Liang, Liang; Yan, Xian-Chun; Cao, Xiu-Li; He, Lin; Zheng, Min-Hua; Qin, Hong-Yan; Han, Hua – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
With the better understanding of human genome and genetic contributions to human complex diseases, more and more clinical genetic tests have been developed for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of human diseases. This has raised new challenges to classroom teaching of medical genetics (MG) in medical education of undergraduates, who are…

Trew, Alison J.; Early, Craig; Ellis, Rebecca; Nash, Julia; Pemberton, Katharine; Tyler, Paul; Skerry, Caroline; Bird, Lucy; Shallcross, Naomi K. R.; Harrison, Timothy G.; Shallcross, Dudley E. – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Topics associated with the biological sciences form a significant fraction of the curriculum in science at primary school level in the U.K. In this methodology paper we demonstrate how a wide range of research articles associated with the biological sciences can be disseminated to a primary school audience and how children can carry out…

Pedrera, Oier; Ortega-Lasuen, Unai; Ruiz-González, Aritz; Díez, José Ramón; Barrutia, Oihana – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Although citizenship's literacy in biodiversity is a promising way of confronting its loss, the unawareness about this topic is generalised particularly regarding plants. The latter phenomenon, named Plant Blindness (PB), not only refers to the inability to notice and identify the surrounding plants, but also to the lack of knowledge about the…

Bopardikar, Anushree; Bernstein, Debra; McKenney, Susan – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
School-based citizen-science can be a powerful means to engage youth in environmental education, yet developing robust science curricula around citizen-science activities is tremendously challenging. Prior research provides limited examples and very little guidance for curriculum designers. To support the designers of school-based citizen-science…

Smith, Kevin P.W.; Waddell, Edward A.; Dean, Annette N.; Anandan, Shivanthi; Gurney, Susan; Kabnick, Karen; Little, Joy; McDonald, Matthew; Mohan, Jaya; Marenda, Daniel R.; Stanford, Jennifer S. – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) have been described as a mechanism to allow more undergraduates to engage in research experiences. To understand whether CUREs are viable to scale-up undergraduate access to research experiences, it is essential to carefully evaluate whether CUREs promote comparable self-reported outcomes for…

Machová, Markéta; Ehler, Edvard – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Even though genetics has been implemented in biology curricula at secondary schools for decades, reports repeatedly indicate that students still hold various misconceptions about this topic. To successfully target these misconceptions, we need to know their nature and origin. We aimed to investigate these properties in the Czech educational system…

Owen, Gavin R.; Whalley, Natalie; Brenner, Elisabeth – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Undergraduate science degrees in South Africa seldom offer explicit courses focussing on improving the disciplinary writing skills required for effectively communicating scientific research. Similarly, most students entering the 'Honours' degree in Molecular Medicine at a South African university have not commonly been afforded opportunities to…

Ibarra, Luis Exequiel; Foresto, Emiliano – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Flow cytometry has become an important tool in the fields of veterinary, medicine, and biological sciences in general. However, in the introductory and even in advanced university degree courses, students do not have many opportunities to be in contact with this type of technology. This situation motivated us to design a simple and inexpensive…

Robles-Piñeros, Jairo; Tateo, Luca – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
The article presents the results of an exploratory-qualitative study about children´s conceptions of ecology in relation to media messages. The objective of the study has been to identify the role of ecologism and environmental campaigns on ecology conceptions of 105 6th grade children, age 10-12, from an educational institution in Bogota,…

Kamarainen, Amy; Grotzer, Tina; Thompson, Meredith; Sabey, David; Haag, Brooke – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Education reform calls for portraying science as a process of inquiry and argumentation grounded in the epistemic traditions of a domain. While experimentation is a core scientific investigation strategy, diverse approaches are represented across different domains of science. Ecosystem scientists use experiments as a core part of their…

Caño, Lidia; Ormazabal, Unai – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Understanding natural selection requires mentally linking various key concepts and processes. Many students find it difficult to construct scientific explanations about natural selection and might display misconceptions. Our study aimed to investigate the understanding of natural selection and the existence of teleological or other misconceptions…

Esquivel-Martín, Tamara; Bravo-Torija, Beatriz; Pérez-Martín, José Manuel – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Cell division is one of the most relevant processes in Biology, for instance, to understand the reproduction of species or the development of tumours. Learning this content requires not addressing it out of context but integrating it into real-life problems that demand students apply their knowledge about cell division. In this study, the authors…

Shrader, Adrian M.; Louw, Ina – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
For conservation biologists to be effective, they need to be able to communicate to the general public. In today's world, communicating means tapping into social media platforms. To get our final-year undergraduate students to engage with using social media as a communication tool, we had each of them create a video, blog, or podcast about a…

Tasdelen, Özlem; Güven, Turan – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
This study investigated how pre-service biology teachers perceived the concepts of 'system' -- as the basic component of the systems thinking approach -- and 'biological system' specific to biology. The most important characteristics of a system appear as elements, interactions, interconnections, hierarchy, purpose and forming a whole. The data of…

Borsos, Éva; Boric, Edita; Patocskai, Mária – Journal of Biological Education, 2023
Plant blindness is becoming a universal phenomenon among both students and adults. They do not know the names of the plants in their immediate environment, nor are they interested in familiarising themselves with the plants that surround them. Teachers and outdoor education can play a vital role in reversing and preventing this phenomenon;…
