AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

To know structure, organization and function of different human tissues and morphological-functional characteristics of cells that compose them

Teaching methods

Classroom teaching lessons

It is possible that the method of conducting the lessons will change due to emergency situations that prevent the performance of the lessons in attendance. I this case the lessons will be carried out through the Teams platform (https://cedia.unige.it/sites/cedia.unige.it/files/pagine/TEAMS%20mini%20guida%20IT%20Studente.pdf

EXAMS

Exam description

During the lessons an ongoing test is carried out to evaluate the level of acquisition of the first contents held in the classroom and concerning the cytology.

The oral exam is aimed at evaluating the learning of knowledge related to the topics illustrated and discussed in the classroom and the ability to integrate and contestualise this knowledge

Assessment methods

1. The choice of the examination method allows to verify the acquisition of the knowledge inserted in the training objectives

2. The oral test that is the examination methods used and that includes most of the program carried out allows to better evaluate how the student orients himself in the entire tissue scenario addressed in class, allowing also to evaluate his reasoning skills aimed at associating structural notions with functional concepts

it is possible that emergency stuation prevent the students to taking part in examination in attendance for the final evaluation. In this case, the Teams platform will be used (https://cedia.unige.it/sites/cedia.unige.it/files/pagine/TEAMS%20mini%20guida%20IT%20Studente.pdf )
