Fornsaglio, Jamie L.; Sheffler, Zachary; Hull, David C.; Bobak, Angela – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Contemporary research suggests an urgent need for educators to improve the quality of STEM teaching and learning. We developed a semester-long model curriculum for STEM teaching and learning. The overarching goal of this study was to establish an authentic inquiry approach to advanced laboratory courses that is interdisciplinary, collaborative,…

Sakir, Noviana Astuti Irna; Kim, Jae Geun – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Representative biology textbooks for secondary school students from Korea, Indonesia, and the USA were compared to explain the differences among each country's biodiversity-related contents. For comparison, a specialised technical book was added as a reference book. Textbooks from Korea, Indonesia, and the USA have similar main sub-sections of…

Nyberg, Eva; Brkovic, Irma; Sanders, Dawn – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
In the twenty years since the first theory of 'plant blindness' was published much discussion has ensued concerning this phenomenon. More recent research, not only demonstrates that humans appear to favour animals over plants but also indicates a preference for mammals with forward-facing eyes. For this paper, we analysed answers to an online…

Svendsen, Pernille M.; Banner, Indira – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
The present study set out to examine the impact of linking in-school biology and biotechnology teaching with out-of-school biology and biotechnology experiences on the attitudes towards school biology and biotechnology of 16 upper secondary science students from eight different schools. The students had all been selected by the other students from…

Bonachea, Luis A. – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
While metabolism is a fundamental process in physiology, the measurement of metabolism by living animals often requires specialized and expensive equipment. In 2016, I developed a novel laboratory exercise for animal physiology students where students were able to observe the effects of temperature and long-term temperature acclimation on the…

Esteve, P.; Jaén, M.; Banos-González, I. – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
This study explores the progression in the perceptions that pre-service primary teachers have about the interdependence of people and invertebrate organisms, after implementing an inquiry proposal. By means of an inductive analysis, the reports made by the pre-service teachers were assessed and grouped into four models, according to the level of…

Suwono, Hadi; Prasetyo, Triastono Imam; Lestari, Umie; Lukiati, Betty; Fachrunnisa, Rifka; Kusairi, Sentot; Saefi, Muhammad; Fauzi, Ahmad; Atho'Illah, Mochammad Fitri – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Cell biology is widely considered to be the most important subject for promoting current modern biology. This paper sheds new light on the subject with the development of a diagnostic test to investigate misconceptions among pre-service biology teachers in cell biology. In this study, we developed and validated a diagnostic test -- known as the…

Torres-Porras, Jerónimo; Alcántara-Manzanares, Jorge – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Interpreting the landscape that surrounds us is somewhat personal. However, it is necessary to explore the interpretation made by future teachers so that we can reflect on their observations. This study collected data from five academic years of undergraduates in Early Childhood Education (N = 421), who were asked to fill out a questionnaire with…

Amprazis, Alexandros; Papadopoulou, Penelope; Malandrakis, George – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Children's conceptions of plants as living things are thoroughly analysed during the last decades. Additionally, many researchers showed interest in 'Plant Blindness', the people's tendency to ignore plants and underestimate them comparing to animals. Aim of this research is to validate plant blindness' intensity among Greek primary school…

Wyner, Yael; Doherty, Jennifer H. – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Even highly urban environments are settings for outdoor learning of local biodiversity, for they contain easily accessible street tree diversity that students walk pass daily. This study uses pre/post assessments and a tree observation curriculum grounded in scientific observation practice to understand the everyday and scientific tree observation…

Laukens, Kris; Eyckmans, Marleen; De Neuter, Nicolas; Naulaerts, Stefan; Meysman, Pieter; Van Ostade, Xaveer – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
While computational biology and bioinformatics became an inherent part of most life science degrees, it remains challenging to encourage students to employ these diverse skills in a practical research context. In this education paper, we present a method to enable students to acquire hands-on skills by the data-driven study of complex biomolecular…

Yesilyurt, Ezgi; Oztekin, Ceren; Cakiroglu, Jale; Deniz, Hasan – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
The purpose of this study was to explore science teachers' conceptions about micro-and macro-evolutionary processes. In this study, a case study was employed to compare and contrast novice and experienced middle school science teachers' evolution conceptions. The data were collected using four micro-and macro-evolutionary scenarios alongside…

Ageitos, Noa; Puig, Blanca – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Though argumentation is a key component of scientific knowledge construction practices, it rarely occurs in classrooms worldwide. Moreover, related literature in the context of genetics and evolution learning primarily addresses them separately. In contrast, this paper is part of broader research on genetics and evolution instruction taught…

Barrutia, Oihana; Díez, José Ramón – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Plant nutrition is a complex subject at any educational level therefore, identification of student's ideas regarding this scientific concept is important in order to define the best instructional learning method. In this study, we conduct a cross-age comparison of the conceptual understanding of compulsory students and prospective elementary…
