Storyboard Text

  • Developing a learning activity which enables students to understand and explain the function of the lac operon.
  • Bachelor of Science Year 1 BIO510 Zoology Topic 1 – The animal cell Ms. Rupantri Raju S11010547 Department of Biology, Fiji National University.
  • Learning Objectives
  • 1. Students should be able to understand the concept of the lac operon model. 2. Students should be able to describe the function of the lac operon model.
  • Learning Activities
  • 1. The lac operon will be studied by observing an online animation on its mechanism of operation- 2. Microsoft paint will be used by the students to construct the lac operon model with details on its various components 3. The soft copy of this model together with a video presentation by the students would be posted on Moodle.
  • ED403 Innovations in Learning Technologies and Professional Practice
  • Facilitating online learning activities
  • In order to facilitate online learning activities, the topic will be re-designed and offered in a blended mode instead of face to face.
  • The learning objective of this topic is to allow students to understand the structure, components and functions of the lac operon. At the end of the topic, students should be able to describe the mechanism through which the lac operon operates.
  • Preparing the online learning activities
  • Online learning website http://highered.mheducation.com/ sites/9834092339/student_view0/ chapter15/the_lac_operon.html
  • The learning activity consists of a video animation which students must observe in groups of three in order to understand and draw the operon using microsoft paint. Students will draw the operon model in their groups and submit it individually on Moodle.
  • Concept mapping and online quizzes
  • Formative Assessment 1. Concept Mapping 2. Online quizzes
  • Blended learning will allow students access to online resources which are not available during face to face sessions to observe the animations and learn at their own pace, while completing online learning activities and assessments.
  • The online learning resources will be from educational websites, such as McGraw Hills Biology. The links will be uploaded on Moodle for observing the animation. The quizes designed on Moodle will provide instant feedback on student scores.
  • Concept mapping can be done by students to provide a feedback of their understanding of the topic, followed by a short quiz to test their learning and identify problems in learning.
