Contribute to some Australian eportfolio research 

The Australian Eportfolio Research Group will be facilitating an Ideas Exchange Working Lunch session at 2017 Eportfolio Forum entitled “Exploring the Functions of Assessment Driven ePortfolio use in the Context of Vulnerable Communities”.

During this session they will be sharing information about their research project which recognises that eportfolio practice in some tertiary education settings involves the necessary collection of evidence of learning involving vulnerable groups. Preservice teacher education in school settings and nursing student placements in hospitals and clinics are examples. The learning undertaken is necessarily authentic, situated, documented and shared. It is recognised there may be unintended consequences involved with the collection and sharing aspects of this phenomena that need to be understood and managed.

The aims of this research are to:

1. Understand current practice across institutions and related challenges,

2. Identify intended and unintended outcomes of ePortfolio practice relating to vulnerable groups, and

3. Develop guidelines to be used by faculty and students to address unintended negative outcomes.

Join in on the conversation about this research at the 2017 Eportfolio Forum.
