Colin Harrison; Clarke Britton; Hannah Shin; Yassin Watson – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Online laboratories can be an effective way to introduce students to lab concepts while providing flexibility, increased access, and reduced costs. However, online labs might lack the authentic research experience that can be gained by doing hands-on lab work. This study explores student perceptions of an online, inquiry-based introductory biology…

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…

Mason C. McNair; Chelsea M. Sexton; Mark Zenoble – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
Following the switch to remote online teaching in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the plant taxonomy course at the University of Georgia (UGA) switched to iNaturalist for the specimen collection portion of the course requirements. Building off extant rubrics, the instructors designed project guidelines for a fully online plant collection…

Waters, David; Jilakara, Rahul – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2023
This study investigates the relationship between study methods and exam performance in introductory physics courses. Data were collected over 3 years through surveys to examine students' study habits, perceived effectiveness of techniques, and the correlation between time allocation and exam grades. Results indicate that high-achieving students…

Reid, Joshua W.; Weigel, Emily G. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Recent reform efforts in postsecondary science teaching have called for shifts in instructional methods to include more evidence-based instructional practices. However, a myriad of factors play a role in whether an instructor adopts these more student-centered methods. One such factor is teaching perspective. In this study, we explored the…

Yuen, Pong Kau; Lau, Cheng Man Diana – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Redox reaction is a core concept in teaching and learning chemistry. This article explores a new method for balancing organic redox reactions that requires the balancing of both atoms and charges. The H+, O, H[subscript 2]O, and e- are used as balanced vehicles in two half reactions. A non-oxidation number approach can be applied to both molecular…

Maries, Alexandru; Whitcomb, Kyle; Singh, Chandralekha – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Efforts to promote equity and inclusion using evidence-based approaches are vital to correcting long-standing societal inequities that have disadvantaged women and discouraged them from pursuing studies, including in many STEM disciplines. We used 10 years of institutional data from a large public university to investigate the grade point average…

Tribble, Emma; Skariah, Rohan; Tran, Emily; Gulacar, Ozcan – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
One of the major challenges of teaching science has been engaging students in discussions of concepts due to lack of perceived relevancy of topics to students' individual goals and societal issues. Science has been viewed as a set of abstract topics disconnected from the real world. To increase student motivation, self-efficacy, and interest in…

Hester, Susan D.; Elliott, Jordan M.; Navis, Lindsey K.; Hidalgo, L. Tori; Kim, Young Ae; Blowers, Paul; Elfring, Lisa K.; Lattimore, Karie L.; Talanquer, Vicente – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
The unplanned shift to online instruction due to the COVID-19 pandemic challenged many instructors teaching large-enrollment courses to design learning environments that actively engaged all students. We looked at how one instructor used her instructional team--a group of student assistants with diverse, structured responsibilities--to adapt her…

Arif, Suchinta; Massey, Melanie Duc Bo – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Many graduate students spend a part of their time teaching at the university level. While there is an abundance of advice from older, more established faculty, the perspective and teaching styles of graduate students are lacking in the literature. After talking with several graduate student teachers across different universities, we identified…

Thieu, Monica Kim Ngan; Foo, John C.; Marvin, Caroline B. – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
People's ability to evaluate scientific research is important to dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic. STEM educators can use the pandemic to frame instruction of scientific literacy and critical-thinking skills. In a small pilot introductory psychology course taught online in spring 2021, we created jigsaw-style modules organized around real-world…

Kakarougkas, Andreas; Abdellatif, Reham – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Teaching modalities such as Flipped Classroom Approach (FCA) are becoming increasingly popular in higher education. FCA requires that instructional content is completed outside the classroom, thus allowing active-learning activities to take place in class. In this article, we investigate the application of this approach to an undergraduate…

Tarapore, Eric; Shaffer, Justin Franklin; Atwood, Scott – Journal of College Science Teaching, 2022
Online engagement, or the use of online supplementary instruction and assessment, in high-structure courses is gaining popularity as a useful tool to facilitate instruction, assignments, and examinations. High-structure courses, which include regular pre- and post-class assessments and significant active learning during class, have been shown to…
