Histology Affordable Learning Project

(Open Veterinary Histology on Pressbooks)

The Office of Teaching and Learning worked with a team led by Dr. Ryan Jennings and Dr. Chris Premanandan during Summer of 2017 on an in-house textbook that is currently being used in the VME-I Veterinary Histology Course. Entitled Veterinary Histology, the textbook currently consists of 14 chapters, spanning from basics such as the cell itself, to specialized structures such as the cardiovascular system and the eye. Students are able to access this free textbook on the web while online, or download a portable file to any device (phone, tablet, laptop) to review offline; they can also choose to print any part of the book. Writing this textbook allowed the team to take ownership over not only the selection of content, but also how the content is presented and used in the histology course.
