Teaching Goal and New Creations

The overall goal in teaching is to lay a solid foundation in the knowledge of canine anatomy for the first year veterinary students, and to cultivate in them “self-directed learning”, “life-long learning”, and “critical-thinking” skills.

  • Created two Web Sites in an effort to promote the environment for the “self-directed learning” skills in students
