On this website we collected teaching modules for basics in microscopy which were developed by GerBi-GMB members. Feel free to use the teaching modules as input for your own teaching, and let us know, if there are questions.
The basic teaching unit is called a module, covering a defined set of topics, e.g. ‘basic microscope optics’ or ‘fluorescence’. While modules generally cover topics exclusively, some overlap may occur, such as PMTs covered in ‘confocal’ and ‘multi-photon’ modules. Several modules can be combined to a course to include all topics which are required to master a specific microscopic technique. For example, a course for confocal microscopy will include a module on confocality but also modules on fluorescence, basic microscopy, etc.
The recommended student:teacher ratio is given as S/T: [optimal]([maximum])
For the practical parts there is also a student:instrument ratio given as S/I: [optimal]([maximum]); instruments can be microscopes, analysis workstations, laboratory benches, etc.
