A Focus on Teaching: OpenLabyrinth

CVM faculty are not only excellent in research and service, but also innovative in teaching. A Focus on Teaching will feature faculty members who have adopted innovative instructional strategies to enhance student learning by engaging, motivating or challenging them in the learning process. In this video segment, Dr. Robert Larson, professor of production medicine and Coleman Chair of Food Animal Production Medicine in the Department of Clinical Sciences, will share OpenLabyrinth, a tool he has been using to foster case-based learning and students’ critical thinking skills.

Dr. David Renter establishes Center for Outcomes Research and Education

The CVM is establishing a new center of excellence that may be the first of its kind in animal health. On Feb. 25, the Center for Outcomes Research and Education, or CORE, will be publicly launched under the guidance of Dr. David Renter, a veterinary epidemiologist who will be the center's director. With a goal of improving effectiveness and efficiency in animal health care and its associated impacts on human health, the center will focus on demonstrating the value of animal health interventions — including treatment, prevention or diagnostic activities intended to improve health.

But, of course, the devil is in the details, and it falls upon the veterinarian to objectively evaluate the costs and benefits of prevention and control programs.
