Wolfson, Adele J.; Armstrong, Justin – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
First-Year Seminars (FYS) offer a unique mode of introducing college students to new topics, research practices, and approaches to learning that they may not have been exposed to in high school. In this article, we outline the successes and challenges of team teaching a combined cultural anthropology and biochemistry course on the topic of blood,…

Bonney, Kevin M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Liberal arts programs encompass a range of academic disciplines, and their effectiveness relies not only on what these disciplines are, but also on how they are integrated. The natural sciences are one important component of liberal arts programs that may be difficult to assimilate with the rest of the curriculum. In this paper, the topic of…

Mutambuki, Jacinta; Frey, Regina; Leonard, Denise – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2020
Many institutions are preparing graduate students and postdoctorals (future faculty) for effective teaching in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Interestingly, little is known about beneficial features of teaching-development (TD) programs for future faculty after they transition into professoriate roles, and…

Farah, Kimberly S.; Montepare, Joann M. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2019
Our population is aging, calling for communities to be more age friendly and younger individuals to be more aware of aging issues that will impact their personal and professional lives. However, colleges provide few opportunities for students to prepare themselves for a more age-diverse world. Drawing on a new general education core curriculum…

Marshall, Jill A.; Banner, Jay L.; You, Hye Sun – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
This study investigated the interaction of disciplinary and interdisciplinary learning in a team-taught, first-year, interdisciplinary sustainability course. We surveyed (pre/post) both STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) and non-STEM majors (N = 241), assessing attitudes and content knowledge. Responses were analyzed using…

Dark, Marta L.; Hylton, Derrick J. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
This article describes a general education course offering, Physics and the Arts. During the development of this course, physics and arts faculty collaborated closely. We cover the usual physics phenomena for such a course--light, color, and sound--in addition to gravity, equilibrium, and spacetime. Goals of the course are to increase students'…

Gow, Joan-Beth; Carpino, Lisa A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Anorexia nervosa is a complex behavioral disorder with the highest risk of death of any psychological disorder. Between 15% and 20% of those suffering from anorexia die from complications that are attributed either directly or indirectly to self-starvation. Heritability for anorexia is around 0.5, meaning about 50% of the risk for anorexia is…

Ferrara, Michael; Talbot, Robert; Mason, Hillary; Wee, Bryan; Rorrer, Ronald; Jacobson, Michael; Gallagher, Doug – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The need for a more robust, well-trained STEM workforce is becoming increasingly acute in the United States, and there is a clear need to recruit and retain a larger and more diverse population of undergraduate STEM majors. Although numerous efforts to improve engagement and support in the traditional P-16 classroom have been implemented…

Rivera, Seema – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
Many undergraduate students will experience being taught by graduate teaching assistants (GTAs); therefore, focusing on GTA pedagogy is in the best interest of the students and university as a whole. Based on a Masters of Arts in Teaching program, a 5-week intensive summer training session for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics…

Forbes, Cory T.; Brozovic, Nicholas; Franz, Trenton E.; Lally, Diane E.; Petitt, Destini N. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2018
The most challenging global problems of our age involve coupled human--environmental systems within the Food-Energy-Water Nexus. The undergraduate students currently in our classrooms will be tomorrow's global citizens, each of whom must be prepared to understand and reason about these challenges and ultimately make decisions about them in a…

Welsh, Ashley J.; Shaw, Amber; Fox, Joanne A. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
This article explores how English-language learners' writing evolved during a first-year seminar in science course aimed at developing students' argumentation skills. We highlight how a science communications course was paired with a weekly academic English course in the context of a highly coordinated and enriched first-year experience program…

Cagle, Nicolette L. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2017
Historically, societies have relied on universities and colleges to provide a space for young citizens to experiment with and explore the innovative approaches needed to address contemporary problems. Yet today, many universities serve as diploma mills that succeed in getting students onto the job market, but fail to give those students tools for…
