The use of journals by students while on placement is a well-accepted strategy for encouraging reflection on practice, with the use of online blogs for this purpose potentially providing additional benefits through shared reflection and peer support. The aim of this study was to explore the effectiveness of an online blogging activity by teacher education students while on professional placement in schools. Data were drawn from focus group interviews, questionnaires and blog postings. Findings r...

Abstract The production of olive oil comprises a number of production steps where the quality of the oil may be controlled through an understanding of how the production step influences key compounds such as volatiles and biophenols. In this study, critical production steps and significant inter-relationships between isolated production steps from fruit to oil-at-consumption were identified with the application of multivariate statistics. Having identified the key steps and relationships, sensor...

A virtual chemistry laboratory has been developed at Charles Sturt University, based on an accurate 3D model of the Wagga Wagga undergraduate teaching laboratory. The initial version of the virtual laboratory has been designed to enable distance education chemistry students to become familiar with the laboratory prior to their residential school. It allows for free exploration and for collecting and assembling items of apparatus. It also allows students to read information about the items of app...

Many undergraduate students studying chemistry subjects at Charles Sturt University (CSU) do so by Distance Education (DE). CSU has been offering subjects in chemistry in distance mode for more than 20 years. One of the greatest problems that confronts us, and others (Hollingworth and McLoughlin 2001; Kennepohl and Last 2000) in providing DE subjects is how to adequately address the teaching of a laboratory component. The practical work for CSU DE chemistry subjects is completed at intensive thr...

Web 2.0 technologies are becoming more popular in the everyday lives of students. As a result, teachers and designers have begun to explore their use in formal education. This paper presents evaluation findings from a collective case study of six Web 2.0 implementations in Australian higher education. The research was undertaken as part of a larger study that sought to understand how today's students use information and communication technologies to support their learning. Conducted across three...

In this paper, we examine students’ reflections about the value of two photosharing activities that were implemented in undergraduate Biology and Chemistry subjects. Both activities aimed, broadly, to provide support for authentic and meaningful learning experiences in undergraduate science. Although the activities were similar - both required students to capture and share images as part of an independent inquiry activity - students in the Biology case study were more positive, overall, than the...

Many have argued that interactive 3D virtual environments have great educational potential due to their ability to engage learners in the exploration, construction and manipulation of virtual objects, structures and metaphorical representations of ideas. Although learning benefits have been demonstrated in research settings, and substantial usage has occurred in workplace training contexts, there are few published evaluations of applications of such environments within university contexts. This ...

It has been widely suggested, and in some respects accepted, that a so-called Net Generation of students is passing through [Australia's] universities. Born roughly between 1980 and 1994 these students have been characterised as being technologically savvy, having grown up in an age where computers, mobile phones and the Internet are part of mainstream culture and society. A number of commentators have even suggested that educators, whom they label 'digital immigrants', need to radically adjust ...

‘Frantoio’ olive fruits were stored at low temperature (4 ± 2 °C) for 3 weeks to investigate the effect of postharvest fruit storage on virgin olive oil quality. Volatile compounds and phenolic compounds explained the changes in sensory quality that could not be explained with quality indices (FFA, PV, K232, and K270). Increases in concentrations of (E)-2-hexenal and hexanal corresponded to positive sensory quality, whereas increases in (E)-2-hexenol and (+)-acetoxypinoresinol were associated wi...

Models of carbon transport are an important mechanism for conceptualizing and assessing the significance of matter and energy sources in streams. The development of a fingerprinting technique that identifies the origins of dissolved organic carbon (DOC) would be invaluable for the development of more sophisticated carbon budget models and improving our understanding of energy flow in river systems. This study explores the potential for solid phase microextraction – gas chromatography (SPMEGC) as...
