Swinburne University of Technology choose Myprogress to assess and support health sciences students on placement.
Based in Melbourne, Australia and ranked in the top 3% of universities in the world, Swinburne University of Technology has recently adopted mobile assessment app and ePortfolio, Myprogress, for assessing and supporting Health Sciences students on placement.
With hundreds of students working in challenging, remote clinical settings, with no reliable WiFi connection, the need for an ePortfolio platform to work completely offline to support the student placement experience, as well as assessment and feedback in these settings, became a priority for the university.
Co-designed with leading medical schools across the world, Myprogress was chosen by the School of Health Science, which covers Dietetics, Nursing, Physiotherapy, and Exercise and Sports Science, due to its flexibility and assessment workflows specifically developed to support medical and health sciences students.
Supporting students within Dietetics, Nursing, Physiotherapy, and Exercise and Sports Science, Myprogress will be used across all disciplines to assess competencies, professionalism and clinical skills through direct observation, provide verifiable sign off on competencies and skills, track progress remotely and build an ePortfolio of valuable feedback. For students within Nursing in particular, the platform will be used to support the Australian Nursing Standards Assessment Tool (ANSAT).
The partnership between Swinburne University of Technology and Myprogress makes Swinburne the 3rd Australian institution to currently use Myprogress, alongside Western Sydney University and Curtin University.
Tom Holland, Myprogress Product Manager:
"It’s been an exciting period in Australia for us and we are extremely happy to begin working with Swinburne University of Technology.
As the 3rd Australian institution to be using the Myprogress assessment tool, this announcement is a testament to MyKnowledgeMap’s recognition as a global leading solution for assessments of nursing and healthcare students.
We are looking forward to working with Swinburne to provide powerful student experiences within the School of Health Science to cover disciplines such as Dietetics, Nursing, Physiotherapy, and Exercise and Sports Science.”
