Iqbal, Fatima; Gaffar, Fatema; Singh, Harprit – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
This study investigates the impact near-peer tutors (NPTs) have on the learning experience of students enrolled on the biomedical and medical science programmes at De Montfort University, UK. Using a questionnaire, tutees were able to comment on their confidence level on certain academic taught topics in human physiology before and after attending…

Araújo, Leonardo Augusto Luvison – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
The central importance of evolution to all biological sciences is recognised by many authors. Despite this scientific consensus, the theory of evolution is commonly presented as one discrete topic among many in the biology curriculum. Possible reasons for this scenario include discomfort with the content, ideological opposition and teachers'…

Ambrosino, Christine M.; Rivera, Malia Ana J. – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
This high school-level, place-based, inquiry-driven laboratory module familiarises students with techniques used to analyse animal behaviour while facilitating the development of the observational skills highlighted by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Throughout the module, students observe, quantify, and discuss local invertebrate…

Humphreys, Ioan; Lehane, Paula; Nigam, Yamni – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
We conducted a small pilot study examining the opinions of school teachers across five Welsh primary schools on the possibility of introducing grand challenges (such as antibacterial resistance), and concepts to help solve such challenges (such as the use of living maggots to help treat infected wounds) to pupils at a young age. Our…

Heinemann, Jack A.; Goldstien, Sharyn – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
Institution-crippling earthquakes limited teaching contact hours and range of teaching environments. New ways became needed to achieve the same learning outcomes in less time. Following that disaster, new methods based on active and test-enhanced learning were introduced into two undergraduate molecular biology courses. The courses had a mixture…

Lagares, Antonio, Jr.; Garavaglia, Matías Javier; Robledo, Natalia Belén; Valverde, Claudio; Goñi, Sandra Elizabeth; Lozano, Mario Enrique – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
Regulation is a key concept for understanding the dynamics of metabolism in bacteria. This report outlines a simple laboratory experiment aimed at studying a key form of regulation in bacterial metabolism, exemplifying how microbes switch the flux of carbon towards alternative metabolic fates as a function of nutrient availability and according to…

Chughtai, Amina; Tanweer, Afifa – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
Knowledge about research in medical and allied health fields is an integral part of professional development in patient care practice. However, completion of an exclusive research degree is not always feasible for clinicians. In such a scenario, short interactive educational sessions may serve to effectively enhance research knowledge in…

Prado, Borja Gómez; Puig, Blanca; Evagorou, María – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
This paper addresses an explorative case study on Spanish primary pre-service teachers' (PSTs) emotions about, and their interest in, insects. The study is part of a teachers' training programme on insects and the problem of the decline in pollinators conducted at the University of Santiago de Compostela, using scientific practice-based learning…

Costin, Gertrude-Emilia; Miller, Adele – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
The advancement of breakthrough concepts in science and their implementation in society can only be achieved by starting early with the education of new generations of scientists. The concept of 'Replacement, Reduction and Refinement' (the 3Rs) in regards to animal use was first described by Russell and Burch in 1959. The 3Rs have nowadays a…

Vergara Sandoval, Camilo Sebastián; López Simó, Victor; Couso Lagarón, Digna – Journal of Biological Education, 2022
This research aims to analyse the progression of 13-14 year-old students' ideas regarding the concept of energy transfer by means of heat in three biological mechanisms of thermal regulation. The outputs of 270 students, grouped in 77 cooperative groups, are analysed by comparing their explanations before and after conducting an experimental…

Villanueva, Xabier; Villarroel, José Domingo; Antón, Alvaro – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
This study examines the drawings that 178 young children carried out on two different occasions separated by a period of one year to explain their understanding of the plant world. The pictorial content of the drawings was analysed in accordance to the categories that previous research has proved to be useful when it comes to gaining an insight…

Seidelin, Lars; Albrechtsen, Thomas R. S.; Schöps, Katrin; Holmer, Marianne; Wahlberg, Magnus – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
The lack of interest among pre-university students to choose STEM subjects for their higher education is a heavily debated issue in many western-world countries. To boost Danish students' interest in biology, a study event on artificial reefs was introduced when teaching marine biology in lower secondary school and upper secondary school (student…

Andic, Branko; Cvjeticanin, Stanko; Maricic, Mirjana; Steševic, Danijela – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Although very rare, the existing research on the biological education of blind people indicates that teaching content is not fully in line with the sensory perception of that content by the blind. The aim of this study is to analyse the morphological details which the blind can register in multisensory plant research and to harmonise the…

Sherman, Tyler J.; Harvey, Tanner M.; Royse, Emily A.; Heim, Ashley B.; Smith, Cara F.; Romano, Alicia B.; King, Aspen E.; Lyons, David O.; Holt, Emily A. – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
Formative assessments have been shown to improve student success; however, the format in which these assessments are implemented has not been well researched. In this study, individual Anatomy and Physiology lab sections were administered formative assessments composed of either a projected (i.e. 'shared-display') quiz presentation or a…

Parsons, Alexandra E.; Heddy, Benjamin C.; Wilson, Scott N.; Williams, Leslie A.; Atkinson, Linda K.; Garn, Gregg A. – Journal of Biological Education, 2021
The purpose of this study was to explore the impact of authentically based instruction using the 5E model as the structure for lesson delivery on student emotions and the extent to which the students perceived that the teacher was facilitating mastery goals. Participants were 241 sophomore and junior biology students in three urban high schools in…
