Sobre o conteúdo

As you know mastitis is a very costly disease on dairies. It is a complex, multi-factorial health problem and, all around the world, a large number of scientists, and their graduate students, are conducting research on this disease.

For that reason, experts from more than 20 countries have decided to work together to produce this series of three MOOC, designed for graduate students, to give them the knowledge they need to initiate their research program. Of course, these MOOCs will also be useful for dairy practitioners, teachers, and for individuals that already have a solid scientific background, and are interested to learn on bovine mastitis.

This first MOOC (of a duration of 15 hours) covers the basic knowledge on the mammary gland and its response to infections. We will discuss, mammary gland anatomy and physiology, immune response, the role of genetics, and pathophysiology, or, if you prefer, the changes occurring in mammary tissues following an infection.

This MOOC will soon be followed by two others MOOCS, that will cover bovine mastitis epidemiology and diagnostic, and finally, mastitis control.

We hope this series of course will answer all your questions and will be useful for your professional development.

Welcome to the first MOOC on "The mammary gland and its response to infection"!

Pré-requisito

This course is designed primarily for graduate students conducting a master or doctoral project on udder health. The objective is to equip them with the knowledge they will need to conduct their research.

This course could also be useful for veterinarians, as they provide an opportunity to deepen the basics and access to cutting-edge knowledge for continuing education. The same applies to teachers in agriculture and animal health. Similarly, anyone with a scientific background and an interest in udder health will find high-level notions within the course.

Université de Montréal

L'Université de Montréal (UdeM) est l'un des quatre établissements d'enseignement supérieur de Montréal au Québec. Elle est l'une des dix grandes universités du Canada (la deuxième en terme du nombre d'étudiants) et parallèlement la plus importante au Québec pour le nombre d'étudiants ainsi que pour la recherche.

EDUlib

EDUlib a été lancé par HEC Montréal en octobre 2012 avec comme objectif de rendre disponible au plus grand nombre de personnes une formation universitaire de haute qualité en français dans le domaine de la gestion. EDUlib est maintenant une initiative conjointe de l’Université de Montréal et de ses deux Écoles affiliées, HEC Montréal et Polytechnique Montréal. L’objectif demeure d'offrir au plus grand nombre de personnes une formation universitaire de haute qualité en français mais dans les différents domaines de connaissances des trois partenaires. Les cours d’EDUlib sont calqués sur ceux offerts en présentiel. Ils sont donnés par les mêmes professeurs et les connaissances transmises sont de calibre universitaire. Le format du cours et la périodicité changent, évidemment, mais pas la qualité d’enseignement.

EDUlib est une initiative d’éducation populaire qui ne mène pas à l’obtention d’un diplôme universitaire. Toutefois, il est prévu qu’une attestation couronnera les efforts des participants qui auront réussi les quiz ou tests prévus dans le cours. Les cours ont été conçus pour être largement accessibles, dans un effort concerté de diffusion de la connaissance.
