Our course has focused on the unique aspects of plant biology or what I've called the "plant way of life." The course was essentially put together in four major blocks: cells & cell growth, water and transport, plant hormones, plant responses to the environment. I especially tried to include the scientific reasoning and experimental data that supported most of the concepts that we covered. The labs included topics to support the lecture concepts. I'd appreciate any feedback to improve the course the next time it is taught.
you liked about the course?
one thing that you think really needs to be changed?
What is your opinion of the workload?
you think of the textbook and the textbook web site?
your overall opinion of the lab experience?
8. What do you think of the following labs (please comment on such things as appropriate workload, difficulty, quality and value of the learning experience, lab assignments, lab grading, etc.):
Qubit Lab (photosynthesis)
Anthocyanin in cabbage
Video Project (Awn movement)
Maple Sap trip (& quiz)
What topics would you have
liked to study in lab that we didn't?
general approach to lecture was to try to involve the class in the discussions rather than simply lecture.
Would you have preferred more traditional lectures and/or PowerPoint
presentations? Can you offer suggestions how to make the lecture portion
of the course more interactive?
course fulfilled your expectations (i.e., topics covered, labs performed, things
learned, presentations)? Why
or why not?
your opinion of the test style (i.e., given questions in advance)?
Would you prefer a more "typical" test with a combo of short
answer and objective questions?
Do you have any additional comments?
