This Learning and Teaching Guide has been produced to assist veterinary teaching staff in developing curricula that enhance communication and life skills. The Guide is a result of an Australian Learning and Teaching Council Collaborative Grant involving veterinary teaching staff from Murdoch University, The University of Queensland and The University of Sydney.
The project team aimed to improve the development and assessment of student competencies in professional communication and life skills. The development of communication skills during the undergraduate veterinary curriculum is an essential component of preparing graduates for veterinary practice and specifically responds to feedback from both veterinary registering boards and employers of veterinary graduates. Australian educators also listed ‘effective and empathic communication’ and ‘capacity for self-management and self-knowledge’ as desired graduate attributes within the veterinary professional life skill category (Collins & Taylor 2002).
