The College of Veterinary Medicine’s Summer Teaching Institute will be held Friday, July 22, for faculty, residents, interns and graduate students, as well as colleagues from other medical-affiliated academic programs. Dr. India Lane, DVM, MS, EdD, DACVIM, who is currently associate vice president for Academic Affairs and Student Success at the University of Tennessee, will lead the day-long session.

Dr. Lane will discuss what is known about the learning process and how this knowledge can shape curricular and instructional design and practice.  During the workshops, participants will learn how to use Bloom’s Taxonomy and Miller’s Pyramid to set goals and objectives at the appropriate level for the learner and will practice developing objectives relevant to their own courses.  In another session, using provided examples and guides, participants will have an opportunity to practice developing assessment methods that align with their objectives.
