Project Goals

  • Develop a series of educational modules and case studies in Agricultural Animal Bioethics that complement and strengthen existing courses in animal welfare, contemporary issues and sustainable agriculture.
  • Provide educators with the pedagogical tools and support they need to effectively deliver the curriculum content.
  • To this end, workshops will be developed to 1) show faculty how to adapt and incorporate the materials to meet specific needs, and 2) explore innovative forms of content delivery and evaluation of undergraduate students.
