Sohail Oosman: Best practice use of e-portfolio in WBL

  1. 1. Best practice use of e-portfolio in WBL Speaker: Sohail Oosman Head of Quality, Redwood Skills and Hillingdon Training
  2. 2. Benefits of e-Portfolio  Accessed by learners/assessors/verifiers/tutors at anytime and anywhere; so accommodating differing work patterns  Learner is at the centre – their learning, their achievement, their reflection  Allows for different pacing so taking into consideration an individual’s needs.  Learner can easily track progress which leads to increased motivation  Viewed by some learners as less intimidating than paper-based systems as can be easily broken down into more meaningful and manageable chunks  Enables direct and personal feedback (learner-tutor and learner-peer)  Increase in quality assessment planning and feedback  Supports skills development in self-motivation and self-direction
  3. 3. Impact  Increased success rates and timely achievement rates  Learners can be continuously supported if their assessor is off sick or on holiday; ensuring continuous progress  Employers can see exactly where the learners are at; ensuring employer engagement  Learners can see where they are at; progress bars are motivational  Independent learning /ownership  Less paperwork leads to cost savings  Reporting / Tracking  Performance management
  4. 4. Apps  The app offered by the e-portfolio solution used by the company enables assessors to use their smartphones to gather evidence in a time efficient way  Innovative assessment methods:  Photographic evidence  Digital recordings  Video  Mobile technology increases accessibility and mobility which can be important in many workplace settings
  5. 5. It has worked for us..  Redwood were judged to be ‘Good’ by Ofsted  Hillingdon Training, Redwood’s sister company were judged to be ‘Outstanding’ by Ofsted.  Redwood specialise in Apprenticeships in Sales, IT, Business Administration, Customer Service, Financial Services, Management and Team Leading  Hillingdon Training specialise in Apprenticeships in Childcare, Health and Social Care and Supporting Teaching and Learning in Schools - sectors that have been traditionally harder to engage with technology
