The Game of FARM Life

Animal Science 200 is the introductory course to Animal Agriculture at the University of Alberta. Students in Animal Science 200 are diverse in background and in career objectives. Typically about 20% of the class have farm animal experience and about 70% of the class are in a pre-veterinary program. This project will strive to provide students the opportunity to gain detailed background knowledge in one commodity area and introduce them to potential careers in agriculture that they may not have considered. Animal Science 200 has a strong track record in experiential learning with programs such as “There’s a Heifer in Your Tank” (2004-2014), “Rural Café” (2016-2016) and “What’s Behind the Barn Doors” (2017). In 2018, 120 students will be enrolled in Animal Science 200, with three lab sessions of 40 students per day. The teaching team will include the instructor (F. E. Robinson), a graduate teaching assistant and nine undergraduate “learning coaches” who have previously taken Animal Science 200. Nine commercial producers will be contacted to participate as program advisors to teams of students. Parkland country staff will assist in developing linkage with student groups and industry partners in Parkland County. This is a private event.
