Talk:2017 Group Project 5
|Student Projects: 1 Cerebral Cortex | 2 Kidney | 3 Heart | 4 Eye | 5 Lung | 6 Cerebellum|
|Student Page - here is the sample page I demonstrated with in the first labs.I remind all students that you have your own Group Forum on Moodle for your discussions, it is only accessible by members of your group.|
I have now added a discussion Forum for your group to Moodle. You can add your discussion here (available to everyone) or in your Moodle Group Discussion (available to only your group members).
The collapsible table below shows the assessment criteria that will be used for this group project.
About the Discussion Page
This should be considered as the "other side" of the project page. It is an area where you can:
- Assemble resources.
- Add useful links.
- Discuss your project with team members. (Please do not use student names on any page on this Wiki)
- Paste your Peer Assessments. (Added anonymously, do not identify yourself)
Suggested Starting Places
BMC Dev Biol Search: Lung Development
This paper is divided into logical categories however lacks an introduction to lead into the discussion of lung development. The student drawings are all good, and the developmental timeline is very informative. The images are well referenced and have the appropriate Copyright. The "Structure of Respiratory Network", "Developmental signalling processes", "Research" and "Animal models" sections of the page lack in-text citations and thus lack credibility. The references need to be fine tuned, and the formatting of images is required. Otherwise this is a very informative page.
Future questions and current research subheadings are incomplete. Don’t forget to add references, copyright statements and the student image template to each of the images that have been used on the wikipage. References should be used on Lung Histology to show the research that has been done. The animal models section is comprehensive but there are barely any references to show where the information was found.
Subheadings and content that have been used show a good understanding of the topic area. The team have used their own images to show their understanding. The team has used images in the ‘Developmental timeline’ table which shows comprehensive research. The images have brief descriptions below them, hence readers will be able to understand what the image is displaying. Important words in relation to the lung have been bolded. The abnormal development section is done comprehensively with references and images. References were cited properly, however there is an error on reference 20.
The project page is looking good. I particularly found the developmental timeline to be very informative and easy to follow. I like the fact that you have used a table here to display it along with diagrams that fit each stage, with each diagram being cited and referenced correctly. I think the diagram that is related to the histology section could be a little clearer to read as it is a little jumbled and slightly hard to distinguish everything. The section on developmental signaling processes is good, and gives the detail without making the section too long and complicated. ‘current understandings and areas of research’ has no information as of yet, it would be good to add some recent research papers with a short summary. The use of movies is helpful, but maybe consider moving them further up the page, to a more relevant section, the beginning of ‘developmental origin’ would be better. A glossary of terms would be helpful, as some of the jargon is complicated. There seems to be a citing error in the reference list that should be dealt with. Overall it is a very interesting topic and I think you have executed it well so far
The page is quite informative, however there are incomplete sections including the introduction and the last few topics towards the end. There is a clever use of self drawn images to avoid any copyright issues, but the lung histology image can be a bit hard to read due to the lack of contrast (the grey outline and font being a bit light to read) and the image itself is bit unclear (Is it a lateral view? cross sectional? towards the apex of the lung?). The bolding of main terms at the start of the page is a nice touch, it would work better if there was a glossary at the end of the page stating the bolded terms and their meaning. It would also be better if the rest of the page had their main terms bolded as well and added to the glossary. The movies section seemed a bit out of place and did not flow from the previous and next topics, it would be better to move them into the "developmental" topics. In the abnormal development and animal models sections, more images that correlate to each subheading would be advised to help the reader visualise the abnormalities or results instead of reading chunks of words. Such images could include x-rays, images of physical observations of sufferers, graphs and figures. Development of the lungs topics were easy to: follow, read and understand, which is extremely important. Ref 22 isn't stated properly.
This page is very informative, the headings and subheadings were highly appropriate and made the development process much easier to follow. There is a relevant amount of background information under "Lung Anatomy, Histology and Vasculature". Although most sections were cited correctly, some areas were missing references, such as "Structure of Respiratory Network", and "Lung Anatomy and Histology" . A good amount of images were used (images were very well drawn and easy to understand) and they were accompanied with relevant information. Perhaps you could add in more images in the Abnormal development section? I enjoyed reading the table of "Developmental Timeline" as it was very easy to understand and had appropriate images. Future questions and Glossary were left blank and would be very useful if they were done but I assume that they would be completed with time. Overall, the page seems to have a good amount of information on it so far, well done.
