Teaching veterinary microbiology through a combination of lectures and case-based practical classes

Research output: Other contribution to conferencePresentation onlypeer-review

Abstract

Veterinary microbiology is logically sequenced through pre-clinical, para-clinical and clinical subjects across the curriculum. Fundamental concepts mastered in first year, are expanded with increased complexity in third year. Practical classes provide “hands-on” learning that reinforces the lectures. Veterinary microbiology is then integrated with other disciplines and problem-solving skills are acquired through authentic problem-based learning sessions and case-based learning microbiology practical classes. Small-groups facilitate development of social and communication skills as well as self- and peer-evaluation. As learning evolves from teacher-centred to student-directed feedback shows the students become more engaged and confident. Clinical rotations further deepens student understanding of infectious disease.
