2015: Development of 4D farms to improve student learning and safety

Presenter: Stuart Barber (University of Melbourne, Australia).

This session is relevant for anyone running field trips or site visits.

Stuart will explore examples of how we can improve veterinary and agricultural student learning and safety on farms through the use of novel 4D on-line farms.

Recent significant changes in veterinary student demographics, access to animal enterprises, biosecurity and environmental health and safety regulations has resulted in significant shifts in delivering veterinary and agricultural education in animal management and production. Working collaboratively, with funding from the Office of Learning and Teaching, we have developed eleven high-resolution, panoramic four-dimensional (4D) virtual farms from across Australasia. These 4D farms and associated learning resources will support student learning before, during and after student visits to properties. This presentation will provide an overview of the material, its current and potential use within veterinary and agricultural curricula including its use in student assessment.

This session will cover the background and goals of the project and include demonstration of the website and associated learning modules.
