The proposed subject requires students to attend weekly departmental scientific seminars, and a subset of lectures in Anatomy & Physiology (ANAT90004). Assessment will be based on a written report and an oral presentation. Students will be required to provide a 3000-word report reviewing the scientific literature relevant to their chosen area of research, and an oral presentation will be made on the critical analysis of a journal paper. The proposed format provides students with an introduction to the anatomy and physiology of the auditory system, as well as experience in the interpretation, critical analysis and presentation of scientific data. These skills are pertinent to their training in the communication and interpretation of scientific literature and research, and provide students with a sound basis on which to undertake the lab-based research component of the Honours year.
Intended learning outcomes
On completion of this subject students should demonstrate knowledge of:
- Developing hypotheses based on knowledge of the major concepts and previous studies related to their research question.
- The range of research methods which could be used to answer their research question.
- Critically interpreting published data and place it in the literature of the field.
On completion of this subject students should have developed competency in:
- Critical thinking, utilising logic, evidence evaluate claims and solve problems regarding medical research.
- Evaluating published studies for validity and relevance to their research question.
- Communication, including written reports, and clear verbal communication to a group of peers.
Application of knowledge and skills
On completion of this subject students should be able to apply their knowledge and skills to:
- Evaluate the scientific evidence base.
