Academics’ conceptions of assessment and their assessment practices
Abstract The present study focuses; firstly, on analysing academics’ conceptions of the purpose of assessment; secondly, on their assessment practices; and thirdly, on the relationship between their… Expand
University students’ and teachers’ conceptions of teaching and learning in the biosciences
In this study we compare university teachers’ and first-year students’ conceptions of teaching and learning at the Faculty of Environmental and Biological Sciences. The conceptions were analysed… Expand
Factors affecting bioscience students’ academic achievement
The examination of academic progression has become an essential tool for measuring the effectiveness of educational systems. Research concerning the relationship between student learning and how they… Expand
Microsatellite marker identification using genome screening and restriction-ligation.
We have identified a fast and easy method for finding microsatellite markers that utilizes genome screening with inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) primers to detect microsatellite regions and to… Expand
Genetic diversity in cyanobacterial symbionts of thalloid bryophytes.
Two species of thalloid liverworts, Blasia pusilla and Cavicularia densa, form stable symbioses with nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria. Both bryophytes promote the persistence of their cyanobacterial… Expand
Spatial genetic structure of aquatic bryophytes in a connected lake system.
Using genetic markers, we investigated the genetic structure of three clonal aquatic moss species, Calliergon megalophyllum Mikut., Fontinalis antipyretica Hedw. and F. hypnoides Hartm. on two… Expand
Molecular evidence shows that the moss Rhytidiadelphus subpinnatus (Hylocomiaceae) is clearly distinct from R. squarrosus.
Life science teachers’ discourse on assessment: a valuable insight into the variable conceptions of assessment in higher education
Teachers’ conceptions of teaching, including assessment practices, are substantial in directing student learning. Our article refers to assessment at tertiary level biological education. We studied… Expand
The function of social support in engaging and disengaging experiences among post PhD researchers in STEM disciplines
ABSTRACT The post-doctoral phase is characterized by a high level of competition and even a risk of unemployment due to the increasing number of PhDs. This study explores the function of social… Expand
Understanding the variation in bioscience students' conceptions of learning in the 21st century
Abstract Recent qualitative studies about students’ conceptions of learning have been scarce. The present study explores university students’ conceptions of learning in biosciences. The analysis was… Expand
