    OVERVIEW

    The module of Histology, in the context of the C.I. of Anatomy and Histology, aims to integrate the knowledge of "functional histology" and cell biology by aiming to provide students with knowledge about the organization of cells and human tissues with particular attention to the connection between morphology and function.

    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The study of normal human histology and human anatomy, which is mutually propedeutic, must allow for a level of knowledge of the tissues, apparatus and systems of the human body, a necessary premise for the optimal understanding of motor and sports activities in all stages of life.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    To Know structure, organization and function of different human tissues and morphological-functional characteristics of cells that compose them.

    EXPECTED LEARNING RESULTS
    Knowledge of investigation methods in cytology and histology.
    Knowledge of the terminology of the discipline.
    Knowledge of the subcellular, cellular and tissue structures of the human body

    During the last lessons of the course, students are given some tests to assess the knowledge acquired. A moment of discussion with the teacher on the results of the tests follows.

    TEACHING METHODS

    Frontal lecture

     

    Due to emergency situations that prevent the performance of the lessons in attendance, the lessons will be carried out through the Teams platform.

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Written (Cytology) and oral Oral (Histology).examination

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The exam is written for the part of Cytology (quiz questions) and oral for the part of Histology.

    The oral examination is always led by the holders of the course and has a duration of at least 30 minutes (typically 45 minutes). With these modes, given the long experience of examinations in the discipline, the commission is able to verify with high accuracy the achievement of learning outcomes When these are not reached, the student is invited to deepen the study and to take advantage of further explanation by the teacher.

     

    It is possible that the emergency situations prevent the students to taking part in the examination in attendance for the final evaluation. In this case, the Teams platform will be used.
