To become effective research scientists, students need to develop the skills such as critical review and analysis of data, appropriate design and execution of experiments, appropriate documentation of experimental plans and results, interpretation of data and presentation and communication of data. Drawing on recent advances in microbiology and immunology, this subject will involve critical review and presentation of scientific data in an oral and written form. This subject is designed to give level 4 honours year experience in skills required for critical analysis and communication of scientific concepts. This subject is designed to provide students with experience to help enable the transition from undergraduate to postgraduate study. The material covered will complement that covered in MIIM40002 Advanced Microbiology and Immunology I.
Intended learning outcomes
At the end of the subject students should be able research, critically review, present and discuss various perspectives related to bacteriology, virology and/or immunology. Students will gain experience in how to document, analyse and present scientific procedures, data, conclusions and their implications in both oral and written form by synthesising scientific hypotheses based on provided data, and their experience in appropriate experimental design to test the hypotheses and both of these concepts.
Upon completion of this subject, students should have developed the capacity for critical review and synthesis of arguments based on evidence, the capacity to work cooperatively with others, an advanced capacity for written and oral scientific presentation, the ability to manage information effectively including the use computer technologies for scholarly pursuits, and the ability to communicate effectively in a public forum away from the scientific discipline.
