BGM3058 : Integrated Genetics
- Offered for Year: 2019/20
- Module Leader(s): Professor David Lydall
- Owning School: Biomedical Sciences
- Teaching Location: Newcastle City Campus
|Semester 2 Credit Value:||10|
The BGM3058 module (Integrated Genetics) is designed to:
• encourage students to consolidate their knowledge of fundamental genetic principles as taught throughout the Biomedical Genetics programme.
• reinforce the development of important critical skills including interpretation of the scientific literature, data analysis and problem solving.
• provide a support framework to enable effective and planned revision ahead of the final written examinations.
Outline Of Syllabus
The module provides a review of all compulsory modules specified in the biomedical genetics programmes.
|Scheduled Learning And Teaching Activities||Small group teaching||7||1:00||7:00||Skills sessions (5 in SM1 and 2 in SM2 subject to student requests)|
|Guided Independent Study||Independent study||93||1:00||93:00||Individual Study|
Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The skills sessions are used to review the core scientific material and key concepts in a concise manner (K1-K2,
S1-S4) and to direct students towards important original sources of information in the study guides providing a
framework for guided independent study and revision (K1-K2, S1-S4). Skills sessions aid the development of an
understanding of current research and the experimental basis of key concepts and core knowledge (K1-K2, S1-S4).
These sessions also provide experience of abstract and data analysis using practice questions to stimulate
informal discussion and aid in the development of critical skills and problem solving (K2, S1-S4). The skills sessions provide opportunities to increase understanding by reflection and discussion (K1-K2, S1).
The format of resits will be determined by the Board of Examiners
|Written Examination||180||2||A||100||Four sections (2 -5 questions in each section). 3 hours in duration.|
Assessment Rationale And Relationship
The written examination tests core knowledge and understanding of the subject under time-constraint
conditions (K1-K2, S1-S4). The abstract and data analysis components of the examination test critical thinking, problem
solving, data analysis and interpretation (K2, S1-S4).
