An ePortfolio is a learner-created collection of digital items: ideas, evidence, reflections, feedback, which presents a selected audience with evidence of a person's learning and/or ability.
ePortfolio is a concept and practice that provides creative opportunities using technology for profiling a person’s achievements, career aspirations and contribution to learning and teaching in their academic institution and professions
(Fisher & Hill, 2014; Johnson et al. 2010)
ePortfolios Australia is hosting the 2016 ePortfolio Forum; a two day event of presentations, workshops, facilitated conversations and networking. A variety of interactive sessions will enable new and experienced ePortfolio supporters to gain some ‘hands-on’ experience with using ePortfolios.
When: 28 - 29 September
Where: The Sydney Conservatorium of Music at the University of Sydney
Everyone who uses LEO has access to their own ePortfolio via the link 'My portfolio'.
At ACU we use the ePortfolio hosting system Mahara. It stores artefacts and allows the user to control sharing of material, experience and expression of evidence through a variety of media to achieve specific outcomes.
Professional development workshops and webinars are available for staff who want to use ePortfolio for their teaching or for documenting their own learning and projects.
