Professionalism is an essential attribute, which is fundamental to personal development, self-awareness and preparation for future employment across all disciplines. We often expect our learners to have the essential knowledge and understanding of professional attitudes and behaviours at the start of their programme of study. However, it is widely recognised that due to societal and cultural change, social media, and many other factors, the term `Professionalism` does not always share the same meaning. In order to develop a greater awareness and promote individual development of learners, our aim is to prepare them for professional practice and regulation through professional bodies. Our overall strategic agenda is to bring professionalism to the forefront of education, and embed it with our programmes of study. This presentation will discuss how the School of Nursing and Midwifery has worked with the Academic Librarian for the School to develop a section in LEAP Online about Professionalism. We will discuss how we collaborated to design the content explaining professionalism and its importance, developed scenario based activities for the students to measure their understanding of professionalism and finally test their knowledge and understanding by gaining a digital badge. We will reflect on how our experience as practitioners has helped shape this exciting new content and our plans to develop it further and embed across all subject areas within the university.
