Boyd-Kimball, Debra; Miller, Keith R. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
Laboratory courses are often designed using step-by-step protocols which encourage students to conduct experiments without thinking about what they are doing or why they are doing it. Such course design limits the growth of our students as scientists and can make it more difficult for a student to transition to the expectations of a research…

Bhattacharyya, Gautam; Harris, Michael S. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2018
We report our research of seven pairs of students enrolled in the second semester of sophomore-level organic chemistry as they attempted to describe (in their own words) and draw, respectively, three electron-pushing diagrams of three-step reaction mechanisms. The tasks' objective was to accurately reproduce the diagrams based solely on the…

Borsos, Eva; Patocskai, Maria; Boric, Edita – Journal of Biological Education, 2018
Elementary school children spend less and less time outdoors in nature. In this way they will neither become familiar with plants and animals in their environment, nor will their environmental awareness develop. The solution for them would be to spend more quality time outdoors. In this work 170 teachers from Hungary and 170 teachers from Serbia…

Anyanwu, Raymond; Le Grange, Lesley; Beets, Peter – South African Journal of Education, 2015
One of the universal responses to tackling global climate change is teaching climate change concepts at all levels of formal education. This response requires, among other things, teachers who are fully literate about climate change science, so that they can explain the concepts underlying the causes, impacts and solutions of climate change as…

Kern, Anne Liu; Honwad, Sameer; McLain, Ed – Journal of Education and Training Studies, 2017
The science of climate change is a complex subject to teach. Teachers find climate change a challenging topic to teach due to a myriad of reasons. Gayford, 2010 describes some of the challenges teachers face while teaching climate change science as "first, the controversial nature of the topic; second, it does not relate well to the normal…

Harper, Lynsey R.; Downie, J. Roger; Muir, Martin; White, Stewart A. – Journal of Biological Education, 2017
The benefits of field courses for biological science students are well established, but field courses also have limitations: they are generally too brief to allow significant research and they are staff-designed and led, limiting the development of student autonomy. In contrast, the value of student-organised field expeditions has been little…
