This project will produce two innovations that will directly address feedback from the VDPAM
Student Advisory Board regarding course structure and content in the veterinary professional curriculum. The students have requested a more flexible schedule for the pre-requisite course (VDPAM 310) taught in the 3rd year and more case context in that course and others in the curriculum consistent with cases encountered in the fourth year courses and during practice after graduation. To address this, we chose two integrated solutions: a) convert VDPAM 310 to a flipped course with recorded lectures outside and interactive case examples to solve during class and b) a standardized case collection that captures high quality teaching cases in multimedia format for use in courses throughout the college.
