This LibGuide will help Concepts of Wellbeing (EDU1CW) students at Bendigo and Mildura to find the Library resources they need to complete the assessment tasks for this subject.
A key part of the assessment tasks is locating 2 peer reviewed journal articles using the Library databases:
- Wellbeing Plan Proposal (Assessment Task 2). Students choose a personal behaviour change they would like to make (eg. giving up smoking/ start meditating regularly to relieve stress) and write a journal, provide background information on the desired behaviour and find 2 peer reviewed journal articles to support the change.
- Annotated Bibliography (Assessment Task 3) Students needs to access, read and summarise the 2 peer reviewed journal articles from the Library database which relate to your Wellbeing Plan.
Two peer reviewed articles.....how do I find them?"
Once you have decided on the topic of your PWP and the behaviour change you would like to make, you will also need to locate at least two "peer reviewed" journal articles as evidence to support the change. Visit the TAB "Peer review" to find out more about peer review, how to locate journal articles and tips on keywords to use in your search.
Your Personal Well Being Project
When you come to writing up your Project, you will need to supply background information on the topic you choose.
For example, if your project was to undertake a 13 week programme of meditation / yoga / exercise regime to improve your stress levels, you would need to discuss what you mean by meditation / yoga / exercise. You will need to describe what you actually do :
What practices or techniques will you use?
How often will you do this?
What is the purpose of the meditation / yoga practice / exercise regime?
What precautions should you be aware of?
What stress reduction do you expect to achieve?
How will you measure your levels of stress or what indicators are relevant?
What challenges do you think you'll find along the way?
This sort of information will come from:
- books (both print and ebooks)
- Internet - don't forget to check your internet resources for credibility, accuracy, reasonableness and support of the website using the CARS checklist.
