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…

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…

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…

Jessica Stephenson Reaves; Anna Arias – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Equitable sensemaking allows for meaningful understanding of the big ideas of science and deeper engagement in science practices. Many nonscience majors, including elementary preservice teachers (PSTs), do not have opportunities to engage in equitable sensemaking within their secondary or college-level courses. An innovative cycle to support…

Ginger R. Fisher; Kevin W. Floyd; Jeffrey T. Olimpo – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Course-based undergraduate research experiences (CUREs) increase student engagement in scientific practices and empower students to generate novel findings. Previous studies have demonstrated that CUREs are more effective at enhancing students' motivations, attitudes, science identity development, and acquisition of science process skills than…

Matthew Lundquist; Ann Aguanno – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Moving to remote, online learning to meet health guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic posed a challenge for college science courses due to the interactive nature of laboratories. We developed and implemented a remote/in-person lab partner model where in-person students were paired with remote students in natural science courses during the…

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…

R. F. Malenda; S. Talbott; Scott Walck – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
In this article, we discuss Micro Assignment Guided Inquiry and Collaboration (MAGIC), an active learning method that draws on the merits of inquiry-based learning in STEM courses. We describe the use of Micro Assignments (MAs) consisting of a series of short, instructive guiding questions that scaffold the course material. Students work through…

Xiang, Lin; Srinivasan, Madhusudan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Integrating authentic research practices into introductory laboratory courses to prepare tomorrow's scientists has become increasingly prevalent over the past decade. However, an incomplete understanding of the nature of science (NOS) and authentic scientific inquiry (SI) precludes higher-level learning in undergraduate research experiences. In…

Cook, Kristin; Wheeler, Winn – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Many teacher educator preparation programs do not provide opportunities for preservice teachers (PSTs) to experience and examine the use of popular fiction as a connection point to science teaching. This study explores a unit designed to support PSTs in learning and applying core concepts and processes of literacy and science by leveraging a…

Bahng, E. J.; Hauptman, John; Lowery, Jennifer – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
This article describes and illustrates a physics course for first-year college students whose only knowledge of physics is that they do not like the subject. The physics content is driven entirely by what appears in the daily newspapers and generally covers most physics topics in a semester. This course was structured as a learning community that…

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…

Weigel, Emily G.; Angra, Aakanksha – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
In the information age, the acquisition of data literacy skills has become increasingly important for undergraduate student success, yet these skills are not emphasized in the lecture setting. Here we present a study to inspire educators to scaffold graph knowledge and interpretation into their classrooms. Specifically, we sought to understand how…

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…
