Not too easy. Not too difficult.
The structure of the class is based on independant study for the most part. You watch the lectures and complete the objectives on your own time and during clas you have the opportunity to ask questions and elaborate with your study group. I liked the course because I was able to be challenged on my opinion. I found that there were other ways of looking at things and that my views were not the only ones that mattered. It allowed me to understand different mechanisms in different ways.
I especially liked working in groups. Group members are sometimes better at relaying information and helping youto understand something because you are on a closer level to them than the professor is. I also liked doing case studies where we get to practice what we have learned on a "real life patient". There was also the opportunity to create cellular models so that we understand the different components of the cells and organs and moleclar structures that are vital to immunology

Advice for students:
Come to class prepared with your learning objectives complete. Alot of times when you think you understand something, it can be broken down so much further. Having the baseline of information so that you can understand the bigger picture that is explained in class is essential. Also, if you dont understant, dont be afraid to be the person in the group to ask questions. Put forth an effort to learn, dont be afraid to speak up if something doesnt seem right.
