  • 1 Introduction Overview of our work •  Discussion with participants (staff and students) •  Review of previous ePortfolio trials, paper portfolios, electronic exchanges •  Developing contextualised models of ePortfolio use •  Implementation in five scenarios •  Evaluation of tools in three cases (with student input) 7 Future-Proofing PDP and e-Portfolio Developments
  • 2 Approach Three Elements A. Feature comparison of e-portfolio tools - Technology B. Needs analysis - Pedagogy C. Needs-based e-portfolio tool evaluation - Practice 8

  • 4 Purpose of Use Analysis: Multiple Themes 1.  Model: What is an ePortfolio? 2.  Ownership: Who controls what? 3.  Access: How does collaboration work? 4.  Use and purpose: Implications for learning, development and assessment 5.  Issues: Training, support, portability 23 Future-Proofing PDP and e-Portfolio Developments
  • Theme Questions Model What is an ePortfolio? How can it be used to support learning, development, assessment? How can/should it be organised/structured/managed? Who would/should monitor development and progress? Questions asked the benefits to the student, tutor, supervisor, mentor and/or Institution? What are Ownership Who is it for? Who has overall control/ownership of it? How, what, and with whom can it be shared? Accessibility How can it be accessed? Who can/should/needs to have access to it and at what level? Tool Can it be integrated or linked to other systems, e.g. Registry? What are the practical issues and implications of implementation? What costs are involved? Which system should be used and what are the alternatives? Support What training is needed and how could this be delivered? 24 Future-Proofing PDP and e-Portfolio Developments
