PebblePad Webinar Series: Portfolios in Professional Programs  

PebblePad are facilitating a series of webinars in August exploring the use of portfolio-based learning approaches in professional programs.  The webinars will focus on Midwifery, Teacher Education and Nursing.

The webinars will feature invited presenters from Australian universities who will demonstrate how an eportfolio approach is being used to support teaching, learning and authentic assessment in their programs, with particular focus on workplace-based assessment during placements.  PebblePad will also facilitate discussion about some of the key issues, challenges and benefits associated with engaging with eportfolios in these programs.

While these examples will obviously be PebblePad based, PebblePad are keen to welcome educators not using PebblePad to also join the discussion.

Free resources: Defining digital ethics when using eportfolios webinar – May 2020

Review the recording from the Defining digital ethics when using eportfolios webinar – May 2020, where ePortfolios Australia and AAEEBL collaborated to facilitate a discussion around:

  • What does digital ethics and eportfolios mean?
  • What does digital ethics and eportfolios look like now?, and
  • What does digital ethics and eportfolios look like when it is working well?

Panelists and MCs provided some wonderful insights on these questions, and there was some interesting ‘chat’ discussions as well.

Please share these resources with others who you think would find them useful.
