Ivetta Abramyan; Maria Oehler; Lyn Noble; Christopher Lee; Amanda Sartor – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
This study was conducted to determine if embedding effective study strategies in a course would result in an increased use of these strategies and, therefore, increase success and retention in introductory-level science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) courses. An interdisciplinary team of STEM faculty members created study strategies…

Andrew Karatjas – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Student self-assessment surveys were utilized to look at student study habits in several areas. Both self-reported study time and study methods were explored. Surveys were given to students after they received their graded exams. In a comparison with the federal definition for a credit hour (2 hours outside of class for each hour spent in class),…

Melanie Trecek-King; John Cook – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Inoculation theory, which applies the biological concept of vaccination to misinformation, provides a range of ways to effectively build resilience against misinformation. In this article, we define and organize the various types of inoculation, which includes three delivery mechanisms that can be useful in the classroom--passive, active, and…

Luis Gonz├ílez-Urbina; Andrew Sanfratello – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
In this article, we compare the peculiarities of emergency remote teaching (ERT) in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic with in-person and traditional online teaching. A literature review precedes an empirical case study performed by the lead author during his experiences with ERT. The aim of the study was to create a classroom focused on student…

Douglas Allchin; Carl T. Bergstrom; Jonathan Osborne – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Misinformation and disinformation about science have reached alarming levels. Here, we summarize a recent expert report, "Science Education in an Age of Misinformation," that outlines what science education can do to address this problem and, given the urgency, has to do. We highlight the significance of teaching how the social practices…

Melinda Box; Maria Gallardo-Williams; Ciana Paye – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Clear, detailed instructional procedures have an important role to play in laboratory teaching to not only produce consistent results but also ensure safe practices. Student success in using these procedures can be strengthened through the use of video resources. However, not all video content will have the same impact. Videos must have sufficient…

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…

Justin Shaffer; Arik Ringsby – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
High structure courses ask students to be active participants in the learning process with preclass content acquisition and assessment, in-class active-learning exercises, and after-class review assignments. Although faculty may suggest certain strategies for success in high structure courses, it is unknown what students find valuable and what…

Shem Unger; Mark Rollins; Nicole Barrios – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Postsecondary science faculty face challenges in balancing the engagement of undergraduates and concomitantly ensuring they gain and retain knowledge, either in standard lectures or labs as well as in outdoor activities. Designing on-campus trails with interpretive signs may provide a unique avenue to inform students across majors of local…

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…

Daniel Zarate; Kathleen Sheahan; Jingchun Li – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Active learning provides students with meaningful and introspective roles in education. However, active learning is difficult to achieve in online class settings, particularly for biology laboratories initially designed to offer direct interactions with live organisms. During the COVID-19 pandemic, a transition to online learning was required in…

Valerie Nazzaro; Jen Rose; Lisa Dierker; Courtney Merrick; Robin Donatello – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
The COVID-19 pandemic altered course delivery in higher education at many universities. This article evaluates the differences between student experiences in the fall 2019 semester (pre-pandemic) and those during the fall 2020 semester (pandemic) within a multidisciplinary, project-based introductory statistics course. Results indicated that there…

Cameron J. Hill; Anthony P. Barrasso; Kathryn E. Spilios – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
The Learning Assistant (LA) program is a near-peer teaching model with three key components: (i) reevaluation of curriculum and lesson design to incorporate undergraduate LAs as a central part of the course; (ii) a seminar attended by first-time LAs, where they learn about education theory; and (iii) weekly meetings in which LAs and course…
