BIOH11005 - Introductory Anatomy and Physiology
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for BIOH11005 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

Introductory Anatomy and Physiology is a foundation unit that provides an introduction to the structure and function of the human body. On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to identify and describe the basic anatomy of the major organs of the body and discuss the function of each organ system in general terms. Students will understand basic chemical concepts that relate to living organisms and will be able to explain the general features of cells, tissues and organs. Students will also be able to explain the role and general features of homeostasis in the body.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Test 30%
2. Online Quiz(zes) 10%
3. Examination 60%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback Source Recommendation
Students like the way the course is organised and delivered, particularly the ability to re-watch the lectures and the prac demonstrations. Moodle course evaluation Review to see if the presentation can be improved even more.
Home Activity Tests - minor issues with loading for a few students. Moodle course evaluation Review and refine tests to avoid loading problem.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Describe the structural levels of organisation of the human body and the relationship that exists between them.
  2. Explain the principles of homeostasis in maintaining a stable internal environment.
  3. Describe the organisation, structure and function of cells, principal tissues and organs of the major body systems.
  4. Correctly use anatomical terminology and be able to name and describe anatomical structures and their functions.
