Talks

Open events: these are open to staff and students within and outside the Vet School. There is no need to book, just come along.

Description

Speaker: Dr Jill MacKay, Research Fellow (Veterinary Medical Education)

In this talk, Jill will give an overview of the PTAS-funded project on lecture recording. Lecture recording is the practice of digitally capturing multiple aspects of a lecture such as the auditory, visual and discursive content. Lecture recording has been used inconsistently at the R(D)SVS in recent years; the new project to roll the technology out more completely provides a unique opportunity to plan an in depth mixed–methods research study to inform the wider community and contribute to the literature on the subject. Crucially, both the lecturers’ attitudes to the technology, the students’ uptake of the available resources and, of course, the technological aspects of lecture recording need to be considered.

Jill will discuss how the study aims to address some of the gaps in our understanding of how lecture recording affects both learning and teaching. The goal is to understand how lecture recording is taken up by staff and students alike over a longer period of time to inform ongoing educational debate, staff development and ultimately promote best practice as the technology becomes embedded across the institution.

Speaker: Clare Button, Project Archivist, Library & University Collections

We have some really fantastic resources in the Library's Centre for Research Collections (CRC).  These include Dick Vet archive material (such as old case ledgers), historic images and films, physical objects (such as pills, veterinary instruments, a death mask and Charnock Bradley's christening robe), rare books and digital collections (including the Roslin historic slide collection).

Join Clare in this talk to hear more about the collections and think how these could be used in teaching.

Description

In this talk, Hazel Marzetti and Daphne Loads (IAD) will help raise awareness of LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender plus) experiences. There will be opportunities to reflect on and consider teaching and learning from a LGBT+ perspective. The aim is to promote an inclusive and supportive culture on campus, where everyone can be themselves.

Description

For the first meeting of the academic year, we are inviting everyone to talk briefly about their favourite conference over the past year. 

We'd like to know, in three minutes or less:

  • What conference it was?
  • Where?
  • What are the main themes or areas of interest for anyone thinking about attending in the future?
  • What the benefits of this conference might be in improving teaching and learning practice at the vet school?

Probably the most important question is whether the conference catering was good - we'll leave that one up to you to share!
