Student Perceptions of Instructor Supportiveness: What Characteristics Make a Difference?

Elisabeth E Schussler, Maryrose Weatherton, Miranda M Chen Musgrove, Jennifer R Brigati, Benjamin J England,

The use of active learning in the undergraduate biology classroom improves student learning and classroom equity, but its use can lead to student anxiety. Instructors can reduce student anxiety through practices that convey supportiveness and valuing of students. We collected students' ratings of their classroom anxiety and perceptions of their ...

How do undergraduates cope with anxiety resulting from active learning practices in introductory biology?

Jennifer R Brigati, Benjamin J England, Elisabeth E Schussler,

Active learning pedagogies decrease failure rates in undergraduate introductory biology courses, but these practices also cause anxiety for some students. Classroom anxiety can impact student learning and has been associated with decreased student retention in the major, but little is known about how students cope with anxiety caused by active ...

Student Anxiety and Perception of Difficulty Impact Performance and Persistence in Introductory Biology Courses.

Benjamin J England, Jennifer R Brigati, Elisabeth E Schussler, Miranda M Chen,

Students respond to classroom activities and achievement outcomes with a variety of emotions that can impact student success. One emotion students experience is anxiety, which can negatively impact student performance and persistence. This study investigated what types of classroom anxiety were related to student performance in the course and persistence ... Read more >>

Student anxiety in introductory biology classrooms: Perceptions about active learning and persistence in the major.

Benjamin J England, Jennifer R Brigati, Elisabeth E Schussler,

Many researchers have called for implementation of active learning practices in undergraduate science classrooms as one method to increase retention and persistence in STEM, yet there has been little research on the potential increases in student anxiety that may accompany these practices. This is of concern because excessive anxiety can ... Read more >>

Pheromone responsiveness is regulated by components of the Gpr1p-mediated glucose sensing pathway in Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

D Grant Willhite, Jennifer R Brigati, Katie E Selcer, Joshua E Denny, Zachary A Duck, Stephen E Wright,

Many fungi have evolved mechanisms to assess environmental nutrient availability prior to the energy-intensive process of mating. In this study, we examined one such system in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, involving a glucose-sensing pathway mediated by Gpr1p and the pheromone-induced mating pathway. Initially we observed that the mating pathway in MATa cells ... Read more >>

Facilitating improvements in laboratory report writing skills with less grading: a laboratory report peer-review process.

Jennifer R Brigati, Jerilyn M Swann,

Incorporating peer-review steps in the laboratory report writing process provides benefits to students, but it also can create additional work for laboratory instructors. The laboratory report writing process described here allows the instructor to grade only one lab report for every two to four students, while giving the students the ... Read more >>

Bacteriophage-amplified bioluminescent sensing of Escherichia coli O157:H7.

Steven Ripp, Patricia Jegier, Courtney M Johnson, Jennifer R Brigati, Gary S Sayler,

Escherichia coli O157:H7 remains a continuous public health threat, appearing in meats, water, fruit juices, milk, cheese, and vegetables, where its ingestion at concentrations of perhaps as low as 10 to 100 organisms can result in potent toxin exposure and severe damage to the lining of the intestine. Abdominal pain ... Read more >>

Bacteriophage-based bioluminescent bioreporter for the detection of Escherichia coli 0157:H7.

Jennifer R Brigati, Steven A Ripp, Courtney M Johnson, Polina A Iakova, Patricia Jegier, Gary S Sayler,

The rapid detection of pathogenic bacteria in food and water is vital for the prevention of foodborne illness. In this study, the lux reporter genes were used in a new bioassay that allows pathogen monitoring without multiple sample manipulations or the addition of exogenous substrate. A recombinant phage specific for ... Read more >>

Thermostability of landscape phage probes.

Jennifer R Brigati, Valery A Petrenko,

Immunoassays have traditionally relied on antibodies as diagnostic probes. Their use outside of a laboratory, however, may be problematic because antibodies are often unstable in severe environmental conditions. Environmental monitoring requires thermostable probes, such as landscape phage, that carry thousands of foreign peptides on their surfaces, are superior to antibodies, ... Read more >>
