- Learning Outcomes
- By the end of this paper, students will have gained a general knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms of reproduction and development across a range of animal groups
- Students will be able to work individually to source scientific knowledge and to communicate ideas effectively in written form
- In addition, they will have demonstrated an ability to work as a member of a team to design and run simple experiments and have gained experience in the use of statistical analysis to support their findings
- Finally, students will be introduced to some of the social, ethical and cultural issues surrounding animal physiology and will be encouraged to formulate their own opinions on some of these issues
