Weston, Emma; Foster, Tim; Crilly, Jim; Mossop, Liz – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
Food science-based graduates are a significant proportion of the United Kingdom (UK) food and drink industry's workforce. Aside from technical standards, there is no cohesive competency framework to support key stakeholders; employers, students, and degree providers. Clarity of desirable competencies for the range of graduate opportunities…

Mshayisa, Vusi Vincent – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
In higher education, there are calls to incorporate active learning experiences that place the student at the center of learning, rather than encouraging students to be passive listeners. For students to have a deeper and more meaningful learning experience, educators can use an active learning approach. This approach attempts to engage students…

Weston, Emma; Benlloch-Tinoco, Maria; Mossop, Liz; McCullough, Fiona; Foster, Tim – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
It is fundamental that students are able to identity where they have developed specific professional competencies during their study. This ensures students can not only articulate their competencies well in job applications and assessments but also draw on their experiences for use in the workplace. The aim of study was to ascertain if…

Mendes, Clarion; Bohn, Dawn M. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
At the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC), cross-campus collaborations are strongly encouraged; however, due to the vast size of the university, opportunities for student collaboration commonly rely on serendipitous events--being at the right place at the right time. On a cold day in February 2017, the required serendipity befell…

Dangkulwanich, Manchuta; Charaslertrangsi, Tumnoon – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
A traditional classroom usually focuses on concepts from a specific discipline. However, solving complex real-world problems requires integration and application of knowledge from various fields. Here, we describe a 4-hr undergraduate-level laboratory exercise that utilizes concepts of extraction and biological property, bridging between chemistry…

Mohr, Alex E.; Mayra, Selicia T.; Gnant, Lindsay; Basile, Anthony J.; Sweazea, Karen L. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
The objective of this study was to assess knowledge and attitudes of nutrition and dietetic college students regarding food science and technology. It was designed as a cross-sectional survey using a self-administered online questionnaire, constructed by a formative research process, including accredited dietetics programs in the United States and…

Heermann, Melanie L.; Getty, Kelly J. K.; Yucel, Umut – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
Hands-on learning is a proven method of improving students' critical thinking skills. Undergraduate research projects are encouraged to help students develop research and laboratory skills. If properly designed and implemented, research opportunities can be embedded in existing student coursework, which increases the number of students who can…

Barrett, Tressie E.; Feng, Yaohua; Wang, Hui-Hui – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
High school students' prevalence as food-service industry employees and their lack of food safety knowledge make them prime candidates for food safety education. The researchers developed a food-safety-focused curriculum for high school students aligned with Indiana Academic Standards for Agriculture, Advanced Life Science: Food. The curriculum…

Calvert, Ryan D.; Crawford, Ciera R.; Running, Cordelia A. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
Properly made solutions are critical to the scientific method. However, in various laboratories and collaborative environments, we have noticed a lack of proper technique for making solutions. Instead of measuring the moles of solute then filling up to the needed volume with solvent, we observed many individuals would measure the moles of solute…

Albiol Tapia, Marta; Lee, Soo-Yeun – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
The Institute of Food Technologists' (IFT) success skills highlight the importance of developing professional skills in the food science curriculum. On the other hand, many students in higher education report that the public school system feels disconnected and unrelated to their future. In this context, this study aimed to evaluate student's…

Temen, Tarah; Jaramillo Cherrez, Nadia; Coleman, Shannon – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
Understanding safe food practice is important for home-based food operators to prevent foodborne illness. Earlier work has found that home-based food operators lack food safety knowledge and may benefit from training that is specifically tailored to their needs. Unfortunately, home-based food operators may be deterred from enrolling in traditional…

Santau, Alexandra O.; MacDonald, Ruth S.; Roberts, Robert R. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
IFT Approval of undergraduate food science and technology programs has continued to evolve since its inception in the 1960s. This report provides rationale and outlines key changes in the latest revisions of the IFT Approval Guidelines that were approved by the IFT Board of Directors in 2018. The 2018 Guidelines retained the previously established…

Datta, Ashim K.; Ukidwe, Mayuri S.; Way, David G. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2020
Importance of online learning has become more critical with the advent of a global pandemic. Effective online learning requires design characteristics that support learning that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries. The example of educational delivery of food safety encompasses multiple disciplines to prepare students for real-world…

Stringer, Elizabeth I.; Hendrix, Jasmine D.; Swortzel, Kirk A.; Williams, J. Byron; Schilling, M. Wes – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Historically, high school chemistry has been the predominate venue for the introduction of food science curriculum to students. With the current decline in chemistry as a required course for graduation, the possibility of exposure to food science in high school could equally decline. The purpose of this research was to determine if high school…

Zimmerman, Tahl; Ibrahim, Mariama; Gyawali, Rabin; Ibrahim, Salam A. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
This laboratory activity was designed to strengthen our Food and Nutritional Science students' knowledge of biochemistry concepts and the relationship between these concepts and food science. The result was a laboratory experience in which biochemistry concepts are taught using yogurt as a model, in order to link those concepts to food safety, an…
