Presentation Transcript

  1. Research Problem • Students in my introductory biology course struggle with the concepts of osmoregulation in the nephron and the events during an action potential.

  2. Research Question • Research Question: • Will having students create a sequential visual/text explanation (aka, a comic) of a physiological process improve their ability to explain that physiological processes? • Research Context: • First semester sophomores in Biology II • My question is interesting because: • Images have been critical tools used by scientists to explain scientific concepts.

  3. Research Methodology First half of the semester Second half of the semester Pretest 5 osmo 5 AP 2-tier Test 1 5 osmo 2-tier Test 2 5 AP 2-tier Survey Section 1 (N=45) NON Draw Nephron activity Draw AP activity Pretest 5 osmo 5 AP 2-tier Test 1 5 osmo 2-tier Test 2 5 AP 2-tier Section 2 (N=45) Survey NON Draw AP activity Draw Nephron activity

  4. Alignment of Research Question and Methodology Question: Will creating a sequential visual/text explanation (aka, a comic) of a physiological process improve student’s ability to explain physiological processes?
