Media Creation Toolkit

Procedures and tips for the development of digital media

Dietitians of Canada writes in the Vision 2020 report*, that “Dietitians lead on new frontiers in the application of food and nutrition science and technology from the farm gate to the table, as team members, policy planners, practice- based researchers, educators, facilitators and managers.” 

The creation of digital media plays a role in this leadership. In order to stay ahead of the online nutrition noise, dietitians are increasingly using social media and online methods to connect with the Canadian population to provide evidence-based nutrition recommendations. As a result, dietetic students must be prepared to use a variety of technology mediums in their practice to enhance patient/client communication and education. This page will aid you in selecting and creating your educational media piece, and provide important considerations to ensure a quality end-product. 

Students working together using technology and paper resources

This page was created by students that worked on teaching and learning enhancement projects and used media extensively. It will be a continually developing and improving resource for students and professionals.
