FEDIP is delighted to announce the endorsement of the Systems Learning Byte Size course from the University of Edinburgh's Usher Institute.
This course has been adapted from the Systems Thinking in Health and Social Care elective of the university’s MSc Data Science for Health and Social Care.
This Byte Size Learning is a brief overview or a ‘taster’ of the full course.
In the module, you will consider how systems and Systems Thinking can be defined, and learn about some core concepts that you can apply straightaway in a workplace context to help you understand and work with complexity, uncertainty and change.
In this Byte Size Learning, you will:
· identify systems in day-to-day life or the workplace
· correctly use terminology to describe systems and their features
· describe some key features of Systems Thinking
· reflect on the potential value of applying Systems Thinking in your practice.
The Systems Learning Byte Size module joins a collection of other, excellent resources on the FEDIP Hub taken from the MSc Data Science for Health and Social Care. These include:
