Avargil, Shirly; Kohen, Zehavit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In many countries, the choice of a STEM career, especially in chemistry, is decreasing. A shortage of appropriately skilled workers can become a threat to any country's future achievements. Our research strives to understand behavioral trends and career choice factors related to personal and environmental themes. Building on the foundations of the…

Tekane, Rethabile; Pilcher, Lynne A.; Potgieter, Marietjie – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Although the implementation of blended learning in organic chemistry is rapidly growing, thus far, there are few studies published on the evaluation of supplemental types of blend in organic chemistry. This report covers a phenomenographic study that was designed to evaluate a supplemental type of blended learning approach implemented in a…

Kohen, Zehavit; Herscovitz, Orit; Dori, Yehudit Judy – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Facilitating students' chemical literacy is a focal point of current science education. This study examines views of chemists and chemistry teachers on chemical literacy and, more broadly, on scientific literacy of four kinds of stakeholders: scientists, teachers, STEM students, and the educated public. We explored the views of 347 participants,…

Gkitzia, Vasiliki; Salta, Katerina; Tzougraki, Chryssa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Meaningful understanding of chemistry, among others, includes the ability of an individual to think simultaneously at macroscopic, submicroscopic and symbolic levels, and this presupposes the competence to translate between different types of chemical representations. In this study, we investigated 11th grade Greek students' and 3rd year…

Lau, Poh Nguk – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The rhetorical argument that laboratory courses are crucial for training skilled STEM practitioners is ill-evidenced in teaching practice. The arduous task of implementing instructor-led skill assessment in large-cohort courses and persistent student "disengagement" from its educative goals are some obstacles. This study emphasized the…

Wright, Lyniesha Chanell; Oliver-Hoyo, Maria Theresa – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The mental models students have after engaging in an activity designed to teach infrared (IR) spectroscopy without reliance on IR absorption tables, were characterized. Qualitative analysis of semi-structured interviews, through open coding, allowed the classification of the mental models as Molecules as Dynamic (MAD), Bonds as Dynamic (BAD),…

Rüschenpöhler, Lilith; Markic, Silvija – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
While science self-concepts of secondary school students have received considerable attention, several important aspects of chemistry self-concepts have not yet been understood: gender relations, the impact of students' cultural backgrounds, and the impact of chemistry self-concept on learning processes. In the present study, (i) we could confirm…

Hosbein, Kathryn N.; Barbera, Jack – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Identity has been theorized to aid in student persistence within STEM disciplines. In this study, science and chemistry identity were defined as being recognized as a science or chemistry person within the classroom. To generalize the effects that identity has on student persistence, a measurable construct must be defined, operationalized, and…

Szalay, L.; Toth, Z.; Kiss, E. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
The results of an earlier empirical research study on modifying 'step-by-step' instructions to practical activities requiring one or more steps of the experiments to be designed by students initiated a longitudinal study to investigate the effectiveness of the approach for younger students and over a period of time. The longitudinal study that…

Smith, K. Christopher; Alonso, Valeria – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In this study a survey was developed to investigate students' engagement during general chemistry laboratory sessions. Aspects of engagement surveyed included cognitive, behavioral, and emotional engagement, and the survey items were focused on activities during the pre-laboratory introduction, laboratory procedures, and data collection.…

Duffy, Erin M.; Cooper, Melanie M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Inquiry-style laboratory courses, in which students engage in open-ended projects rather than a prescribed set of experimental steps ("cookbooks"), are becoming increasingly popular at the undergraduate level. Reformed curricula require reforms in training teachers; in the case of large universities, laboratory instructors are typically…

Sendur, Gulten – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
In order for students to reach a level of meaningful understanding of chemistry, it is vital that they are able to form accurate relationships between different concepts. In particular, in organic chemistry, identifying intermolecular reactions, considering these reactions as a whole, and defining their results will make important contributions to…

de Waard, Esther F.; Prins, Gjalt T.; van Joolingen, Wouter R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Sustainability has become a prominent theme in society and can be considered as an integral part of scientific citizenship. This study investigates to what extent the production, use and re-use of (bio)plastics initiates students' reasoning and to identify the kind of content knowledge students put forward. The structure of students' arguments was…

Kotul'akova, Katarina – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
Today, science education demands preparation of scientifically literate people, emphasizing more the process of working with information than owning it. Such a task requires a deep understanding of pedagogical content knowledge by science teachers. This study focuses on revealing the beliefs of prospective chemistry teachers during their teaching…

Pekdag, Bülent – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2020
This study explores the effect of video-based instruction on the safety rules in the chemistry laboratory on student achievement. The sample for the study comprised 61 ninth grade students enrolled in two different classes at a public high school. The students in the class designated as the experimental group (N = 32) were given video-based…
