Microbiology for Teachers


This course will introduce you to the major concepts, principles and applications of microbiology. You will learn what microorganisms are, how they function and how they are important in your life. Microbiology for Teachers was designed such that the lectures introduce topics that are considered in greater detail in the laboratory, thus allowing the laboratory exercises to reinforce and extend the lectures. Initially, you will learn about the structure and function of individual microorganisms, including their growth and reproduction. Next, you will learn about the metabolic diversity of microorganisms in relation to their interactions with their environment, which encompasses their physical surroundings and other living things. Finally, you will learn about the interactions of microorganisms with humans, including industrial microbiology and selected infectious diseases. Throughout the course, both the beneficial and the harmful aspects of microorganisms will be considered.
