Biophotonics is an emerging field. Recent technological advances have allowed important contributions to research in infectios and age-dependent diseases. Applications of Biophotonic technologies have increased our understanding and improved the care and control of such diseases. This lecture will provide you with fundamental insights in biophotonic technologies including also a very basic introduction into the biology of cells, microbes and important chemical and biological interactions.
We are aware of differing learing environments and strategies, and we want to provide you with good possibilities for learning. For this reason, we decided to offer this lecture and seminar in hybrid form. We plan to give the initial 7 (out of 11) lectures in presence + live streaming (via zoom). The last four (about advanced and superresolution microscopy) will be discussed in presence + live stream. Video records of all lectures will be made available via moodle.
The E-learing concept for this lecture aims at meeting your different educational backgrounds. Pre-lecture tasks (≈ 30 min work each) will be provided by us via moodle in advance of each lecture unit. The aim is to prepare basics for the units for better understanding. The content of these pre-lecture tasks will also be related to the topics covered by the exam. For the last 4 units, the Pre-lecture task will be watching the recorded lecture and answering a few questions. We expect you to upload answers to a few questions which we will provide along with the pre-lecture tasks. The answers will not be graded, however, uploading them is a requirement for permission to the exam
• Pre-lecture tasks will be available via moodle one week before each unit.
• The lecture pdfs and recorded videos will also be provided via moodle.
• Please contact Dr. Daniela Täuber (firstname.lastname@example.org) in case you cannot access the moodle class (we will fill content to the moodle class in the first week of April).
• We will (again) provide an E-wall via padlet for the lecture for summaries and further off-line questions (linked also in moodle).
The other requirement for permission to the exam is providing a presentation in the associated seminar.
We wish you a good start into the summer term - stay healthy, we will try our best too!
