Veterinary Education Symposium workshop: Bristol, 2014
Using the arts and humanities in veterinary education.
I would have been delighted to visit the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, Utrecht University, and to participate in the Veterinary Education Symposium 2018 which is being held there. However, with a few notable exceptions in the veterinary schools of Bristol, Edinburgh and Nottingham, there has been too little interest in the synergies between veterinary animal medical education and human animal medical education. I have participated actively in five of the recent seven Veterinary Education Symposia and I have explored the opportunities for both teaching and education research on an inter-professional basis. Examples of my participation include presentations on –
– Suicide by a dog? More than a bereavement scenario: an existential issue for veterinary education.
– Veterinary education and social media: “even if you teach it, they will not learn it”.
– Excellence in social accountability by a veterinary school: an oxymoron or a zeitgeist?
– Mistreatment, harassment and bullying of learners – part of real life learning experiences?

and in 2012: http://www.iainrobbe.com/news-veterinary-education-symposium/
Examples of workshops include –
– Using the arts and humanities in veterinary education.
– Improving learning experiences to counter mistreatment, harassment and bullying.
Regrettably there has been only limited progress and there appears to be no merit to pursuing these synergies through the Veterinary Education Symposium processes.
