An important learning goal of a molecular biology curriculum is the attainment of a certain competence level in experimental design. Currently, undergraduate students are confronted with experimental approaches in textbooks, lectures and laboratory...
Global Learn 2010 (May 17, 2010) pp. 1418–1427
Advance of information and communication technology inspires faculty to search for new goals in higher education. In several universities, faculty members in natural and engineering sciences invest in design, realization, implementation, use and...
Design of Digital Learning Material on Social–Psychological Theories for Nutrition Behavior Research.
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia Vol. 16, No. 2 (April 2007) pp. 163–182
This article describes the design, implementation and evaluation of digital learning material on the social – psychological Theory of Planned Behavior (TPB) and its use in nutrition behavior research. The design is based on guidelines derived from...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 15, No. 3 (October 2006) pp. 227–246
Laboratory classes are regarded as an important learning activity, but they also have shortcomings: laboratory classes are often an inefficient learning activity for students and often do not sufficiently support students in developing research...
Towards an Integration of Printed and Digital Learning Materials for Food Chemistry Education into a Full E-learning Course
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 6073–6078
This paper describes the first stage in the design, development and evaluation of an electronic course book for Food Chemistry. Previous work on the development of digital learning materials for Food Chemistry resulted in several distinct modules...
Exploring the Potential of Smartphones and Tablets for Performance Support in Food Chemistry Laboratory Classes
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 22, No. 6 (December 2013) pp. 984–992
Increasingly, mobile applications appear on the market that can support students in chemistry laboratory classes. In a multiple app-supported laboratory, each of these applications covers one use-case. In practice, this leads to situations in which...
Journal of Science Education and Technology Vol. 14, No. 1 (March 2005) pp. 123–134
Building models to describe processes forms an essential part of molecular biology research. However, in molecular biology curricula little attention is generally being paid to the development of this skill. In order to provide students the...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2012 (Jun 26, 2012) pp. 1844–1846
Chemistry laboratory classes can be demanding for students with regard to their cognitive architecture, leading to an overloading of their so-called ‘working memory’. To support students during laboratory work, three web based tools have been...
Design Guidelines for the Development of Digital Nutrigenomics Learning Material for Heterogeneous Target Groups
Advances in Physiology Education Vol. 31, No. 1 (March 2007) pp. 67–75
Nutritional genomics, or nutrigenomics, can be considered as the combination of molecular nutrition and genomics. Students who attend courses in nutrigenomics differ with respect to their prior knowledge. This study describes digital nutrigenomics...
World Conference on Educational Media and Technology 2008 (Jun 30, 2008) pp. 2247–2252
Most well-known Learning Management Systems (LMS) are based on a paradigm of learning objects to be uploaded into the system. Most formulations of this paradigm implicitly assume that the learning objects are self contained learning objects such as...
Journal of Computers in Mathematics and Science Teaching Vol. 25, No. 2 (April 2006) pp. 101–122
Computer simulations can facilitate the building of models of natural phenomena in research, for example in the molecular life sciences. In order to introduce molecular life science students to using computer simulations for model building, a...
