A/Prof Janice Lloyd teaches behaviour, husbandry and welfare science to all 5 years of the undergraduate veterinary science degree program. A/Prof Lloyd’s research interests are human-animal relationships with a focus on service dogs, companion animal behaviour problems, and the behaviour and welfare of various species. A/Prof Lloyd also has a special interest in veterinary curricular development, computer-aided learning, scenario-based learning, and questionnaire design and analysis. She led a team that won the overall JCU citation for outstanding contributions for student learning in 2017, and she went on to receive a national award for teaching future veterinarians to incorporate 'low stress handling' techniques into their everday practice.

A/Prof Lloyd is acknowledged as a Category 1 research grant recipient (OLT ID13-2833 - Innovation & Development). Along with an Animal Welfare and Ethics scientist from each of Australasia’s eight veterinary schools, she was awarded $480K of  funding from the Office of Learning and Teaching  from January 2014 to December 2015 for a project entitled: ‘Nationally shared curriculum resources for veterinary undergraduate learning in animal welfare and ethics'.

Nationally Shared Curriculum Resources for Veterinary Undergraduate Learning and Teaching in Animal Welfare and Ethics

Indicative Funding
$22,000 over 2 years (administered by University of Sydney)
This project proposes the development of a new nationally shared curriculum for Animal Welfare and Ethics (AWE) that meets student and employer needs and provides the basis for ongoing personal and professional development for students. Veterinary curricula in Australasia must reflect society?s use of animals and interest in their welfare. Undergraduate education typically focuses on animals and their welfare to develop veterinary professionals as scientific advocates for animals in many contexts, but sometimes with disparate teaching of professional, animal and veterinary ethics. This project aims to produce a cohesive, evidence-based approach to teaching and practicing AWE to undergraduate veterinary students, preparing them for the societal context within which they will be veterinary professionals.
