Innovative web-based distance learning

01/05/05 | Education | Allison Coull

Nursing management of leg ulceration is a skilled activity requiring the integration of both practice and theoretical knowledge. Access to specialist education programmes is essential to gain knowledge for practice. Many existing programmes require significant attendance or offer distance learning, which can be isolating. The University of Stirling has developed a unique 8-month course which utilises interactive learning and teaching methods to overcome this. It combines minimal attendance with web-based delivery, and may be of interest to educators, practitioners, and prospective students.
