JMICAWE and SRUC visited two Universities in New Delhi, India in November 2016 to discuss post-graduate education in animal welfare. Cathy Dwyer and Marie Haskell visited the Indira Gandhi National Open University (IGNOU), the Peoples’ University in India, which provides a wide range of accessible, open and distance learning courses for students across India. These are provided by written materials, and dedicated TV and Radio channels, all broadcast from their impressive studios. The University are developing a course in animal welfare and we will be working with them to develop materials for teaching postgraduates: veterinarians, animal scientists and others. Whilst at IGNOU we recorded a short radio broadcast to describe what animal welfare science is and the ways that we try to develop the evidence base to understand what animals need for a good life. We also presented a seminar at the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) to students, faculty and NGOs to describe animal behaviour and welfare, and animal cognition, motivation and learning.
