explicate the instructional processes involved in teaching an undergraduate CRE. One hundred…

Pearson, Meaghan I.; Castle, Sarah D.; Matz, Rebecca L.; Koester, Benjamin P.; Byrd, W. Carson – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
The recent anti-racist movements in the United States have inspired a national call for more research on the experiences of racially marginalized and minoritized students in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. As researchers focused on promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion, we contend that STEM education must, as…

Clemmons, Alexa W.; Donovan, Deborah A.; Theobald, Elli J.; Crowe, Alison J. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
One critical step in the challenging process of curricular reform is determining how closely a curriculum aligns with national recommendations. Here, we examine the alignment of teaching, assessment, and student experience in undergraduate biology courses with the "Vision and Change" core competency recommendations. We applied the…

Cooper, A. C.; Southard, K. M.; Osness, J. B.; Bolger, M. S. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
Limited access to undergraduate research experiences for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics students has led to creation of classroom-based opportunities for students to participate in authentic science. Revising laboratory courses to engage students in the practices of science has been shown to have many benefits for students.…

Shah, Hana; Simeon, Josue; Fisher, Kathleen Quardokus; Eddy, Sarah L. – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
Biologists produce knowledge that can be applied to both global and personal challenges. Thus, communicating this knowledge to the general public is becoming increasingly important. One way information can move between different communities is through boundary spanners. Boundary spanners are individuals embedded in both communities who can…

Timm, Justin; Wools, Katharina; Schmiemann, Philipp – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
Pedigree problems are typical genetics tasks in schools. They are well suited to help students learn scientific reasoning, representing realistic genetic problems. However, pedigree problems also pose complex requirements, especially for secondary students. They require a suitable solution strategy and technical knowledge. In this study, we…

Hilton, Courtney B.; Goldwater, Micah B.; Hancock, Dale; Clemson, Matthew; Huang, Alice; Denyer, Gareth – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
A critical goal for science education is to design and implement learning activities that develop a deep conceptual understanding, are engaging for students, and are scalable for large classes or those with few resources. Approaches based on peer learning and online technologies show promise for scalability but often lack a grounding in cognitive…

White-Lewis, Damani K.; Romero, Ana L.; Gutzwa, Justin A.; Hurtado, Sylvia – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
There is a pressing need for deeper cultural awareness among postsecondary faculty, yet few studies focus on institutions with developing research infrastructure, which enroll large proportions of racially minoritized students. Using social exchange theory, we investigate faculty members' perceptions of "culturally diverse mentor…

Dewey, Jessica; Hicks, Jenna; Schuchardt, Anita – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2022
When conducting biological investigations, experts constantly integrate their conceptual and quantitative understanding of variation with the design and analysis of the investigation. This process is difficult for students, because curricula often treat these concepts as separate components. This study describes the effect of a curricular…

The COVID-19 pandemic shut down undergraduate research programs across the United States. A group of 23 colleges, universities, and research institutes hosted remote undergraduate research programs in the life sciences during Summer 2020. Given the unprecedented offering of remote programs, we carried out a study to describe and evaluate them.…
