Course description

SCIE1200 aims to promote the breadth of scientific endeavour, the integrated nature of scientific disciplines, and the importance of scientific process and critical thinking. Students will work in groups, examining a series of real scientific issues, dealing with medical, environmental and social issues. Students will learn more about the associated scientific research, integrate expert knowledge, and build on their own new university knowledge and experiences. This is a face-to-face course, using a combination of scientific discussion, self-directed learning, student presentations, class activities and a practical component.
