  • Implementation success factors
    • Juggling with many balls
    • It is more than an introduction of a tool or system
    • It is educational innovation!
    • In the NL: The Balance Model

  • AAEEBL conference July 2010 AAEEBL conference July 2010 E-Portfolio attention areas in NL (2003 – 2005) Support Management Learning environment Learning activities Goals Infrastructure People Portfolio concept
  • Three common global implementation issues
    • How can the ePortfolio be embedded into the curriculum?
    • Who are your ePortfolio stakeholders?
      • Students/Learners
      • Teachers/coaches
      • Management/Administration
    • ePortfolio Interoperability and Standardization: What do we need to know?
    AAEEBL conference July 2010
  • Issue 1: How can the ePortfolio be embedded into the curriculum ?
    • What are the learning activities around the portfolio?
    • How are ePortfolios integrated into the curriculum at the course, department, program levels?
    • How can we address the benefits of the ePortfolio as a concept to the curriculum, instead of the ePortfolio as a tool ?

  • SURF NL Portfolio Checklist Portfolio learning environment
    • The portfolio has a clear status / is connected to substantial learning lines.
    • Learning lines involve core competences of university graduates and not just separate skills. The objective is academic and professional education, in breadth and in depth.
    • Clear levels and standards within the learning lines are communicated.
    • Comparable experiences are necessary for pattern identification. Within learning lines students get sequences of varied learning experiences in authentic situations.
    • In order to enhance the self-steering process, portfolio tasks / reflection tasks are given after sequences of practical experiences (academic and / or professional).
    • Students are trained to reflect upon their functioning , and requirements are being put upon pattern identification and formulation of the next step in the development (‘self-steering’).
    • Students organize and get feedback on their functioning or products immediately after their achievements.
    • Systematically students bring forward evidence for their progression on the learning lines.
    • The requirements for reflection reports by students are mirrored in the requirements for tutor skills (i.e. a tutor has to be dedicated to the goal, be an expert as well as a coach).
    • The performance of the tutors is part of a plan for improvement and control of the quality of educational programs: they are being trained and assessed.

    • Who needs to be on board in order to support a successful implementation?
    • How can these stakeholders benefit from adopting ePortfolios?
    • What can these stakeholders contribute to the support and the success of the ePortfolio initiative?

    • How can an ePortfolio facilitate transfer from the educational “market” to the labor market?

  • 2011: What’s ahead of us?
    • Employability aspects link up with learning
    • Regional/Statewide ePortfolios are coming up
    • Co-operation across educational sector arises as a result of retention problems and an aging population
    • Scaling up in higher education, moving to a new system
    • Standardisation and interoperability is key at macro level, but may conflict with context dependent portfolio concepts at or within universities
    • Channelling the Net Generation’s web 2.0 informal learning with formal, school provided activities and tools is a challenge for the next decade

  • Opportunities for Collaboration? Suggestions from the audience
    • For campuses who are new to ePortfolios, who’s doing what? Are there other campuses doing something similar to what we are doing? If yes, how can we find out?
    • Progression from learning to work contexts; engaging professional associations; helping students understand connections between learning and their profession
    • Collaborations with K-12 institutions, statewide; keeping records and reflections for life
    • Transitioning from extrinsic to intrinsic motivations to complete ePortfolios; related to autonomy, self-determination, student ownership – how do students make this transition, what factors influence this?
