Abstract

Introduction: The introduction of a novel open-source approach to students getting to grips with how academic a resource is: the 'fishscale of academicness' Methods: Undergraduate veterinary students were introduced to the 'Fishscale of Academicness' as a pre-learning item in a flipped classroom model. Students were assigned different veterinary educational websites and given in-workshop time to develop their own sea-creatures that help explain the level of 'academmicness' of each website. They emailed these creatures to the facilitator, who uploaded them to a seascape. The student groups took turns presenting their website and corresponding sea creature to the rest of the cohort. These oral presentations were recorded and uploaded also with the creatures. Results: Although initially reluctant, students all participated and anecdotally seemed to enjoy the process. Key findings and Implications for Education: A method exists for introducing students to the concepts and language around what makes a resource more or less academic.
