Crandall, Philip G.; Clark, Jeffrey A.; Shoulders, Catherine W.; Johnson, Donald M. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
The 2011 passage of the Food Safety Modernization Act requires managers to teach and verify that employees have learned and are engaged in science-based food safety behaviors. Instructors using embedded assessments such as clickers can receive immediate feedback on how well learners understand what is being taught, allowing instructors to provide…

Bruna, Carola E.; Valenzuela, Nicole A.; Bruna, Daniela V.; Lozano-Rodríguez, Armando; Márquez, Carolina G. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2019
Problem-based learning using authentic material from the web was used to teach metabolism in a biochemistry course. In place of traditional lectures, students' analyzed health or nutrition articles from newspapers and magazines, which were debatable from a scientific point of view, following the principles of problem-based learning. A mixed method…

Ma, Sihui; Steger, Daniel G.; Doolittle, Peter E.; Stewart, Amanda C. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
Personal response systems, such as clickers, have been widely used to improve the effectiveness of teaching in various classroom settings. Although hand-held clicker response systems have been the subject of multiple prior studies, few studies have focused on the use of cell phone-based personal response system (CPPRS) specifically. This study…

McLeod, Poppy Lauretta; Orta-Ramirez, Alicia – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
The relationship between past teamwork and task-related experiences, attitude toward teamwork, collective efficacy, and task performance among undergraduates (N = 298) assigned to group projects (N = 48) in 2 different Food Science courses was examined. The results of survey data collected at the beginning and end of the projects showed that past…

Rosa, Clarissa H.; Antelo, Francine; Rosa, Gilber R. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2018
A 4-week mini-project is proposed for an experimental Physical Chemistry course applied in Food Science training. Activities include preparation of beet extract for the extraction of betanins and analysis of the kinetics of betanins in thermal degradation at three temperatures (60, 70, and 80 ºC). In addition to developing common laboratory…
