Research Problem
  • A major recommendation from national studies (i.e., Vision and Change, AAAS/NSF; ASM Undergraduate Curriculum Guidelines) on higher education in science is to teach core concepts and to employ active learning.
  • There are a wide variety of active learning methods.
  • Instructors have little evidence to guide them on which method to select for specific concepts.

research question
Research Question
  • Research Question:
    • Do different active learning methods have different efficacies with specific concepts for promoting student learning?
    • If so, are students more favorable towards the method that is more effective?
  • Research Context:
    • BIOL 3470, general microbiology course of 40 students required for all Biology majors. SHSU is a regional public comprehensive university.
  • My question is interesting because:
    • The current body of literature strongly supports efficacy of active learning in general; this study extends that by comparison of different methods.
