Veterinary Education (MSc)

The Veterinary Education programme is designed to facilitate the development of staff who undertake a relatively small range of teaching and learning support activity. This veterinary masters programme is ideal for early career researchers with some teaching responsibilities, PhD students, staff new to teaching with part-time academic responsibilities, staff who support academic provision such as learning technologists, learning developers, library staff and staff who have a demonstrator or laboratory technician role. On successful completion of this part of the programme, graduates automatically become an Associate of the Higher Education Academy (AHEA). On successful completion of the PGCert, graduates automatically become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (FHEA). On successful completion of the programme, you will be able to: evaluate educational theories, methods and practice which can be applied to veterinary education; develop, design and deliver courses and programmes using a wide range of appropriate course development and delivery tools; appraise curriculum design and models to ensure that teaching methods comply with standards and quality appropriate to the level of skill development; select and use appropriate assessment and evaluation strategies to ensure that learning outcomes are met; identify, critically assess and address the emerging needs of the training requirements to match the demands of the local provision; adopt new teaching technologies to maximise skill development; be a reflective and self-evaluative practitioner; critically appraise research in veterinary and related educational fields, and develop skills to undertake qualitative and quantitative research using appropriate methodologies; continue to develop independent and lifelong learning skills to promote your own personal and professional development as a veterinary educator, researcher and leader.
