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),…

Ruomei Gao; Judith Lloyd-Weinstein; Jody Cardinal – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Pedagogical approaches for supporting students' argumentative writing in science laboratories have not been fully established. This article examines the development of argumentative abilities in undergraduate students enrolled in chemistry laboratory courses that employed two teaching sequences: (i) an argumentative writing workshop for conceptual…

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…

Friesen, Rebecca; Cimetta, Adriana – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Increased sustainable access to undergraduate research opportunities, particularly for historically underrepresented populations, involves transforming departmental and institutional cultures, which is time-consuming and expensive. Competing university interests and tightening budgets necessitate finding effective and affordable ways to implement…

Jones, Elizabeth V.; Evans, Michael; Shepler, Carrie – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
In response to remote learning needs during the COVID-19 pandemic, introductory lecture and laboratory courses typically delivered fully in person were offered in a completely virtual format for the first time. Introductory laboratory courses are pivotal foundations for future discipline-specific learning and serve as prerequisites for a myriad of…

Goolsby-Cole, Cody; Bass, Sarah M.; Stanwyck, Liz; Leupen, Sarah; Carpenter, Tara S.; Hodges, Linda C. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
During the pandemic, the use of question pools for online testing was recommended to mitigate cheating, exposing multitudes of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) students across the globe to this practice. Yet instructors may be unfamiliar with the ways that seemingly small changes between questions in a pool can expose…

Grieger, Krystal; Leontyev, Alexey – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
This article describes the implementation of a student-generated open educational resource project into a majors' organic chemistry laboratory. This scaffolded semester-long project was organized into six phases and designed to promote the goals of teaching students about both green chemistry and real-life applications of the reactions covered in…

Queiroz, Salete Linhares; de Lima, Mikeas Silva; Lima dos Santos, Douglas Gomes – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
There has been an increase in the number of studies about educational scenarios aimed at promoting argumentation. Special attention is given to scenarios involving case studies. In this article, we report on the application of an interrupted case study to develop argumentation skills supported by information and communication technologies. The…

Corey Shanbrom; Michelle Norris; Caitlin Esgana; Matthew Krauel; Vincent Pigno; Jennifer Lundmark – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
The Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) program at Sacramento State was established in 2012 with one section supporting introductory chemistry. The program now serves 17 courses with high rates of students who receive a D or an F or withdraw (DFW) from the course in biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, and statistics; the program enrolls…

Schilling, Ellie; Sandman, Joy; Sait, Rida; Stich, April; Baryeh, Kwaku; Blankson, Gifty – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
A lateral flow assay was designed and optimized as an independent study project that aimed to develop an assay for the qualitative detection of troponin assay. Lateral flow assays (the classic example being a pregnancy test) have the advantage of being rapid, specific, and user-friendly. They are composed of an absorbent pad, a nitrocellulose…

Yuen, Pong Kau; Lau, Cheng Man Diana – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Redox reaction is a core concept in teaching and learning chemistry. This article explores a new method for balancing organic redox reactions that requires the balancing of both atoms and charges. The H+, O, H[subscript 2]O, and e- are used as balanced vehicles in two half reactions. A non-oxidation number approach can be applied to both molecular…

Tribble, Emma; Skariah, Rohan; Tran, Emily; Gulacar, Ozcan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
One of the major challenges of teaching science has been engaging students in discussions of concepts due to lack of perceived relevancy of topics to students' individual goals and societal issues. Science has been viewed as a set of abstract topics disconnected from the real world. To increase student motivation, self-efficacy, and interest in…

Hester, Susan D.; Elliott, Jordan M.; Navis, Lindsey K.; Hidalgo, L. Tori; Kim, Young Ae; Blowers, Paul; Elfring, Lisa K.; Lattimore, Karie L.; Talanquer, Vicente – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
The unplanned shift to online instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic challenged many instructors teaching large-enrollment courses to design learning environments that actively engaged all students. We looked at how one instructor used her instructional team--a group of student assistants with diverse, structured responsibilities--to adapt her…

dela Cerna, Mark Vincent – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
A rudimentary level of scientific literacy is necessary in the general public. At the undergraduate level, this literacy can be achieved through general education courses offered in areas of natural sciences. Over the past several years, practical courses have been developed to make the teaching of chemistry concepts in the laboratory more…
