Australia/NZ SIG for those using or wanting to use PebblePad for Work Integrated Learning (WIL)

Thursday 19th April 2018 AEST

Thursday 19th April 2018Thursday 19th April 2018

Inaugural WIL SIG AU/NZ

About the online SIG

PebblePad is used extensively to support WIL (in the form of practicums, placements, internships, industry projects, simulations, etc) across many discipline areas. While each area may have their unique requirements and challenges, there are also a lot of commonalities. This SIG aims to provide organisations across Australia and New Zealand who use, or would like to use, PebblePad for WIL with an opportunity to network and share practice.

The April meeting will be our first and all who register will be invited to share their ideas for topics to be addressed in future meetings. We will spend part of the meeting on a key topic, and also discuss how the SIG will operate – frequency and timing of meetings, who will facilitate, where we will collate and share information, etc. We will record the meeting so that anyone who is unable to attend can still have an opportunity to listen to the session and contribute to the conversation.

Book your place at the upcoming SIG below and please share this page with colleagues who may also be interested in attending.

A showcase of new approaches to assessment using PebblePad

Wednesday 14th March 2018 AEST

Wednesday 14th March 2018Wednesday 14th March 2018

Marlene Daicopoulos, ePortfolio Learning Support Officer, School of Health Professions, Murdoch University
Imalda Devaparanam, Assistant Clinical Lecturer, School of Biomedical Sciences, Monash University
Belinda Flanagan, Lecturer, School of Nursing, Midwifery and Paramedicine, University of the Sunshine Coast

About the webinar
Assessment can involve additional challenges when learners are off site, being assessed by external assessors or needing immediate feedback following direct observation. This webinar will look at three approaches to clinical assessment using PebblePad:

Custom templates in PebblePocket
To complement the student clinical portfolio in PebblePad, Nursing at Murdoch University has created templates, including daily time sheets, that can be completed and signed offline while the student is on site, using PebblePocket on smart devices.

Student selected assessors
While on clinical placement, Radiation Therapy students from Monash University select their own clinical assessors to share assessment items with. In addition to other benefits, this has enabled streamlining of the clinical assessment process as well as the efficient monitoring of student clinical progress.

Assessor initiated assessment
In Paramedicine at the University of the Sunshine Coast, practical assessment is conducted via Objective Structured Clinical Examinations (OSCEs). Assessors use iPads during OSCE assessment to complete a PebblePad Feedback template. Learners receive their feedback on the spot, both orally and via the feedback template which appears in their PebblePad asset store.

Geoff Rebbeck, Canterbury Christchurch University
Shane Sutherland, Chief Mischief Maker, PebblePad

About the webinar:

In this webinar, Geoff Rebbeck will return to the 6 Frontiers of Learning which were referenced by Sarah Tutton in the August 2017 webinar on ‘Using technology to support reflection on individual learning journeys.’ Geoff will explore the frontiers in more detail, discussing along the way their relationship to eportfolios.

The frontiers being explored are:

  1. Using technology to support and manage unique learning journeys
  2. Course design that works around Reflective learning
  3. Showing Digital literacy-in-action, leading to positive online reputations
  4. Teaching the employability mindset, including self-employment
  5. Focussing all learning, and publishing its accomplishments in personal learning spaces
  6. Using technology to capture and present soft skills - the rounded person.
