UNICELL – the cell: unity within diversity University of Bordeaux
This course consists of a hybrid learning module that providesessential information about the major components of the cell and howthese components contribute to the overall functioning. The cell isanalysed as if it were a unicellular organism. "Uni" stands for "unityin diversity" as the cells of different organisms have many elementsin common.Students attend lectures and must prepare as part of a team, lecturesfor fellow students on a selected subject.
- High-school graduate level of cell biology - Internet knowledge and connection
SUMMATIVE: - In-course assessment of formal lectures (0.4 weighting) - Assessment of peer teaching at the end of the course (during thefinal 2 face-to-face sessions, an assessment rubric is provided), (0.6weighting) - Team auto-evaluation to ensure individual accountabilityFORMATIVE: - Team auto-evaluation to ensure individual accountability (learninghow to auto-evaluate mid-way through the course)
Introductory lectures provide an overview of cells, tissues, organsand organisms. These lectures also cover organelles and their role incell functioning.Lectures presented by students provide a more detailed description ofone of the following topics: the cell membrane, cellular transportacross the cell membrane, protein synthesis, protein routing, thecomposition and roles of the cytoskeleton, secretion and endocytosis,cell division, the nucleus and gene replication. Please note: students must choose, for the preparation of theirlecture, a topic with a gene that is involved in an inheriteddisease (e.g. transporter deficiency, muscle wasting, metabolicerrors, etc.)
- 15 hours of formal face-to-face teaching - Peer teaching with the preparation of content as part of a team - Tutorials to monitor student progress - Self-learning (library, Internet resources)
