The PG Cert/Dip/MSc Diabetes Care, Education and Management is a student-centred work-based learning course that combines face to face teaching supported by online study materials, and an assessed work-based project. Each module draws upon the student’s own professional experience as a basis for examining module themes. After initial lectures and group activities introducing key concepts, students develop a project based on their work settings. Undertaking and reflecting upon the experience and outcome of the project forms the basis of the written assessment.
Students also use an online learning environment for study. Through this, students access a range of resources e.g. study materials, case studies, useful links to relevant websites, online tutorials, discussion forums and a network of international library resources through the online University of Dundee library.
A dedicated support team is in place for students who can contact teachers and educational supervisors via email, or telephone for help with module selection, assignments and general study support.
