The nursing department at Murdoch University recently received an innovation honour at the 2018 Australian Awards for University Teaching.
Awarded for their e-portfolio, the team's platform prepares Murdoch graduates for professional practice by allowing them to construct, explore and discuss real-world problems in the context of their individual levels of nursing knowledge and skills development.
The team behind the e-portfolio – Associate Professor Caroline Nilson, Dr Martin Hopkins, Prue Andrus, Helen Dugmore and Cormac Norton – won in the Innovation in Curriculum Design and Pedagogy Practice category.
Nilson said the award was richly deserved.
“It recognises the hard work and commitment that the team have devoted to embedding e-portfolio learning across the whole of the Bachelor of Nursing course,” she said.
Nursing Review spoke with Nilson about the award and why the e-portfolio is important for a nurse's development.
