2011 Lab 1: Introduction | Gametogenesis | Oogenesis | Spermatogenesis | Fertilization | Online Assessment


Exercise #1 - Online Work

Exercise #2 - Online exercise using the topic of "Fertilization"

See also wiki editing sheet. Fertilisation/Fertilization (UK versus US spelling)

  • Making a link.
  • Pasting a picture (naming uploaded material).
  • Making a table. (covered next week)
  • Adding References. (covered next week)
  • Resources - Searching the internet, identifying good sources, Medline (Pubmed), UNSW Library databases, referencing, copyright and journals. (covered next week)

Individual Assessment

Tasks to be completed each week usually submitted online, or as written sheet for some guest tutors (20% of final course mark).

Lab 1 Assessment

  1. Identify the origin of In Vitro Fertilization and the 2010 nobel prize winner associated with this technique.
  2. Identify a recent paper on fertilisation and describe its key findings (1-2 paragraphs).

Group Assessment

This is a group project online work on a specific topic throughout semester (20% of final course mark). Assessment criteria will be listed online and discussed. Time will be made available within the labs for group discussions and some tutorials on techniques. Group project work should be completed and discussed mainly online and outside the timetabled laboratories. (Project Page / Discussion Page)

  • Week 2 to 8 - project organisation, individual contributions, collaborative research and editing.
  • Week 8 - project assessed online by individuals in other groups and providing both positive and negative feedback (part of individual assessment).
  • Week 9 to 11 - update project on basis of peer assessments and own assessment.
  • Week 12 - final submission date for the coordinator assessment. Project pages are locked.

  1. Each group will decide upon a specific topic from within the sub-list or of their own related choice.
  2. If 2 groups choose to do the same topic the course coordinator will allocate each group a different topic (not of their choosing).

Group Topics

The project should include the following basic components:

  1. Introduction (tell me about the topic)
  2. Historic background of topic (timeline, notable researchers or labs)
  3. Current associated research (new papers and findings)
  4. Simplified description of topic (related issues)
  5. Related genetic information (gene location, statistics)
  6. One student drawn figure or animation (well labeled)
  7. Reference List (formatted using the Pubmed reference link technique)
  8. Glossary (explanation of terms and acronyms used within your project)
  9. External Links (related online resources, labs, groups, news links etc)

Group Assessment Criteria

1. The key points relating to the topic that your group allocated are clearly described.

2. The choice of content, headings and sub-headings, diagrams, tables, graphs show a good understanding of the topic area.

3. Content is correctly cited and referenced.

4. The wiki has an element of teaching at a peer level using the student's own innovative diagrams, tables or figures and/or using interesting examples or explanations.

5. Evidence of significant research relating to basic and applied sciences that goes beyond the formal teaching activities.

6. Relates the topic and content of the Wiki entry to learning aims of embryology.

7. Clearly reflects on editing/feedback from group peers and articulates how the Wiki could be improved (or not) based on peer comments/feedback. Demonstrates an ability to review own work when criticised in an open edited wiki format. Reflects on what was learned from the process of editing a peer's wiki.

8. Evaluates own performance and that of group peers to give a rounded summary of this wiki process in terms of group effort and achievement.

9. The content of the wiki should demonstrate to the reader that your group has researched adequately on this topic and covered the key areas necessary to inform your peers in their learning.

10. Develops and edits the wiki entries in accordance with the above guidelines.
