Kwon, Seung-Hyuk; Lee, Yeong-Ji; Kwon, Yong-Ju – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
This paper presents an active learning approach that focuses on practical investigation of the ecosystem of tidal flats using 3D modeling and printing for biology students in order to enhance understanding of natural selection. The learning approach for the study followed a 5-step procedure: i) learning about 3D modeling and printing, ii)…

Larouche, Olivier; Jolicoeur, Ludovic; Calosi, Piero – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Changes in environmental conditions can have a profound impact on organismal processes. For aquatic organisms, changes in dissolved oxygen concentration can have major repercussions, notably for physiological processes that have high long-term energetic costs and are more likely to rely on aerobic metabolic pathways. Here we propose a simple…

Fanta, Daniela; Braeutigam, Julia; Riess, Werner – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Developing students' systems thinking is an often-posed demand in education for sustainable development (ESD) and science literacy. Several studies have shown that systems thinking can be fostered in students of different education levels. Therefore, science teachers who are required to teach ESD-relevant topics should be proficient in systems…

Hiltunen, Matti; Kärkkäinen, Sirpa; Keinonen, Tuula – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Inquiry-based learning has generally accepted by scholars as a most effective teaching approach in biology education. The talk during inquiry-based teaching needs to be practiced. There is less evidence how student teachers talk with students during their inquiry-based biology instruction. This knowledge is needed in supporting student teachers to…

Meyerhöffer, Nina; Dreesmann, Daniel C. – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
This paper presents an instructional model to incorporate English-language communication between international practicing scientists and English learners into secondary science lessons. The aim was to identify a method that lets pupils practice English as the language of science and that elicits positive affective attitudes in the form of…

Leatherman, Judith L.; Cleveland, Lacy M. – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
The flipped classroom is a teaching innovation in which instructional content is delivered out of the classroom, often via videos, and the class period is used for application of the course material. While the popularity of the flipped classroom is growing exponentially, its benefits have not been extensively studied. In this study we compared…

Aguilera, David; Perales-Palacios, Francisco Javier – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
The investigation has demonstrated that the science teaching strategy employed moderates the interest of students in learning the subject, along with academic achievement. In this article we used a mixed method design in a sample of secondary education students (n = 57) to examine the effect of the participative teaching approach in attitudes…

Bhushan, Gupta Deepti – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
This article describes a ten week long laboratory exercise designed for undergraduate students aimed at enhancing their understanding of physiological and biochemical responses of plants under dehydration stress. Hypothesis was built around previous reports which suggested that exogenous application of certain elicitors leads to transient…

Benhadi-Marín, Jacinto; Pereira, José Alberto; Sousa, José Paulo; Santos, Sónia A. P. – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Individual based models (IBMs) are up-to-date tools both in research and educational areas. Here we introduce an IBM built on NetLogo platform that simulates a top-down trophic cascade controlled by the pressure exerted by two model predators (web-building spiders and ground runner spiders) on a model pest (the olive fruit fly) within a…

Asshoff, Roman; Düsing, Katharina; Winkelmann, Tamara; Hammann, Marcus – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Students often have misconceptions about terrestrial carbon flows and there is a lack of coherence in students' explanations regarding the different levels of biological organisation at which these processes occur. In this study, problem-based teaching materials on the topic of terrestrial carbon flows were developed and tested with 15 students…

Wildan, Ardan; Cheong, Brandon Huey-Ping; Xiao, Kevin; Liew, Oi Wah; Ng, Tuck Wah – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
The provision of hands-on wet lab training for students to perform micro-organism proliferation experiments is useful for experiential skills development. However, the risk of laboratory-acquired infections arising from inadvertent ingestion, inhalation or skin penetration of these micro-organisms presents a safety concern. To obviate this risk,…

Li, Bing; Jia, Xiaotao; Chi, Yuxia; Liu, Xinli; Jia, Baolei – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Experimental courses for undergraduate students majoring in biochemistry or related subjects often do not provide students with systematic and research-based experiences. To help students develop abilities related to laboratory techniques, data analysis, and systematic thought in biology, we performed an exploratory program that employs…

Tsunekage, Toshi; Bishop, Christopher R.; Long, Casey M.; Levin, Iris I. – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Information literacy is an essential skill for biologists; however, most biology curricula do not intentionally integrate information literacy into classroom and laboratory exercises. There is evidence that developing information literacy skills in undergraduates improves their research skills, writing, and GPAs. Our objective was to integrate…

Mouton, Marnel – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
First-year undergraduate curricula and their delivery should assist students in the transition from previous learning experiences to learning in higher education. However, the so-called articulation gap or discontinuity between secondary and higher education has been identified as a key structural curriculum problem for first-year success in South…

Eley, Cv; Weston-Price, S.; Young, V. l.; Hoekstra, B.; Gadhia, T.; Muirhead, V.; Robinson, L.; Pine, C.; McNulty, Cam – Journal of Biological Education, 2020
Introduction: Tooth decay is the most common reason for non-emergency hospital admissions in 5-9 year olds. As such, it is included in the England school curriculum at 8-9 years to facilitate improved oral hygiene and prevent tooth decay. Aim: Measure student and teacher baseline oral hygiene knowledge; determine effect of the e-Bug oral hygiene…
