Abstract

Cellular respiration has always been a difficult topic to teach; the subject is full of endlessly complex biochemical pathways and students often struggle to see
their purpose and relevance. In this article I discuss the use of ‘real-time’ case scenarios to enhance the teaching of cellular respiration while also encouraging
higher-order critical thinking skills and better preparation for the transition from further education to higher education for Access Level 3 students. This research shows that while the use of a case study can enhance engagement, relevance and teaching of theory, more work is required to prove this conclusively, including greater student feedback and example assessment grades, along with the provision of more time and deeper questioning techniques.
