    INFO ABOUT THE COURSE


    OBJECTIVES OF THE COURSE

    • Knowledge and understanding: This course aims to provide understanding of the pathological clinical manifestations of the reproductive system in domestic animals and humans, focusing on the pathogenesis of cell injury/death. Using the animal model, the student will acquire the necessary cytopreparation techniques to assess pathological reproductive structures.
    • Applying knowledge and understanding: After the course students will be able to apply their knowledge, understanding to demonstrate their ability to solve problems related to the biotechnology of reproduction multi disciplinary context in both the zoo technical field and in medically assisted procreation
    • Making judgements: Making judgement is developed through independent and group activities requiring an individual effort (self-evaluation tests) together with group (colleagues) comparison (laboratory exercises).
    • Communication: After the course students will be able to communicate clearly and concisely utilizing their conclusions, information, acquired knowledge, underpinning rationale, ideas, problems and solutions related to the topics covered by specialists and non-specialists. In particular, they will be able to present their conclusions on biotechnology issues in a logical, concise and rigorous manner and to communicate, using the appropriate technical-scientific language.
    • Learning skills: Students are expected to develop learning skills and strategies to enable them to study both continuously and independently the course content and library materials, consultation databases and other web information
