Individuals benefit from ongoing and professional development through formal and informal learning experiences but are often offered limited support to manage the evidence of their learning for future uses (eg for such things as applying for a job or a promotion, supporting performance management or recognition of prior learning and/or applying for a grant or entry into a tertiary institution).

This presentation demonstrates how Mahara is being used to with educators and support staff using collaborative learning techniques, critical reflective dialogue and shared learning experiences to support their action-based learning and action-research projects. This session will also showcase how the educators and support staff collectively generate and gather evidence in Mahara which they can be used in the future or as part of their ongoing reporting requirements.
