Using formative assessment techniques, the authors show that utilizing tablet PCs for real-time interactions with students in both a Food Chemistry and an Advanced Food Chemistry course increased student learning based on grades on summative quizzes. The authors give detailed background information on the courses and their methodology.

  6. Recent Publications:

Using concept mapping introduced into the curriculum with students of a food principles course at a university in Taiwan, the authors report that based on results from experimental and control groups, concept mapping reduced the student's cognitive load particularly in the areas of mental load and frustration. They conclude “The results indicated that concept mapping can help the investigated students to understand and clarify concepts included in the curriculum, and also enhance considerably their interests in studying food science.” (p. 134)

  6. Recent Publications:

Based on pre- and post-testing, the authors show that Facebook is a useful social media tool to educate undergraduate students about food safety. The authors note: “Although students reported that they learned more from the intervention than from a traditional lecture, the combination of lecture and Facebook resulted in higher knowledge scores that those resulting from the intervention alone.” (p. 1453)
