Teaching Rationale And Relationship
The seminars are used to review the core scientific material and key concepts in a concise manner (K1, S1-S2) and to direct students towards important original sources of information in the study guides providing a framework for guided independent study and revision (K1, S1-S2). Several seminars 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 (K1, S1-S3). The seminars provide opportunities to increase understanding by reflection and discussion. (K1).
