ANAT2341 Lab 11

From Embryology


2. Group Projects

  1. Students will give a brief (informal, no assessment) summary of their project and project process in the class.
  2. You will have also time within the class to make final changes to complete the final submission.
  3. Group projects will then be locked to prevent further changes tomorrow (Wednesday) at midday.

I will now give each group an opportunity to give a short presentation (5-10 min) of their project to the rest of the class in todays laboratory. THIS IS NOT AN ASSESSMENT ITEM.

Please note the final practical will give you an opportunity to briefly present your project to your classmates. I will not be making any assessment of your presentation. This is an opportunity to discuss how you planned your project and what worked/did not work for your group.

Projects are locked from midday Wednesday 17th October.

  • I will complete the final project assessments during study week.
  • This component will contribute 20% of your final mark for the course.
  • The Group Assessment Criteria are shown in the table below.
  • The Project Page is assessed and given a mark out of 20.
    • If you have made a significant, ongoing, error free contribution to the project page, you will receive the full mark given to the project.
  • Each member of the group will be assessed separately for their contribution to the project page.
    • Evidence of ongoing contribution from the project history (not just in the final weeks).
    • Evidence of significant contribution from the project history (not just a large number of small edits).
    • Evidence uploaded content conforms to referencing and copyright conditions.
    • Evidence of interaction with other group members (from discussion page, Moodle forum and other identifiable sources)

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.

3. Stem Cell Paper Preparation

There will be some discussion and preparation for the Stem Cell Paper presentation next week in Lab 12.

4. My Experience

Please remember to complete you're MyExperience survey (accessed in Moodle) for this course.

We have recently redesigned the course based upon feedback and the new 2025 UNSW educational plan. These changes are designed to help students learning and include:

  1. Putting one lecture online each week online to simplify student attendance and provide an alternative self-directed learning component.
  2. Introducing tutorials to review the online lectures.
  3. Timetabling face to face lecture and laboratory to be on the same day.
  4. Increasing research guest researcher presentation in the laboratory.
  5. Including new "wet lab" components.
  6. Adjusting assessment criteria allocation, less theory exam (50%) more individual assessment (30%).
  7. Introducing weekly quizzes for individual assessment.
