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…

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…

Ruomei Gao; Judith Lloyd-Weinstein; Jody Cardinal – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Pedagogical approaches for supporting students' argumentative writing in science laboratories have not been fully established. This article examines the development of argumentative abilities in undergraduate students enrolled in chemistry laboratory courses that employed two teaching sequences: (i) an argumentative writing workshop for conceptual…

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…

Hongmei Zhang; Chad Marchong; Yanju Li – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Traditional exam reviews are passive and face many challenges to prepare students for exams. In this study, we proposed the Tab-Meta Key model, which emphasizes five major factors (time, accountability, big picture, key concepts, and metacognition) and is supported by prior literature. We also designed an exam review based on this model. This exam…

Gabriella Fluhler-Thornburg; John McKillip – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Laboratory learning in the life sciences is historically centered around following recipe-like instructions to complete activities with defined outcomes. The American Association for the Advancement of Science's "Vision and Change" report has called for a change in science teaching. The report emphasizes the importance of providing…

The coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak mandated a rapid transition to online classes with little warning. Previous literature studying the effects of this sudden shift demonstrated enormous impacts on instructors and students. However, the details concerning science instructor assessment choices during this time are less clear. We asked biology…

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…

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…

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…

Stephanie Jeffries – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2024
Most introductory courses in environmental science are large, lecture-style general education classes. North Carolina State University's ES 100 is no exception, enrolling between 200 and 300 students and holding class meetings in the campus cinema. A key underlying learning objective, however, is to teach students that science is the pathway to…

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…
