Tapped for expertise in education
UTCVM faculty Dr. India Lane (left), professor of internal medicine and associate dean for academic and student affairs, and Dr. Misty Bailey (right), assistant professor of practice and curriculum and assessment coordinator, have been named Founding Distinguished Experts for the international Academy of Veterinary Educators (AVE).
The AVE is a nonprofit educational organization forming a community of practice that will be focused on veterinary education and working toward elevating the discipline of veterinary medical education. Lane and Bailey were chosen for their accomplishments in inspiring, connecting, guiding, and encouraging learners in their respective fields.
They join two- dozen other founding members and will help refine and finalize the credentialing process for AVE. According to the AVE, “This cohort of experts was not chosen lightly,” and was established with the idea that “education is a broad topic that includes fields beyond traditional classroom or clinical instruction, but also education coordination, curriculum design, outreach, and so much more.”
