2 x 2 hours of problem-based learning seminars; up to 5 hours of supporting classes, seminars and practicals; and 2 hours of team-based learning for 10 weeks of trimester. Two x 6 hours of symposia across the trimester
You will need to access substantial learning resources and experiences in CloudDeakin (Deakin’s online learning environment). Compliance with the Standards in computing, connectivity and student capability are a condition on your enrolment.
In this unit students will gain a foundation in the physical and biomedical sciences underpinning optometric practice. Students will engage in problem-based learning cases drawn from simple and common optometric conditions particularly those associated with developmental and refractive orders of vision. Classes, practical and seminars will be offered in support of the problem-based sessions. Some cases in ocular disease and therapy and systemic disorders of vision will also be covered. The physical and biomedical sciences will include anatomy, physiology, optical physics, pharmacology, pathology, immunology and microbiology. Symposia will introduce students to current topics in the public health domain of the vision sciences. Student learning will be consolidated through team-based learning.
