Murder Mystery

Murder Mystery e-Learning Induction For 2015

This September will see the 2015 intake of Nursing and Midwifery students taking part in a new interactive induction to e-Learning.  The online tool has been designed to encourage engagement with the university’s Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).  It is hoped the CampusMoodle Murder Mystery will bring a consistently high quality student experience as they navigage the VLE looking for clues.

The new online material includes pre-recorded screencasts, voiceovers and knowledge check quiz questions.  The induction has been designed by School e-Learning Adviser Gavin Innes to work on tablet devices as well as desktop computers enabling the resource to be used for online distance learning as well as face to face teaching. However, an additional option will also be included for a quick induction with no gimmicks – for the more business minded student.

Nobody was hurt in the making of this induction.

A team of health and information science academics at Robert Gordon University (RGU) have launched a new website which will act as a central access point to nursing doctoral and masters’ theses and dissertations from across the globe.

With support from RGU’s Library Service and a team of international collaborators, staff from RGU’s School of Nursing and Midwifery, have designed and launched the International Network for Electronic Theses and Dissertations in Nursing (INETDIN).

Dr Colin Macduff, Head of Research and Scholarly Activity at RGU’s School of Nursing and Midwifery, said: “This new network provides a much needed forum for exchange of information amongst nursing practitioners from around the world.

“During the past five years our international research with colleagues in Duquesne University, USA and Curtin University, Australia has found that there are thousands of nursing theses and dissertations available online but very few people know how to access them.

“Our new RGU-based website draws together best information and evidence in such a way that it will be a key resource for nurse scholars worldwide.”

Dr Susan Copeland, Information Resources Manager in RGU’s Library Service, added: “RGU is a leading voice in the open access to electronic theses and dissertations movement, and this project is a great example of joint working within RGU and across international boundaries.”

The network will be officially launched in the Journal of Advanced Nursing and with presentations over the next four months at international conferences in Puerto Rico, Las Vegas and New Delhi.
