MARK DISTRIBUTION AND EXAMINATION DATES

EXAMS will be combination of multiple choice, fill in the blank, short answer
questions. Laboratory Exercise In the laboratory, students will perform assigned exercises that are designed to introduce students to the practical side of the cell biology. The exercises are designed to allow the students to get hands on experience with a variety of instruments and equipments. The experiments in the course are well established methods in the field. Students will perform experiments in a group of three hence it is necessary to form lab groups amongst themselves. Since equipments are limited most of the labs are done in rotation. Each group is assigned a number and will simply follow the sequence of lab exercises listed for that group member. At the conclusion of the lab portion of the course, students will be tested of both theoretical and practical aspects of the lab exercise. The results and analysis of the experiments will be written up in a series of short assignments that are to be handed in either at the end of the scheduled lab period or in the following lab. The lab sessions are held in Room 308 Lockhart hall. The lab manual is available as a PDF file that is linked to the WebCT. Students are responsible for printing the manual.

ACADEM IC REGULATIONS AND POLICIES


It is your responsibility to be familiar with the information on Academic Regulations and Policies of the 2012-13 Calendar which can be found on the Universitys website http://www.uwinnipeg.ca/index/cms-filesystemaction/pdfs/calendar/RegulationsandPolicies.pdf . This section covers classroom regulation, grading, transcripts, challenge for credit, academic standing, student discipline (academic and non-academic misconduct), appeals including grade appeals, University Policies and Codes, graduation. A summary of important information regarding Academic Misconduct follows: Forms of Academic Misconduct: Plagiarism: includes presenting other peoples published or unpublished work in part or as a whole as your own. This includes material from lab manuals, essays, journal articles, books, etc. Plagiarism also refers to submitting the same work in more than one course without both instructors permission and to the situation where two or more students submit identical (or nearly identical) work for evaluation when the work was to be completed individually (p 9- 10).

Cheating: includes copying another persons answer on a test, communicating with another person during a test or exam, consulting unauthorized sources(incl. written and electronic sources), obtaining a copy (all or part) of a test/exam/assignment before it is officially available, purchasing tests, essays or other assignments and submitting the work as your own (p 9). Improper Academic/Research practices include: fabricating or falsifying results, using other peoples research findings without permission, misrepresenting research results or methods, referring to non-existent sources or investigators, contravening the Universitys Policy and Procedures On Research Integrity (p 9). Obstructing academic activities of another person; for example interfering with another persons access to pertinent resources or information to gain academic advantage (p 9). Impersonation: both impersonation of another individual or allowing someone to impersonate you (p 9). Falsification or Modification of an Academic Record: including tests, transcripts, letters of permission, etc (p 9). Aiding and Abetting Academic Misconduct (p 9).

Penalties for Academic Misconduct (p 9-10): Can include, but are not limited to: Written warning Lower or failing grade on an assignment or test Lower or failing grade in a course Denial of admission or readmission to the University Forfeiture of University awards or financial assistance Suspension from the University for a specified period of time Withholding or rescinding a UW degree, certificate or diploma Expulsion from the University

Procedures: All allegations of academic misconduct must be reported initiating a process which involves several steps. These include procedures involving the instructor of the course in which the misconduct is alleged to have occurred, the Departmental Review Committee, and the Senate Academic Misconduct Committee. See pages 10 through 14 for a detailed description of the procedures. These pages also outline the Appeals process regarding Academic Misconduct.

VOLUNTARY W ITHDRAW AL
**You must formally withdrawal from a course. If you simply stop going to classes, you may receive an F on your transcript and loss of tuition credit.
