Course Outcomes

We developed this course structure with the hopes of

  • Engaging you in the world of Biochemistry and Biomedical Sciences 
  • Providing you with basic technical laboratory training and scientific communication skills

We have designed the classes and labs to be highly interactive. We will embark on many team-based workshops. However, we also believe in individuality and so everyone must work hard to achieve a balance between the two.

Finally, we would like to share our teaching/learning beliefs. We want everyone to feel safe and respected in this course. In support of this goal, our course mantras are:

In OUR course:

  • Every voice matters
  • Every individual is treated with respect, dignity, and equality
  • We will establish a safe, inviting, and caring environment so we can share our thoughts and ideas with one another and learn from each other
  • Everyone shares the responsibility for making our course a POSITIVE, engaging, respectful, and fun environment

Your Individual Perspective


We would like all of you to take a moment and think about the following:

  • What are my course expectations?
  • What are my course goals? What are my future goals? What are my learning beliefs?

Reflect carefully on the questions above and share them in class whenever appropriate.
