An activity is anything that a trainee wishes to record in their portfolio. Trainees can request an assessment or request a review be added as an activity to their portfolio, but there are times when a trainee may wish to add another type of activity to their portfolio. To do this they can complete a blank activity form selecting from one of the pro formas (Reflection, Case Log or Supervision Session) if they wish.
Most activities can be mapped to the curriculum to show evidence of competency either directly or thorough a current PDP item to show that the PDP item has been achieved.
Step 1: Click on '+New Activity' in the portfolio card on the dashboard of the trainee account.
Trainees can use a blank activity form or can select from a number of predefined proformas such as the 'Reflection' form or 'Case Log' here.
Step 2: Enter a name for your activity or select from one of the proformas.
When completing the details on the form, trainees will be able to assign the activity to a predefined category, a folder, add a tag, add an attachment or keep the activity private. If an activity has been kept private, it cannot be viewed by anyone other than the trainee.
Step: 3: Complete the form.
Step 4: Click on 'Submit Activity'.
Upon submitting the form, trainees will be alerted if any required fields have been missed.
Once successfully submitted, the trainee can map an activity to a competency through a current PDP item, or map to a curriculum directly to demonstrate competency.
The activity can be edited or linked to another activity using the 'followups' feature.
Supervisors along with trainees can comment on activities.
