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…

Mariana Alvidrez; Christopher Villa; Elaine M. Hampton – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
As ethical issues involving computer technologies and social media become more common, there is increasing interest in what role ethics should play in computer science education. As a result, computer science departments worldwide have ramped up their efforts to examine relevant ethical issues in undergraduate computer science classes to prepare…

Daniel Zarate; Kathleen Sheahan; Jingchun Li – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Active learning provides students with meaningful and introspective roles in education. However, active learning is difficult to achieve in online class settings, particularly for biology laboratories initially designed to offer direct interactions with live organisms. During the COVID-19 pandemic, a transition to online learning was required in…

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…

Carolyn Hoessler; Ryan Banow; Harold Bull – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
To further teaching and learning, there has been a push to engage faculty to pursue research on teaching. With the recognition that science research often is done by teams, we sought to create a research-cluster approach to support faculty engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning (SoTL). This article describes a faculty-focused process…

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…

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…

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…

Smith, Cody; Menon, Deepika; Wierzbicki, Annette; Dauer, Jenny – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Undergraduate and graduate teaching assistants (TAs) are tasked with instructing undergraduate courses with little to no professional development (PD). To better develop PD opportunities, it is important to understand the benefits of improving TAs' self-efficacy and the stressors associated with their roles. This study investigated how stress…

Patricia Morrell; Adele Schepige – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
The purposes of this study were to examine preservice elementary teachers' conception of the water cycle; determine if participating in a conceptual change-based role-play alters these conceptions; and ascertain if any conceptual change brought about by the intervention is lasting. We found that most of our students held naive conceptions of the…

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…

Mark H. Newton – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
A perennial goal of science educators is to develop functional scientific literacy in their students, especially those who will not become professional scientists. This article provides an example of implementing a socioscientific issues approach in an undergraduate environmental science course that enables students to develop the knowledge,…

Alex T. St. Louis; Hayat Hokayem – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
This qualitative study compares the views about nature of science (NOS) between students enrolled in a traditional lecture and laboratory course and students in an inquiry-based class to the view of the scientists who taught the course. We administered the Views of Nature of Science Form C (VNOS-C) to identify students' views after partaking in…

David C. Owens; Noah P. Sheridan; Amanda L. Townley – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Although argumentation is a critical historical component of scientific literacy, the recent coronavirus pandemic and associated issues have highlighted the importance of argumentation in science practice. Argumentation that aligns with functional scientific literacy requires gathering evidence and reasoning to support or refute claims related to…
