This unit covers comprehensive perspectives of learning and teaching as well as more specific ways of promoting and engaging in health education and health promotion. It has been designed to encourage practitioners in the field of health care education to examine and reflect on their methods of teaching. The first section presents information about the broader theoretical issues of learning and teaching which may influence the teaching process. The relationship between these theoretical concepts and the practice of education is constantly emphasised. The last part of the unit facilitates those skills necessary for educators such as practitioners in the field of diabetes education to implement and evaluate health education programs.
