Title: First Year Biochemical Science Students - Excursion to Trong Leisure Duck Farm and Resort (自農休閒農莊)


Date: 2nd July 2016, Saturday, 8 am to 3 pm


Description: One of the biggest challenges in teaching biology is the attitude toward science that many students bring to class. Many of the students enrolled in introductory biology classes at the high school or college level are there for no particularly positive reason, and may even be openly hostile or apprehensive about the course (Steglich 2000). According to Deputy Education Minister Chong Sin Woon, the teacher-oriented teaching and learning process is no longer suitable for students in the 21st century. Active learning should be incorporated into the system. Thus, the objectives and learning outcomes of the excursion and brochure are:


1. To help students to see that the course content is of interest to them professionally, regardless of career plans, and personally.

2. To help students to realize that science is done by people who were not born scientists, but learned to do science through years of hard work. The human face of science often gets lost in the process of learning the details of cell structure and function.

3. To increase their involvements in the learning process, which promote a better understanding of and engagement in cell biology-related content.

4. To enable the students to think beyond the words they read-to learn by doing in a safe environment.

5. To be trained to work in a group or to play as a team-member.

6. To encourage the students to be physically and intellectually involved in their lessons to allow them to both express themselves in a scientific context and develop an understanding of difficult concepts in cell biology.

FYP Student Conference Award Presentation for January Trimester 2016.

20 April 2016, 2-3pm; DDK1


Activity: First Year Biomedical Science Students - Poster Presentation on Cell Structure


Date: 7th April 2016, Thursday, 8.00 am to 10.00 am


Venue: EDK 5, UTAR Kampar Perak


Description: Posters are a key component of communicating science and an important element in a successful scientific career. Thus, students of first year biomedical science were given the opportunity to present their laboratory work on cell structure in a poster and they were exposed to do it in a team. This activity has enabled the students


1. To increase their involvements in the learning process, which promote a better understanding of and engagement in cell biology-related content.

2. To think beyond the words they read-to learn by doing in a safe environment.

3. To be trained to work in a group or to play as a team-member.
