This course is being created in recognition of the importance of staff and student well-being and self-care in the health and social care sectors. Any individuals working in these contexts will be able to participate and benefit from the materials provided.

This course is aimed at teachers, learning technologists and anyone else who is interested in developing the key skills and knowledge to create video assets for courses. It will introduce the key components, considerations, and digital tools needed to produce engaging media for online learning, either in collaboration with learning design teams at the University or elsewhere.

This course provides an insight into animal welfare in the veterinary clinic, including how to recognise different welfare states, and provides helpful information to improve animal welfare in the clinic. The course will primarily focus on cats and dogs, with an introduction to niche or specialised clinical animal welfare in relation to exotics and large animals such as horses.

Background

 

The EDDIE 3 cluster was originally purchased in 2014 with a 5 year operating lifetime and maintenance. A typical cluster is comprised of three major components:

The Digital Library Programme has seen improved systems and processes involved in creating and storing digital content; increased amounts of created content result from this improvement. This creates a requirement for Library systems to keep up with this content in terms of storage availability; the quotas that have served us well till now are certain to grow rapidly. Systems affected support Digital Preservation, discovery and workflow.
