The teaching faculty for this course sought to address their own concerns about the quality of student learning in an impersonal large lecture biology class for majors, the difficulties in getting to know each student by name, and difficulties in soliciting answers and reactions from the students during the lecture. Questions addressed by this study were,(More)
We investigated effects of acute hyperoxia on solute transport from air space to vascular space in isolated rat lungs. Air spaces were filled with Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate solution containing fluorescein isothiocyanate-labeled dextran (FD-20; mol wt 20,000) and either 22Na+ and [14C]sucrose, or D-[14C]glucose and L-[3H]glucose. Apparent permeability-surface(More)
This article is from a symposium presented at the annual meeting of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) on June 11, 2000. The presentation was funded under the auspices of a National Science Foundation Course, Curriculum, and Laboratory Improvement Program entitled "Development of Active Learning Materials for Physiology and Functional Anatomy:(More)
Ion channels are essential for the basic physiological function of excitable cells such as nerve, skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle cells. Mutations in genes that encode ion channels have been identified to cause various diseases and disorders known as channelopathies. An understanding of how individual ion channels are involved in the activation of(More)
Faculty members from the University of South Dakota attended the Curriculum Reform Institute offered by the University of Wisconsin at Oshkosh, WI, during the summer of 2002 to design a course sequence for elementary education majors that better meets their needs for both content and pedagogy based on the science education standards. The special section of(More)
• The literature lacks a clearly established link between class size and student learning. A robust comparison of class size and learning is difficult because a change in class size is often accompanied by a change in a variety of other factors as well. See (Goodman, Koster, & Redinius, 2005) for a good example of a well-designed study that explores this(More)

long-standing ideas about the nature of science, so as to place them in the context of modern education research. Their report, Scientific Research in Education (3), investigated " scientifically based " education research to be used for improving education policy and practice. The report showed that while researchers may disagree about philosophical or(More)
This article grew out of a presentation at the 82nd Annual Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science Pacific Division in Irvine, California in June 2001. The symposium "Sharing Science: Successful Scientist Expert-Teacher Practitioner Interactions" was organized by Drs. Nancy J. Pelaez and Barbara L. Gonzalez of California State(More)
