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…

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…

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…

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…

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…

Michael Giamellaro; Kari O'Connell; Kelly Riedinger – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Undergraduate field courses are important learning experiences in many of the natural sciences, but they are not accessible to many students. Virtual field experiences (VFEs) have been evolving as a plausible alternative. A Delphi study, a method to seek systematic and iterative ideation from experts in a discipline, was conducted to synthesize…

Stefany M. Sit; Laura Zeller – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Creating authentic science assessments that engage students in conceptual understanding and provide evidence of their learning is challenging. Student-centered instruction and assessments provide an opportunity to build student agency and foster positive student relations with science. This qualitative work showcases assessments that focus on…

E. Austin Leone; Donald P. French – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
The communication of scientific findings often concludes the research experience, but few science programs include explicit undergraduate curricula for practicing oral science communication. While course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) can provide opportunities for students to practice science communication, few studies describe…

Minjoon Kouh – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
An introductory physics course may be run like a video game, where students have an almost unlimited number of attempts to demonstrate their competencies through a sequence of zero-penalty assessments until the end of a semester. Each checkpoint is conducted as a 10-minute, one-on-one oral interview with the instructor, and students are not…

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…

Velázquez Rivera, Lizzette M.; Quiñones Pérez, Isaris R. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
This article describes how preservice elementary teachers learn about the nature of science and develop scientific literacy through a collaborative project that prepares them to design meaningful learning experiences for students. The Life's Replica Project was an effort between a college professor and an elementary school teacher to facilitate…

Murry, Adam T.; Yuan, Nan; Atkinson, Dean – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Many undergraduates use research internships to gain experience for graduate school. Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) programs involve heavy research and lab work duties, for which students are often unprepared and lack opportunities for practice. Evidence supports Undergraduate Research Experience (URE) programs' ability…

Hou, By Yi; Verkade, Heather; van Driel, Jan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
The ability to read, understand, and interpret primary scientific literature is an essential skill for undergraduate students in science. This study aimed to provide a detailed understanding of how second- and third-year undergraduate students in a biochemistry and molecular biology major at the University of Melbourne in Australia feel about…
