Educational Goals and Learning Outcomes

Evolution - antibiotic resistance in bacteria

Educational Goals:

  • Utilze scientific method to demonstrate evolution in a population of cells
  • Work with bacteria using sterile techniques
  • Communicate scientific information.

Learning Outcomes - Students will:

  • Describe experimental design used to select for drug-resistant bacteria.
  • Apply evolutional theory to antibiotic resistance in clinical settings.
  • Analyze experimental data to determine whether bacteria have evolved over time.
  • Construct logically constistent explaination for the origin and expansion of antibiotic resistance in bacterial population.
  • Evaluate statements related to evolution vs. creationism using experimental evidence.
