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…

Deborah S. Fetter – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Although evidence exists that online education can result in comparable outcomes to the equivalent face-to-face (F2F) version of a course, there is still a dearth of literature. The objective of this pilot was to investigate differences in academic performance between students participating in the F2F versus online versions of Nutrition 10, an…

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…

William C. Beckerson; Jennifer Anderson; Siddhesh Kulkarni; John Perpich; Deborah R. Yoder-Himes – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Active learning is the new standard for teaching in higher education. As more faculty seek to expand their teaching practices by including active-learning activities that promote higher levels of learning, many are doing so in small doses by temporarily postponing traditional lectures in favor of group activities. While there is evidence…

Tracy Ediger; Olga Glebova; Michael Waterson; Matthew Nusnbaum – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
During the COVID-19 pandemic, it was suddenly necessary to shift college courses online. Many instructors without experience teaching online were faced with decisions about how to structure their courses and support students during the pandemic. In the three introductory STEM courses described in this article, instructors chose to include online…

Jessica M. Fautch – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
The sustained recruitment and retention of students in STEM majors is a national concern. Although the rate of attrition in these majors is comparable to other majors, the demand for trained scientists to enter the workforce with a baccalaureate degree is high. To enhance retention and support of STEM students from their first year until…

Qunxing Ding; Haiyan Zhu – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Retrieval practice has been proven effective in conceptual science learning, and retesting has been applied in retrieval practice and has been shown to lead to significant improvements in learning outcomes. In this study, retesting was employed in an online microbiology course to evaluate the attitudes and behaviors of college students about this…

Giles, Ingelise; Cook, Nicole; Hazari, Zahra; Fernandez, Maria; Kramer, Laird – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
In response to the demand for more STEM-certified teachers, identity has emerged as a theoretical lens for examining how candidates can be recruited into and retained in the teaching profession. This study explores the intersection between teaching identity and disciplinary identity as they relate to the development of a disciplinary teaching…

Wasendorf, Chloe; McCombs, Audrey; Boury, Nancy – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Most introductory courses are held in large lecture halls, with students typically sitting in either the front, middle, or back of the classroom. In a mixed-methods study of student attendance, performance, and seat choice, we found that students who chose to sit behind their peers performed nearly a full grade level worse than their peers who sat…

Dhimitruka, Ilirian; Surendran, Geetha – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Project-based learning (PBL) research is shown to improve students' higher-order thinking skills. In this article, we describe an adaptation of the PBL model that is suitable for colleges with limited science, technology, engineering, and mathematics research capabilities. Our objective was to design a meaningful research project requiring minimal…

Faulconer, Emily; Griffith, John – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Feedback best practices support timely, high-quality feedback with application opportunity. Multiple attempts on assessments support learning gains. A learning management system can be used to automatically provide feedback for application on a future assessment attempt. Current research has not thoroughly investigated the student impacts or…

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…

Man-Yin Tsang; Lisa Tutty; Carl-Georg Bank – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Quantitative reasoning, although included in most science courses, can be challenging to teach. In this article, we explore whether cooperative learning may help instructors teach quantitative reasoning and enhance students' understanding and learning experience. Our lesson was taught in a large introductory geoscience course. The lesson required…

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…

Alison Singer; Caitlin Kirby; Eleanor Rappolee – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Facts about climate change are often ineffective in impacting people's climate change beliefs or environmentally related behaviors. Multiple theories of environmental behavior use norms to foster behavior change. Science fiction writers may also attempt to sway individuals' perceptions of climate change through imaginings of a future affected by…
