Teaching and Learning in Diabetes Education

Online Course - 2 Hours
Effective dates for CE credit: 8/23/2018 - 8/23/2021

Program Overview

This online course gives entry-level diabetes educators a fundamental understanding of how to approach teaching. Diabetes education is much more than transferring knowledge to people with diabetes—it must focus on individuals' coming away empowered to perform their own self-care. This 2-hour course discusses key teaching theory, methods, and strategies for diabetes educators to integrate into their practice—to help people with diabetes achieve their self-care goals.

This self-paced course can be accessed any time, and includes:

• Detailed multimedia lecture presentations
• Interactive exercises to reinforce learning
• Video case study with analysis illustrating the contributions of each member of the multidisciplinary care team
• Additional resources for continued learning
• Printable job aids
