BIL267/BIL280 - Science Documentary: Autism and Science Documentary: Music and the Brain are a civic engagement classes, team-taught with Jim Virga in School of Communications and Julia Dallman in Biology
This course brings together student citizens in both science and communication to collaborate on content intended to reach audiences on multiple platforms. Students will be exposed to both history and cutting edge research surrounding the selected topic. In addition to learning the neuroscience and genetics that underlie the topic, students will also connect with people in the local community – to lend these issues a face and context. Students will gather information from readings, experts at the University of Miami, and the larger South Florida Community. Students will work in teams to share expertise from their fields of study to generate content for community consumption. For a sample student documentary from 2015, see http://com.miami.edu/projects/speak-to-me
BIL360 - Comparative Physiology
This course examines how physiological processes support animal life. Students will learn about environmental challenges, homeostasis, metabolism, and how organ systems and organisms function together to promote survival. By comparing physiology across diverse animal taxa, students will gain a deeper understanding how physiology evolves to meet the demands of diverse environments.
