Tsybulsky, Dina; Dodick, Jeff; Camhi, Jeff – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
In this study we designed, implemented, and evaluated an outreach programme for high-school biology students rooted in the 'science as inquiry' approach. Accordingly, students learn about science from experts in the field, as well as through in-class exposure to the history and philosophy of science. Our sample consisted of 11th graders (n = 497),…

Tal, Tali; Tsaushu, Masha – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Our interpretative study that was carried out in a science and engineering oriented university examined the ways students in an introductory biology course perceived their learning in the course that was substantially changed to allow student-centered learning. The instructional change was framed by the view of learning as a sociocultural activity…

Liu, Ning; Xu, Zheng – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Despite the importance of pedagogical content knowledge (PCK) in practical teaching and the inconsistency of teacher quality in different regions in China, there is little empirical evidence for specific differences in teachers' PCK in different districts in China. This study attempted to address this gap through analysis of practical teaching…

Scott, Pamela H.; Veitch, Nicola J.; Gadegaard, Helen; Mughal, Muhammad; Norman, Gethin; Welsh, Michelle – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Laboratories are recognised as central in science education, allowing students to consolidate knowledge and master practical skills, however, their effectiveness has been questioned. Whilst laboratory practicals are useful for students' learning of basic procedures, they have been shown to be less effective for developing conceptual understanding…

Patrick, Patricia; Matteson, Shirley – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
"Science and Children" and "Science Scope" are peer-reviewed science practitioner journals that publish articles for science educators who teach children of ages 5-10 years and 10-13 years, respectively. As such, these articles are a reflection of the science concepts that are being communicated to science educators. This…

Leyrer-Jackson, Jonna M.; Wilson, Ashley K. – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Recent studies have been conducted in regards to the use of social- media by students and how it can impact his/her academic performance. However, much of this research has been focused on how to use social-media websites in the classroom to facilitate student learning. Therefore, we aimed to address how the use of social-media can be either…

Vlaardingerbroek, Barend – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Teaching students about human reproduction is becoming increasingly daunting as assisted reproduction technologies challenge scientific, social and legal perceptions of parenthood. Mitochondrial replacement in particular forces us to re-examine established paradigms not only in the context of human reproduction but also with regard to the way in…

Luttikhuizen, Pieternella C. – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Teaching biological evolution can be difficult on a number of levels, be it student confusion arising from prior conceptions and the controversy surrounding evolution, or simply because the material is complex. Games and simulations can help to convey complex topics and also to increase variety in teaching methods. Here I describe a card game that…

Špernjak, Andreja; Šorgo, Andrej – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
This paper reports on the contribution to biological knowledge of three different laboratory technologies and also endeavours to discover which technology students prefer the most. To examine differences in knowledge gained and learners' preferences for different technologies in biology laboratory work, we prepared three variants (triplets) of…

Hotaling, Scott; Slabach, Brittany L.; Weisrock, David W. – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
The recent increase in accessibility and scale of genetic data available through next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology has transformed biological inquiry. As a direct result, the application and analysis of NGS data has quickly become an important skill for future scientists. However, the steep learning curve for applying NGS technology to…

Kim, Heung-Tae; Kim, Jae Geun; Kim, Chankook – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
We investigated emotional intimacy with nature and life, and intellectual interest in life among South Korean pre-service teachers (N = 114) training in biology education, analysing the differences between these two constructs as well as their relationship to environmental behaviour and sensitivity. In addition, differences in the respondents'…

Cofré, Hernán L.; Santibáñez, David P.; Jiménez, Juan P.; Spotorno, Angel; Carmona, Francisca; Navarrete, Kasandra; Vergara, Claudia A. – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
The results of studies of the nature of science (NOS) as a factor that enhances students' understanding of evolution have been inconclusive. Therefore, the main purpose of this study was to test the role of NOS instruction in enhancing students' learning about evolution. We used a quasi-experimental design with pre- and post-tests to investigate…

van Weelie, Daan; Boersma, Kerst – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
The finding that biodiversity is a concept with different context-specific meanings has implications for its conceptual development when students are required to apply it in a diversity of contexts. An approach that may overcome these implications is that students learn to recontextualise one meaning to another. Since no empirical studies were…

Glackin, Melissa; Harrison, Christine – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Teachers conceptualise inquiry learning in science learning differently. This is particularly evident when teachers are introduced to inquiry pedagogy within a new context. This exploratory study draws on semi-structured interviews conducted with eight pre-service secondary biology teachers following a day visit with university tutors to the Royal…

Popovic, Marko – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
All living structures, from archaea to human, are open thermodynamic systems analysed through nonequilibrium thermodynamics. Nonequilibrium thermodynamics is a field with important applications to life sciences, which is very often left out of life science courses. A three-step method is suggested to make an easy introduction of nonequilibrium…
