Active engagement requirements
In this unit, your early active engagement will be monitored in the following two ways and assessed as part of assessment task 1.
- In your Professional Portfolio of Evidence document your unique contribution to developing community strengths by identifying an activity or action you took, the issue addressed and the strength/s developed through your service (you may include both your own and others strengths). Such activity may include planned, incidental or serendipitous contributions at any time over the previous semesters of the Bachelor of Nursing course. Try to consider contributions beyond your Professional Experience Practice. For example, do you undertake any community voluntary work?
- MyLO Survey: Completion of The VIA Survey of Character Strengths, a simple self-assessment that takes less than 15 minutes and provides a wealth of information to help you understand your core characteristics. Your results are to be submitted via a Survey in MyLO. Further instructions and the link to the VIA Survey of Character Strengths is in the week one MyLO learning material.
