Artefact Evaluation: Moyra Jones – The Valleyview Legacy
Timing: 30 Minutes
Mode: In-class; Online
Introduce this exercise by asking learners to decide on 3 words that best describe Moyra Jones. Then have students make a mind map or infographic that visually depicts core values embedded within the ideas and practices of Moyra Jones and her Valleyview colleagues. Once learners have identified the core values and placed them on their mind map, have them add a written or spoken “legacy of how to innovate” statement to each core value. This exercise can be completed in class or online, and can also be used as the basis for a group discussion or completed independently as a graded assignment.
This unit invites comparison with Designing Dementia Care: A Case Study of Greenacres, another History in Practice instructional unit located in our Policy into Practice Module. Instructors may wish to have learners use material from both units to deepen their understanding of systemic and professional ageism and of the importance of acknowledging and treating the whole person.
