Planning for the Virtual Exchange: Story-boarding and something in common with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck
The plans for the RLO workshop are taking shape. At the recent Skype planning activity the team identified the importance of making the day both fun and productive for staff and students. The Health and e-Learning Media Team have recommended that we use a storyboard approach to capture ideas about creating a Reusable Learning Object from the NMC Code . Storyboards are a really good way to engage in some really “off the cuff” thinking about a serious subject from an alternative perspective. The characters and surrounding scenery in cartoon animations commence life as a series of storyboards. It’s great to think we have something in common with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. Our visitors from BCU will also have the opportunity to explore the campus, the lakeside and the park areas.

Things are moving at a pace. Staff and student nurses from Nottingham and BCU are meeting Friday 12th June in the Sir Clive Grainger building. Using a storyboard approach we plan to create a Re-usable Learning Object (RLO) based on the recently updated Nursing and Midwifery Council’s Code of Conduct. The RLO will become part of the virtual exchange content. I am delighted to welcome to the team Gerri Nevin, Senior Academic at Birmingham City University.
Fern, the team here at BCU are really looking forward to the 12th June….a great opportunity for collaboration; sharing ideas and resources. The virtual exchange not only offers our students the opportunity to grow personally and professionally but I feel sure the same will be true of colleagues at Nottingham and BCU.
Hello Fern, we are looking forward to the 12th June. This is a great opportunity for students to share their experiences as student nurses in two different cities. Thank you for your very warm welcome.
