  1. TEACHING OUTCOMES
Teaching outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course students will be able:

  • to adequately produce oral and written language in English so that they can effectively receive and use a wide range of information, knowledge and ideas (either oral or/and written),
  • to structure, organize and document the language they produce in English so that they can express their own ideas, emotions and personal views according to appropriate communicative circumstances
  • to develop communicative strategies so that they can select and use appropriate vocabulary contingent on the communicative situation they participate
  • to get to know a wide range of different text types in academic and ESP English so that they can appreciate their grammatical structure and vocabulary specific to each academic text type
  • to develop cognitive and social capabilities that allow students to select necessary information, classify them, process them, cross-check their validity and effectively transmit them in productive and receptive tasks
  • to develop study skills and abilities that will ensure access to life-long learning and development that takes the form of ‘learning how to learn’, team collaboration, knowledge negotiation, decision-making, flexibility, prediction and self-presentation.
General capabilities
Teaching language involves the development of the following skills:

Extension of students’ communicative strategies repertoire in English as a Foreign Language beyond how they can already communicative in their first language,

Skillful use of a foreign language on the students’ part to search for, discover and understand information related to their educational needs and interests as well as their communicative preferences,

The development of the ability on the students’ part to recognize the value of different thinking modes, ways of expression of human experiences and the use of appropriate linguistic means for communication purposes among people of foreign socio-cultural formations,

The development of a level of ‘language awareness’,

The ability on the students’ part to function as a mediator between monolingual individuals and groups,

The ability on the students’ part to assume a wide range of roles in relevant communicative situations using English as a Foreign Language.

Use and knowledge on the students’ part of socio-cultural issues, institutions, values and codes of linguistic behaviour while using English as a Foreign Language.

The purpose of the course is the study of the morphology and anatomy of higher plants. In detail description of the plant cells, plant tissues or plant organs in order to learn the structure of morphological diversity and environmental adaptations of vascular plants. At the end of the course the students will be able to identify and describe macroscopic and microscopic morphological characters of higher plants.

STUDENT ASSESSMENT

 

Written exams at the end of the semester both on theory and exercises

Two tests are taken within the semester and the average of the grade of those tests is multiplied by 0,3 and is added to the grade of the final test. The precondition for the validity of this bonus is the grade of the final test to be equal or over three. 2. Assignments are delegated to the students that are graded with ranking 0-2. The grade of this assignment is added to the final grade of the semester. The precondition for the validity of this bonus is the grade of the final test to be equal or over three
