John Carr; Samantha Montano; Jordan Titera; Amy Hyman – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
A common course activity used by emergency management faculty is the screening of Hollywood disaster films to provide students with an opportunity to apply key disaster concepts they have learned about in lectures. When college courses were abruptly moved online in 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic began in the United States, emergency management…

Jessi L. Smith; Dustin B. Thoman – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
The science education community is deeply invested in growing the next generation of scientists. One way to do this is through evidence-based interventions that support the motivation and performance of students in introductory classes. The literature is replete with interdisciplinary research presenting such interventions. Unfortunately, the…

Anna F. DeJarnette; Stephanie M. Rollmann; Dieter F. Vanderelst; John E. Layne; Anna Hutchinson – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Transdisciplinary learning--where students develop and apply knowledge from multiple disciplines to solve open-ended problems--is necessary to prepare students for the most pressing real-world problems. Because transdisciplinary education often requires reimagining the content and design of undergraduate science courses, it can be a challenge for…

Robert J. C. McLean; Christa L. Bates; Sandy A. Watkins; Allana K. Welsh – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Undergraduate and graduate research opportunities represent a unique educational opportunity for students in that they can stimulate students' interest and potential careers in academic disciplines. Students who are single parents can also benefit from this opportunity, yet they are often overlooked by faculty members. In this article, we describe…

Breanne A. Kirsch; Theodore Bryan; David Hoferer – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
There is a growing need for college science faculty to teach a diverse group of learners. The Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework can be used to create inclusive learning materials and activities in the higher education science classroom. A UDL Academy introduced science faculty to the UDL framework, which led to them implementing UDL in…

Cook, Kristin; Wheeler, Winn – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Many teacher educator preparation programs do not provide opportunities for preservice teachers (PSTs) to experience and examine the use of popular fiction as a connection point to science teaching. This study explores a unit designed to support PSTs in learning and applying core concepts and processes of literacy and science by leveraging a…

Quinn, Ethan S.; Sylcott, Brian; Green, Nathaneal T.; Walker, Joi P.; Hughes, Robert M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Although undergraduate research experience has proven to have positive effects on student outcomes, such opportunities are not always widely available. Options can be especially limited for early-career engineering students who have limited research experience. One approach to addressing this issue is to partner engineering instructors with active…
