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.
