Course objectives
At the end of the course students will develop of knowledge of characteristics of divisions, classes, selected species cyanobacteria, algae and fungi. Utilize the knowledge gained at elementary school.
Learning outcomes
- the student uses the correct professional biological terminology and is able to select concepts and phenomena corresponding to the level of primary school pupils; - the student selects and uses model organisms in the teaching to document selected concepts and phenomena; - the student works with biological material and processes it in the form of didactic means for the needs of primary school.
