What this paper is about
How this paper will be taught
This paper is taught through a combination of short prerecorded lectures, inperson workshops, laboratory classes and a one day fieldtrip. Students will learn the concepts of plant structure and function in the lectures, and then apply this knowledge in the weekly problembased workshops. Most of the workshops will be assessed, and hence it is critical that students watch the relevant lectures and attend the workshop each week. Workshops will occur every week on Thursday. The labs and field trip will be held roughly every second week (refer to the detailed weekly schedule below). Both the workshops and labs are essential parts of the course.
You will need to have
For the workshops, students should bring a device, preferably a laptop or tablet rather than a smartphone, for accessing information, taking notes and performing spreadsheet calculations.
For the labs, students will need
 labcoat
 covered shoes
 stationery  pens, pencil, basic scientific calculator, or a device for recording data and notes
 safety glasses
