WI courses at UPEI “use writing as a major means of developing thinking and learning in the discipline. .. integrate a significant amount of writing (and opportunities for revision) into the work of the course, providing . .. occasions for students to write and learn. ..”. All students need WI courses to graduate so this will benefit you greatly. Most writing will be in the form of lab reports. Whole lab periods will be devoted to learning how to succeed in scientific writing !! Other writing include ‘quick-writes’, and midterm tests. # Lectures are held Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 10:30-11:20 in MacDougall Hall, Room 243. It is not a good idea to miss lectures in physiology as this is where concepts are explained and where you get plenty of opportunities for evaluating your knowledge before tests (writing ‘quick- writes’, working on problem sets). There is no text book to refer to! # There is NO text book for this course. However, Biology be used for many areas of the course. Lecture notes will be composed by the instructor and will be available for downloading from moodle web site.
