Mission 4: Reflect on the use of scoop.it for your Quests and the individual missions you have completed including your key learnings about yourself, others and OHS through Mission 1-3 in this Quest. How ‘useful’ did you find the process and the discoveries in your development as a professional?
I have enjoyed the scoop it activity as it has allowed myself to find my voice and network with others that share my interest or those who have not, only to begin a very educational debate.
I have also found very useful resources to continual keep my knowledge up to date and found that everyone needs to be responsible for OHS concerns and that we must not become complacent on these matter.
Thank you Vonnie I have enjoyed this course very much. :)
What were your discoveries about the ‘quality’ of guidance material available to assist in addressing OHS issues?
The quality of guidance material available was of good quality and the nursing and midwifery board provided great information to support OHS issues.
What were your discoveries about the ‘accessibility’ of guidance material available to assist in addressing OHS issues?
The quality of accessibility was of good quality and other websites led to other good discoveries.
What were your discoveries about the ‘usability’ of guidance material available to assist in addressing OHS issues?
The websites I found that had great usability and were very straight forward to explain OHS issues were federal and state government websites such as Safe Work Australia and Business.gov.au.
How will your discoveries assist you to keep your knowledge ‘current’ into the future?
The federal and state government websites provide great resources and up to date information to keep my knowledge current. I have also joined OHS groups through linked in to continually discuss OHS topics and I will continually visit the Book Of Knowledge for guidance.
My ah hah moment was looking outside my backyard and seeing the injustice that's carried out in OHS in other countries and to be careful with the product that I purchase as they may be carried out by company that mistreat employees.
What new ‘connections’ did you make from the insights shared by others and your own discoveries about your work/play/interest areas?
The first scoop.it I created I added to my Facebook and Linked In Profile and I received lots of great feedback and started some great discussions to network with people within the OHS community.
The learning I will take from this is injustice must be heard for people to understand what is happening in our backyard as well as overseas and that we must discuss these issues to empower others to take a stand.
