Smith, Claire F.; Border, Scott – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Anatomy, has in history, been linked to helpful ways to remember structures, branches of nerves, structures passing through foramina, etc. Scalp is even a mnemonic in itself (Skin, Connective tissue, Aponeurosis, Loose areolar tissue, Pericranium). There has been concern by some educators that using mnemonics or rhymes promotes a surface approach…

Thompson, Kristjan L.; Gendreau, Julian L.; Strickling, Jarred E.; Young, Henry E. – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Mercer University School of Medicine utilizes a problem-based learning (PBL) curriculum for educating medical students in the basic clinical sciences. In 2014, an adjustment was piloted that enabled PBL cases to align with their corresponding cadaver dissection that reviewed the content of anatomy contained in the PBL cases. Faculty had the option…

Erdmann, Robert M.; Stains, Marilyne – CBE - Life Sciences Education, 2019
Classroom observation protocols can provide an exceedingly rich form of data. However, this is a double-edged sword, as researchers often struggle to take full advantage of the detailed data outputs. In this essay, we introduce a new approach to the analysis of classroom observation data, termed "classroom as genome" (CAG). We illustrate…

Laakkonen, Juha; Muukkonen, Hanni – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
Collaborative learning has been used in anatomy courses to support students' learning of challenging topics but the success of group work depends significantly on the students' ability to communicate in a professional manner. Veterinary students' experiences with tasks related to collaborative learning and professional conduct were studied by…

Champney, Thomas H.; Hildebrandt, Sabine; Gareth Jones, D.; Winkelmann, Andreas – Anatomical Sciences Education, 2019
With the ongoing and expanding use of willed bodies in medical education and research, there has been a concomitant rise in the need for willed bodies and an increase in the means of supplying these bodies. A relatively recent development to enlarge this supply has been the growth of for-profit willed body companies ("body brokers") in…

Fuselier, Linda C.; Jackson, J. Kasi; Stoiko, Rachel – Science Education, 2016
The nature of science (NOS) as described by education scholars is a critical component of scientific literacy and includes both rational and social aspects taught best in an explicit and reflective manner. NOS is frequently tied to a critical contextual empiricism (CCE) framework for knowledge production. Central to CCE is that objectivity is…

Hayes, Kathryn N.; Trexler, Cary J. – Science Education, 2016
Many resources have been committed to research on science teaching pedagogies, resulting in a robust understanding of best instructional practices. Yet, exposure to excellent science instruction in elementary school is haphazard at best and often inequitable. Although the research community has attended to the role of teacher traits, such as…

Stieff, Mike; Scopelitis, Stephanie; Lira, Matthew E.; DeSutter, Dane – Science Education, 2016
Representational competence is a primary contributor to student learning in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) disciplines and an optimal target for instruction at all educational levels. We describe the design and implementation of a learning activity that uses concrete models to improve students' representational competence and…

Schizas, Dimitrios; Psillos, Dimitris; Stamou, George – Science Education, 2016
The present essay examines the emerging issue of domain-general versus domain-specific nature of science (NOS) understandings from a perspective that illuminates the value of domain-specific philosophies of science for the growth and development of the NOS educational field. Under the assumption that individual sciences do have their own…

Sjöström, Jesper; Eilks, Ingo; Zuin, Vânia G. – Science & Education, 2016
The modern world can be described as a globalized risk society. It is characterized by increasing complexity, unpredictable consequences of techno-scientific innovations and production, and its environmental consequences. Therefore, chemistry, just like many other knowledge areas, is in an ongoing process of "environmentalization." For…

Dagher, Zoubeida R.; Erduran, Sibel – Science & Education, 2016
Two fundamental questions about science are relevant for science educators: (a) What is the nature of science? and (b) what aspects of nature of science should be taught and learned? They are fundamental because they pertain to how science gets to be framed as a school subject and determines what aspects of it are worthy of inclusion in school…

Rosenhouse, Jason – Science & Education, 2016
The teaching of evolution in American high schools has long been a source of controversy. The past decade has seen an important shift in the rhetoric of anti-evolutionists, toward arguments of a strongly mathematical character. These mathematical arguments, while different in their specifics, follow the same general program and rely on the same…
