  INTRODUCTION TO RESEARCH IN BIOLOGY

Competencies and objectives

 

Course context for academic year 2015-16

Se trata de una asignatura que recoge buena parte de las competencias transversales del módulo básico del Grado, y por tanto, tiene un marcado carácterinter disciplinar, complementando la adquisición de competencias de las asignaturas de dicho módulo. El marco operativo de la asignatura es amplio y generalista, por lo que los fundamentos teóricos resaltan los aspectos más relevantes de los principales hitos del descubrimiento científico y paradigmas en Biología, centrándose más en los procedimientos de la adquisición del conocimiento y habilidades que en los propios contenidos. Su principal objetivo es comenzar a familiarizar al alumnado con las pautas de la investigación científica en la Biología. Para ello, se pretende iniciar al alumnado en las bases del método científico y la comprensión de los fundamentos del diseño experimental, estimulando la adquisición de destrezas en el uso las de metodologías y herramientas básicas de obtención de información y comunicación científica a lo largo de diferentes fases de un trabajo de investigación.
