Adaptive eLearning for veterinary science – students as partners

The School of Veterinary Science, The University of Queensland has created a vertically and horizontally integrated, program-wide online adaptive eLearning tutorial suite. Each adaptive eLearning lesson was structured as a full veterinary consultation, from client arrival to patient discharge. The focus of each consultation was determined by the student’s progression through the Bachelor of Veterinary Science (BVSc) and the content was drawn from multiple courses. Academics developed a ‘Storyboard’ document, detailing the content of each step of the consultation, indicating question styles and the targeted feedback given for a variety of responses on each screen of the tutorial. These Storyboards then underwent student and academic review and modification and were then passed on to the ‘Lesson Designers’ (BVSc students) to transfer the storyboard into the Smart Sparrow adaptive eLearning platform. Once designed the interactive lessons were then tested for functionality and reviewed again by students and academics prior to deployment to the student cohorts. Having the involvement of both faculty and students was integral to the success of this project. Student involvement underpinned the pedagogical philosophy of this project in that they were part of the creation and review of interactive content, analysis and continuous improvement of the lessons created.
