5.1. Methodological overview

5.1. Presentation of the global methodology



The learning process of this subject is based in all the next activities:


Theory. The program indicated for the subject will be developed in this activity, see point 5.3. This program will be previously known by the students with respect to the annual program and with respect to a guide book. All this will be complemented with other resources as CDs, typed sheets and triptychs.


Practice. Breed diagnosis, these lessons will be related with breed differentiation in the most important domestic species. Many of them will be prepared by the own students, always helped by the teachers of the subject.


Practice in classroom. About reproductive and productive problems.


Practice. Personal work about any theme related with the Ethnology: any breed, variety, breed group, and also about morphological aspects, social opinions and/or utility.


Practice. Management of 3 different species. In this on-farm lectures, the main morphological aspects and identification systems for each species will also be showed.


Animal fair.


Personal and continuous evaluation. This evaluation will be related with all the points related across the academic period. For example of that, small tests will be performed, they will be run in the own classroom, with evaluation at the moment and with a positive note for all the students with excellent results.


Animal Welfare

The learning group in this part of the course will use the following teaching resources:

-Lectures in the classroom

-Practices in the video room with digital video of our animal welfare experiments.

-Practices with animals in the experimental farm (welfare assessment in laying hens)

-Field studies in groups of four students. Data collection, data analysis, field report presentation.

-Case studies (home work) and resolution in classroom with the instructor (mainly focussed in animal welfare legislation application to real cases). 

-Tutorials in lab/office (mainly related to the design and realization of the field works)

-Seminar and debate with invited speaker (expert of some animal welfare hot topics).

-Course frame in the Digital Platform of the University Moddle2 (all material and students communication will be conducted in this digital platform).

-Theory evaluation (multiple choice-test) at the end of the course (weight 60%).

-Evaluation of home works, case studies and field work reports (weight 40%).

-Tutorials by e-mail with the instructor.

-Availability at the beginning of the Course Manual “Animal Welfare” (114 pp.), prepared by the responsible teacher, including all the material explained in the course in class, actualized every year with the most recent material related to animal welfare topics in Europe. The manual contain all the recommended literature used in the elaboration of the manual. This manual will be mainly useful for those students with difficulties to attend the theory classes, complemented with tutorial by e-mail or in the lab/office.

-Availability at the beginning of the course of the PDF version of the Power Point presentations of the Instructors (in the digital platform).

-Availability of all case studies to be solved by the student in hard copy and pdf, before the case resolution in class with the instructors.

-At the end of the course and after exams, students will be able to evaluate the course and the instructors. This evaluation will be realized using the digital platform of the University (ATENEA). 

5.2. Learning tasks


The program offered to help the student to get the results includes the next programmed activities:

-Theory in classroom.

-Practical lesson in classroom.

-Practical lessons on-farm.

-Personal work.


Animal Welfare

All classes and activities will be programmed at the beginning of the course (Animal Welfare Course will start in early February –spring term-). Please, see groups and calendars in the web site of the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine, and check periodically for possible small changes during the course.
