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.
