Education Innovation in Veterinary Training: E-learning Options in Southern Africa

H C Els, E-M Mostert

Abstract




Changing needs in education call for innovative ideas in veterinary education. The University of Pretoria has adopted a policy of flexible learning that makes provision for flexible learning opportunities as well as flexible delivery systems. The preferred mode(s) of instruction to be used by a lecturer will be determined by the content of a specific subject as well as the target student population. E-learning components such as web-based training and multimedia could be incorporated with the traditional modes of instruction. The implementation of e-learning has changed the roles and responsibilities of the lecturer as well as the student. The development of e-learning material is a dynamic process and guidelines applicable to the procedures as well as the compilation of a project team, will be discussed.
