  • e-Portfolios are cohesive electronic repositories for recording, storing and tracking students’ work, assessment items, feedback and evidence of clinical experience and competencies, and may include multi-media files.These innovative and dynamic methods of teaching and learning are pedagogically and technologically progressive, based on a student-centred approach with the potential to enhance medical student education, and have the ability to adapt to their needs whilst learning in clinical and non-clinical settings, and rural and urban locations.e-Portfolios promote reflective learning and planning, enhance communication and create a record of a student’s work and experience to support their professional careers and life-long learning.

    1. 1. Adopting an e-Portfolio as an assessment tool: Investigating options, issues and future possibilities Dr Robyn Smyth Ms Catherine Studdert Academic Developer JMP Project Manager - Occupational Therapy School of Rural Medicine School of Health Sciences Faculty of the Professions Faculty of Health University of New England The University of NewcastleDr Graeme Horton Professor Ian Symonds Mr Brett GriffinSenior Lecturer in Medical Education Dean of the JMP IT Project Officerand General Practice Professor of ObstetricsSchool of Medicine & Public Health School of Medicine & Public Health School of Medicine & Public HealthFaculty of Health Faculty of Health Faculty of HealthThe University of Newcastle The University of Newcastle The University of Newcastle
    2. 2. Context 2 Joint Medical Program  Cross-institutional teaching of medical students – rural/regional footprint  200 students per year over wide geographical base  Assessment Committee working party investigating potential use of e-Portfolio  Chose Buzetto More & Alade’s 2008 Pentagonal e-Portfolio Model as theoretical framework  Approach taken: pedagogy to drive choice of technology17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp

    4. 4. Our Needs Recording 4 Storing Tracking Our Needs Assessment Feedback Reflections Recording of valuable educational experiences for later reference by students Interoperability and secure storage of sensitive information Tracking of clinical experiences, especially those which trace the path to developing professionalism Assessment of student learning and competencies Provision of useful feedback to students Provision of a tool which encourages students to reflect on their experiences and learning, which can form the basis of further dialogue with mentors.17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp

    8. 8. Theory 8 Buzzetto-More & Alade (2008) Scholarly Approach ANZAME09 posterOur investigations have been guided by our conceptual frameworkreflective of Buzzetto-More & Alade’s (2008) Pentagonal e-Portfolio Model: I. Identify Needs (purpose, performance indicators and learning outcomes) II. Determination, Assessment & Budget (select systems features, assess existing technology, determine type, determine budget) III. Select & Strategic Planning (select system, develop implementation plan) IV. Development (build into curriculum, develop rubrics, assessment, allocate resources) V. Implement & Grow Towards Continuous Improvement (prepare students/staff, pilot, testing, evaluation, implementation)17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp
    9. 9. Our Investigation 9 Our Investigation Available Software Peer Experiences From niche medical suites to general e-Portfolio software – None fit all our needs, but some are candidates Anecdotal reports that e-Portfolios are desired by our students – Flexible – Shows progress – Supported Literature Review of e-Portfolio in Medical Programs – Remember staff; – Introduce early in program where possible – Fit to purpose17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp

    11. 11. 11 2010 Pilot - Overview Small group of Newcastle-based student volunteers in Year 4 Joint Medical Program Replaced paper-based portfolio assessment component Training and support mechanisms provided Volunteers participated in two focus group sessions Could at any time elect to submit the paper-based portfolio17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp
    12. 12. 12 2010 Pilot e-Portfolio Using Mahara based foliospaces.com Using free accounts (50MB space) Students using Google Docs for documents (free 1GB space) Students had to present Work Integrated Learning (WIL) content against course competencies whether in paper or electronic Students had freedom in media types they could present their competencies within their e-portfolios17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp
    13. 13. The e-Portfolio 13 Student Profile• Student access their e-Portfolio ‘Views’• Communicate with Academic Mentors or Co-ordinators• Access to the support group17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp
    14. 14. The e-Portfolio 14 e-Portfolio Section View• ‘View’ part of overall e-Portfolio• Specific topic (view on each Rotation topic)• Student use any tool to record clinical experiences (against competency list)• De-identification of patient data17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp

    16. 16. 2010 Pilot – Informing 2011 Trial 16 Students engaged and reflected more often on their clinical experiences (than they thought they might otherwise have done) Described Mahara as easy to use Would loved to have had exemplars to peruse before building their own e-Portfolios Targeted support: self-help vodcasts, 10-step e-Portfolio setup, etc. Would like to use e-Portfolios, particularly in early years of the program17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp
    17. 17. Next project… 17 Full cohort of Newcastle-based Year 4 JMP students in course – Greater use of feedback to mentor students directly in e-Portfolio – Train more academic markers and mentors – Greater use of online support snippets, forms and podcasts – Use of Elluminate for one-on-one support and application walk-throughs while on placement17 October 2011e-Portfolios Australia Conference 2011│www.newcastle.edu.au/jmp
