The outbreak of COVID 19 has challenged us to adopt the so-called new normal of teaching and training in the institutions of high learning. We had to quickly adopt new ways of teaching and training. This included the hybrid model adopted by the University of Pretoria during our pig week from 14 to 18 September 2020.
Our porcine elective week program began on 14 September 2020. It was filled with interesting and very informative online through collaborate platform discussions, presentations and visits to pig farms. We are very grateful for this week as we are veterinary students with a special interest in intensive production.
