Excellence in Animal Welfare teaching recognised by students at Edinburgh
The animal welfare team at Edinburgh has been involved with the design and delivery of innovative animal welfare education since 1990 when the Masters in Applied animal behaviour and welfare (MSc AABAW) was launched under the directorship of JMICAWE’s director, Professor Natalie Waran.
Since then the team have developed a variety of successful animal welfare taught programmes with the most recent being the PG Masters in International animal welfare, ethics and law, delivered on-line (MSc IAWEL) under the directorship of Dr Fritha Langford.
In 2007, Edinburgh University Students’ Association (EUSA) launched the EUSA Teaching Awards to recognise excellence in teaching, student support and the use of imaginative delivery methods. The Teaching Awards are entirely student-led, with students nominating online and a representative panel of students deciding who will win the final awards.
We are extremely proud to announce that Fritha, our inaugural Programme Director for the extremely popular MSc IAWEL has been nominated for the following awards:
1. Teaching with Technology –in recognition for the excellent online teaching she has given, as well as acknowledging the easy to follow layout of the online platform and the excellent quality of content for this ODL programme.
2. College of Veterinary Medicine Teaching Award –in recognition for the good teaching at Edinburgh University, through teaching animal welfare on the on-campus MSc AABAW and the online MSc IAWEL.
Congratulations Fritha on receiving both these nominations, and fingers crossed that you are short listed as a winner at the Ceremony on the 3rd April 2013.
