The College of Veterinary Medicine’s Education Center (in the area formerly known as the “Reading Room”) serves as a physical venue to support the educational activities within our college. We are located in room V1-110 of the Veterinary Academic Building.
The Education Center represents our college’s commitment to providing our students with an exceptional facility to support instruction, and a recognition of the growing importance in leveraging electronic resources to support our curriculum.
Our Computer Lab is a collaborative learning space that supports team-based, and problem-based learning activities. Instructors are be able to switch and share screens between instructors and students, and create active learning exercises. The seating arrangement encourages small group interaction.
