Abstract

The use of animals in science teaching can create an environment which enhances learning outcomes, providing opportunities for students to add value by engaging with authentic experiences, but also offering the chance to explore the ethical issues surrounding the use of animals in teaching, learning and research. This paper describes the benefits perceived by undergraduate Zoology students of exposure to animals in their learning. Results demonstrated that students value highly the chance to work with animals during their undergraduate careers, and that the nature of this appreciation changes and matures as they develop into more independent learners.
