George-Williams, Stephen R.; Karis, Dimitri; Ziebell, Angela L.; Kitson, Russell R. A.; Coppo, Paolo; Schmid, Siegbert; Thompson, Christopher D.; Overton, Tina L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
How students behave and learn in the teaching laboratory is a topic of great interest in chemical education, partly in order to justify the great expense of teaching laboratories. Much effort has been put into investigating how students think, feel and physically act in these unique learning environments. One such attempt was made through the…

Lawrie, Gwendolyn A.; Schultz, Madeleine; Bailey, Chantal H.; Dargaville, Bronwin L. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Several common characteristics of the journey towards tertiary teaching expertise have been deduced through a detailed analysis of transcripts that originated from interviews conducted with ten recognised excellent tertiary chemistry teachers. The interviews were structured around Loughran's CoRe questions and yielded deep insights into the topic…

Veiga, Nicolas; Luzardo, Florencia; Irving, Kenneth; Rodriguez-Ayan, Maria N.; Torres, Julia – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
As a fundamental part of their chemical education, first-year undergraduate students are substantially involved in laboratory activities. Despite the specific teaching staff choices on the main laboratory aims, students normally receive a vast amount of information during these activities. Apart from understanding theoretical content, fundamental…

Rodriguez, Jon-Marc G.; Bain, Kinsey; Towns, Marcy H.; Elmgren, Maja; Ho, Felix M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Graphical representations are an important tool used to model abstract processes in fields such as chemistry. Successful interpretation of a graph involves a combination of mathematical expertise and discipline-specific content to reason about the relationship between the variables and to describe the phenomena represented. In this work, we…

Lu, Shanshan; Bi, Hualin; Liu, Xiufeng – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Students have various conceptions of electrolytes in learning chemistry. The aim of this study is to identify 10th grade students' understanding of the electrolyte concept by using a phenomenographic method. Eight students, whose abilities were at different levels, were selected and interviewed. The findings show that four distinctive categories…

Morais, C.; Araujo, J. L.; Saude, I. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
A storytelling approach has been seen as a powerful way to teach science and arouse interest and promote positive attitudes toward learning science in the early years. The purpose of our study was to determine how middle school students -- Key Stage 3 (KS3) aged 12-14 in Portuguese schools -- experienced learning chemistry through storytelling and…

Kararo, Alex T.; Colvin, Rachel A.; Cooper, Melanie M.; Underwood, Sonia M. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The relationship between chemical structure and physical and chemical properties is essential to chemistry. Studies have shown that students have difficulty using structural representations to predict properties, which is not surprising because of the sequence of inferences that are required for sense-making. However, obtaining a nuanced model of…

Taber, Keith S. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
After more than seven years as editor of "Chemistry Education Research and Practice" ("CERP"), the author is standing down from this role, and this will be the last editorial of his tenure. Indeed, by the time this editorial appears in the first issue of the 2019 volume, the author will have handed over to Michael Seery, who…

Adbo, Karina; Carulla, Clara Vidal – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
This study focuses on the design of play-based learning activities for chemistry in preschool. Viewing chemistry as a part of our past and present culture instead of as a subject, provides the backdrop for a more holistic approach to chemistry within this specific environment. A cultural-historical perspective, together with scaffolding, emergent…

Daman Huri, Noor Haslina; Karpudewan, Mageswary – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
STEM education is gaining increasing attention globally to fulfill the acute shortage of STEM workforce. Executing STEM education is frequently viewed as a complex and challenging agenda. The current study proposes Integrated STEM-lab activities in the teaching and learning of electrolysis. The activities use real-world contexts as a platform to…

Moon, Alena; Moeller, Robert; Gere, Anne Ruggles; Shultz, Ginger V. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Science educators recognize the need to teach scientific ways of knowing and reasoning in addition to scientific knowledge. However, characterizing and assessing scientific ways of knowing and reasoning is challenging. Writing-to-learn offers one way of eliciting and supporting students' reasoning; further, writing serves to externalize and make…

Pavlin, Jerneja; Glazar, Sasa A.; Slapnicar, Miha; Devetak, Iztok – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
The purpose of this paper is to explore and explain students' achievements in solving context-based gas exercises comprising the macroscopic and submicroscopic levels of chemical concepts. The influence of specific variables, such as interest in learning, formal-reasoning abilities, and visualisation abilities, is a significant factor that should…

Moreira, Patricia; Marzabal, Ainoa; Talanquer, Vicente – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Understanding how chemistry teachers' interventions shape the reasoning that students express after a lesson is critical to support prospective and in-service teachers as they work with students' ideas in the classroom. In this qualitative research study, we analysed changes in the reasoning expressed by 10th grade students in a Chilean school in…

Lastusaari, Mika; Laakkonen, Eero; Murtonen, Mari – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
Changing majors or dropping out are of great concern to universities worldwide, but the role of learning approaches in terms of students' persistence has not been previously studied. Changing majors, especially in chemistry, is a severe problem in Finland. Here, learning approach data were collected with the ChemApproach questionnaire from 733…

Sreenivasulu, Bellam; Subramaniam, R. – Chemistry Education Research and Practice, 2019
We report here on an exploratory study done with a sample of university students (N = 140) which sought to explore their understanding of the term 'coordination number', a concept encountered in the topic of transition metals chemistry, through a simple open-ended question. The findings show that the conceptual space related to the conceptions…
