Laboratory and Research Skills 1D module (BS12004)
This module will extend and develop the generic skills introduced in BS12003 with specific emphasis on data presentation, interpretation and analysis. The ability to work effectively as part of a group and the application of peer support and peer-assessment will form a significant part of this module. Students will extend their information literacy and scientific writing skills by researching and presenting an area of current research in poster format, giving due attention to scientific writing protocols. Students will be encouraged to reflect on and evaluate their own learning throughout the semester, identifying areas for development and consolidation and setting appropriate targets.
