Since 2009 undergraduate science students have been preparing online group projects as part of their ANAT2341 Embryology course. Each year a main topic is selected in consultation with the course coordinator. Each student group (4-5 students) then selects a specific topic within the main theme that they then research and work collaboratively on that topic throughout the semester. The project is then assessed by their peers before being finally edited for submission as their group assessment component for the course.
- These projects are the sole work of undergraduate science students and may contain errors in fact or descriptions.

2018 Neural Crest
2017 Tissue Development
|Student Projects: 1 Cerebral Cortex | 2 Kidney | 3 Heart | 4 Eye | 5 Lung | 6 Cerebellum|
|Signalling: 1 Wnt | 2 Notch | 3 FGF Receptor | 4 Hedgehog | 5 T-box | 6 TGF-Beta
Here are some starting places for the topic. Can be patterning, differentiation, etc. as long as a developmental signal process/pathway.
2015 Assisted Reproductive Technology
|The Group assessment for 2015 was an online project on Assisted Reproductive Technology.|
2014 Fetal Development
|The Group assessment for 2014 was an online project on Fetal Development of a specific System.
The Group assessment for 2013 will not be an online project. Please consult course outline and the introductory lecture for the 2013 course.
2012 Sensory Development

These projects extend far beyond the original "research poster concept". It requires ongoing participation from both the teacher and the student, if you are not prepared to have an ongoing contribution, do not even consider setting this type of assessment.
The following collapsed tables provide starting points for students during project work, you also have tutorials built into practical classes and practice exercises for individual assessmet items.
Prior to 2009, students in ANAT2341 Embryology course worked on similar projects, but in the form of research posters. Towards the end of the course the posters were presented to the class for peer assessment.
- Students also submit individual assessments each week online based upon the practical class they had just completed.
- A similar project format is used in the science ANAT3231 Cell Biology course.
