The Place of Animals in Science: Hidden Costs/Hidden Potential

Panel Discussion — Everyone Welcome

6:00-8:30 pm, April 22, 2015
Duncan McArthur Hall, Room A343
Refreshments served

The reigning paradigm of science education views animals as objects to be manipulated, analyzed and experimented upon. Evidence suggests that this paradigm alienates some students, and excludes alternative perspectives on human-animal relations. This workshop will explore these hidden costs of the current paradigm, and will examine options for a more humane and inclusive science education. A hands-on demonstration of humane alternatives such as virtual dissection software will be provided.
