Shea, Lauren; Bégin, Chantale; Osovitz, Christopher; Prevost, Luanna – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Active-learning approaches have recently been broadly promoted on many campuses, but research is limited on how varying levels of interaction impact student success. The aim of this study was to compare student success between two sections of an introductory biology course that used classroom response systems (i.e., clickers), but were taught with…

Davies, Kevin W. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
In recent years, video-based lectures have been increasingly used in education as part of flipped classroom approaches, adult education, distance learning, and other applications. Though approaches in video-based lectures have been widely studied, less has been reported in the development of approaches to teach relevant technical skills, such as…

Romeo, Peggy; Posey, Frederick – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2013
Concerns about the misuse of assessment results in accountability related efforts led our biology faculty to take the initiative to develop our own assessment tool for one of our introductory biology courses. Our goal was to evaluate student achievement in the course and detect methods for improving our course. We developed a pre/posttest, which…

Grundmann, Oliver; Wielbo, Donna; Tebbett, Ian – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2010
Forensic science education has evolved as an interdisciplinary science that includes medicine, chemistry, biology, and criminal justice. Therefore, multiple paths can lead to a career in forensic science. A formal education usually requires the student to attend a college or university to obtain a bachelor's or master's degree. In many cases,…

Meers, Mason; Demers, Nora Egan; Savarese, Michael – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2003
In a course titled Scientific Process, we introduce undergraduates to the philosophy and practice of science and initiate them into a 2-year undergraduate research track. Engaging exercises and discussions help students understand the scientific process and ultimately produce a research proposal in grant application format. Students defend their…
