Web-based distance learning programme for degree-level tissue viability education

01/11/08 | Education | Wendy Davies, Samantha Holloway

This article describes a 16-week degree-level web-based distance learning programme provided by Cardiff University. The unique design of the programme provides students with flexibility when choosing tissue viability modules, and the remote nature of the course also allows students to develop a learning package to suit their individual needs. This format ensures that geography is not a limiting factor. The course provides a foundation for those wishing to continue their studies at higher degree level, and the web-based nature of the programme also develops transferable skills, particularly in relation to virtual learning.
