  2. 2. Click to edit Master title style 07/05/2014 2 • Why use an e-portfolio to support learning? – Process (process of learning or transitional process) – Product (evidence, presentation) But we mustn’t forget that in amongst all the talk about supporting learning, there is the issue of efficiency and cost-saving E-portfolios Purpose
  3. 3. Click to edit Master title style 07/05/2014 3 Reflection – this should be an approach that is applicable for any learner be they staff or student. Why is using an e-portfolio so important?
  4. 4. Remaining in good standing INSTITUTIONAL VIEW Thanks for PebbleLearning
  5. 5. Publicist Researcher Mentor Learning technologist Reflectivepractitioner Informed Advocate Teacher Students Formative & summative feedback Course design To colleagues Programme team/cross faculty For students & colleagues esp in early stages of adoption CPD & application for UKPSF & remaining in good standing Evidence: Retention, grad es, employmen t, economics. Awareness of challenges e.g. of transitions, importance of audience, interoperability Correcting misconceptions Sharing best practice E-PORTFOLIO PRACTITIONER = heptagon
  6. 6. Click to edit Master title style 07/05/2014 6 Challenges arrive • When the process itself straddles different processes and there is no acknowledgment of the ‘gap’ – this isn’t just a technical problem this is about value and audience (e.g. potential employers) • When there is no recognition that there may be some efficiencies, but there is also new work to do – e.g. feedback on work shared either formatively or summatively
  7. 7. Click to edit Master title style 07/05/2014 7 Two examples of challenges • Innovative assessment • Staff CPD – (e.g. HEA UKPSF) E-portfolios may be a solution but tension arises if this is at odds with: • the discipline • the institutional culture • learner expectations • or even who is funding the learning
  8. 8. Click to edit Master title style 07/05/2014 8 Complexity Challenges are even more acute when a champion of the e-portfolio changes jobs Look at what we lose!
  9. 9. Click to edit Master title style 07/05/2014 9 Success 1 Will only be achieved if the e-portfolio approach: Has sustained & continuous senior management support, vocal endorsement, and ongoing scrutiny
  10. 10. Click to edit Master title style 07/05/2014 10 Success 2 Reliant on EP practitioner & software The survival of the e-portfolio will depend on being able to demonstrate: • efficiencies on a large scale • results – retention, grades, graduate jobs • statistics - generated by software itself and the wider online learning environment
