Learning Experiences, Proceedings of the Symposium on Veterinary Medical Education (5th, June 18-21, 1972).
Welser, J. R., Ed.
The primary purpose of the Symposium was to assist the veterinary medical educator in becoming a more effective and efficient teacher. The main focus was placed on the educational process and on newer ideas in education, with the expectation that application could be made to the totality of veterinary medical education. The Fifth Symposium was planned as a minicourse in design, presentation, and evaluation of learning experiences. The topics of minicourses, multi-media instruction, and mastery learning were emphasized. The meeting attempted to combine the features of a symposium (dining and free exchange), a conference (presentations by outstanding authorities in the field of education, media, and evaluation), and a workshop (individual participation and contribution). The major presentations are published in this volume, and appendices provide a statement of the participant objectives, a list of the program contributors, and the results of a post-symposium questionnaire.
