Results of learning outcomes

By the end of this module, students will possess the ability to expertly utilize the technical vocabulary most commonly associated with chemical and biological disciplines. They will be familiar with the fundamental biological molecules essential to life and capable of describing the structure of principal sugars, lipids, and amino acids. Additionally, students will skillfully identify the correlation between the structure and function of biological molecules by analyzing pertinent examples. Furthermore, they will contextualize the knowledge they've gained within a digital perspective. Finally, students will be able to confidently present their knowledge both verbally and in concise written statements.
