developed the modules and how difficult
The HEC team
consists of academics who have taught nutrition
to medical students and dietetics students
at Australian Universities for over 15 years.
They also have experience in teaching medical
students remotely via the internet. They
have distilled this experience and knowledge
into the modules. Each module therefore
contains expert and authoritative information
and practical advice about healthy eating
through the use of slide shows, audio, online
surveys, quizzes and plain text for those
of you who prefer to print the information
off to read at another time. The key points
(take home messages) are summarised on slides
and the material is presented in a simple
to understand format.
