Producing a "Policy" Video
From Joe Bell
Fern Todhunter set out to achieve a "light touch" to help students learn and understand mandatory professional standards. A workshop for staff and students from Nottingham and Birmingham Universities led to ideas for an online learning activity. In collaboration with learning technologists from the University of Nottingham's Health E-learning and Media Team (HELM), the group developed a learning object unpacking the standards for professional behaviour. The main content is two films of student nurses acting out good and bad behaviours. The subsequent sections require participants to answer a number of questions about the films which then link back to a professional code of conduct. Situated in open access, the resource has proved to be a popular on a global scale. In delivering this level of return on investment, the value of these kinds of resources for professional learners cannot be understimated.
