Student Learning Outcomes - Upon successful completion of this course students will be able to:
- Develop and apply a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to animal physiology;
- Communicate clearly and in a way that demonstrates knowledge and understanding of animal physiology and the ability to adapt information for different applications;
- Recognize and explain the physiological functions of body systems in relation to component structures;
- Recognize and explain the interrelationships within and between physiological systems;
- Predict physiological consequences of homeostatic imbalance;
- Connect physiological principles/concepts to real-world situations, including disease, environmental impacts, and other health-related issues;
- Connect physiological principles/concepts to other those of other disciplines (e.g., ecology, evolution, chemistry, physics, engineering);
- Analyze and use data, visual displays of information (e.g., graphs, tables, textbook figures, concept maps/flow charts, etc.), and mathematical equations to explain physiological phenomena;
- Apply information literacy skills to access, evaluate, and use appropriate resources;
- Construct explanations/arguments from scientific evidence;
- Demonstrate appropriate laboratory procedures to collect and analyze physiological data quantitatively and qualitatively.
