Microbiology Concept Connection Cards

Microbiology Concept Connection cards are created to assist students in understanding connections within larger themes in Microbiology. This forces students to connect key terms to key concepts. Students will continuously build on concepts and reinforce those concepts by building on previous terms. The terms are organized in general themes, which include:

  • The Cell

  • Diversity

  • Metabolism

  • Genetics and Molecular

  • Tools and Control Methods

  • Clinical

Instructors can rearrange terms and columns to reflect the order content is taught over the course of the semester. This list is not exhaustive. Additional terms can be added, such as diffusion, osmosis, and active transport. The ultimate goal is to interconnect all themes by the end of the semester.
