Eportfolios as flexible learning spaces

Eportfolios allow people to manage the evidence of their formal and informal learning experiences by enabling them to gather and present their information in one place. Through a flexible, student-centred approach, teachers/trainers can regularly provide ongoing feedback and advice to their students through their eportfolio. As part of a structured and scaffolded program, students are empowered to showcase themselves in a variety of ways, utilising the mobile devices which they carry around with them, and as they collect their evidence anytime, anywhere. The skills students develop in creating their eportfolio are those necessary to effectively present and manage themselves online, a key skill for the 21st century. Students then have the opportunity to use their eportfolio to apply for a job, get a promotion or gain recognition of prior learning. This session will demonstrate how eportfolios are being used as flexible, online learning and assessment spaces, and how teachers/trainers can get started in implementing eportfolios with their students.
