The ongoing emphasis is the development of critical skills necessary for success in the Biology major. AVAILABILITY : This course is a requirement for all students enrolled in Biology degree programs (Biology, B.S., Medical Technology, Environmental Science emphasis, Cell/Molecular Track, Fisheries, and Biology minor); no prerequisite courses. All incoming and transfer students in Biology Degree Programs MUST be co-enrolled in BI 1100 (Orientation to Biology). This course likewise counts for Group III General Education, but each non-Biology major needs to discuss his/her enrollment situation with the instructor to make sure this is the best course to fulfill specific needs. EXCEPTIONALITIES : Any students with documented psychological or learning disorders or other significant medical conditions that may affect their learning should work through Mr. Bill Chabala in our Counseling Center, 141 South Hall (Phone: 662-4798; e-mail [email protected] ) to provide me with the appropriate letter so that I may serve these particular needs more effectively. If you have an exceptionality that requires class or testing accommodations, Mr. Chabala will work with us to identify and implement appropriate interventions. GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM OUTCOMES: General Education is designed to develop student competency across the Core and General Education groups in the following skills: thinking skills including critical thinking, problem solving and analysis; communication; and an understanding of the modes of thought and methodologies of the Humanities, Language and Literature, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences. GENERAL EDUCATION LEARNING OBJECTIVES, ASSESSMENT, AND PORTFOLIO ARTIFACTS : This course has been approved for specific inclusion in the Natural Sciences block of General Education. In this course, you will learn and apply critical thinking, problem solving, analysis, and writing skills and will develop an understanding of how Science has shaped the present world and ways in which the present serves as a continuum of the past. Artifacts from this course that could be reviewed as part of the General Education Assessment Process include quizzes and lab reports. INSTRUCTORS/OFFICE HOURS
