As is exemplified by the lasting impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Biomedical Sciences and Health play a critical role within the complex societal and environmental contexts of health and wellbeing. This foundation level subject will provide commencing Bachelor of Biomedicine students an opportunity to discover and engage with this complexity and be inspired by it, whilst also welcoming and orientating them within their degree and at the University. Through the lens of Biomedical Science and Health, and incorporating Indigenous ways of knowing, students will explore aspects of people and place; respect and inclusion; University values and freedom of speech; academic integrity and good scholarly practice; and sustainability and wellbeing.
Students will participate in a range of individual and team-based learning opportunities, including lectures, and workshops for discussions, presentation tasks and project work, and the completion of required online learning modules.
