This presentation explains the scholarly development and evaluation of a novel online learning resource designed to develop students’ professional practice attributes. The resource is an integrated network of professional practice audiovisual-based learning objects (PABLO) that can be used as interchangeable blocks to challenge and progress students’ thinking and skills. The initial six PABLO cases focus on the core professional practice attributes of ethics, professionalism, communication, resilience and career management (Heath & Mills 2000; Leighton 2004). Analysis of published work, student surveys and interviews were used to identify challenging scenarios and develop real-life dialogue as the foundation for PABLO. These were brought to life using video vignettes integrated with engagement questions to challenge and progress students’ thinking and skills. The effectiveness of the resource was evaluated using student surveys, focus groups and usage patterns. Future plans include expansion of the PABLO scenarios and incorporation of face-to-face learning activities to create a blended approach that enhances student engagement and learning outcomes (Ellis & Goodyear 2010).
