- John Kertesz, University of Tasmania
Linking design end curriculum management and eportfolios to respond to increased regulation in professional degrees.
Following criticism of graduate workplace capabilities, teacher education providers face stricter regulation requirements. This presentation introduces a pedagogical model that links design end curriculum planning and essential ePortfolio management functions to generate comprehensive standard aligned evidence required for graduate professional certification and program accreditation.
John Kertesz is the Lecturer in Applied Learning at the University of Tasmania, coming to academia after a career in the Australian Army and twenty years teaching experience from primary through to tertiary levels. He has a long-standing interest in the evaluation of teaching practice and the application of the National Professional Standards for Teachers to improve classroom pedagogy and professional learning. In addition to being an enthusiastic advocate of ePortfolios to evidence professional capabilities, John has a particular interest in establishing effective pedagogical frameworks for successful ePortfolio integration.
- Terry Young & Kate Mitchell, La Trobe University, Evidence Based Practice – Aspiration vs Reality
Portfolios are an ideal medium to facilitate the collection of evidence of learning by students. Increasingly institutions are required to achieve accreditation of courses by reporting evidence of student learning to professional bodies. In this presentation, we will outline the methods by which La Trobe University, School of Education have shifted their teaching courses and assessment for AITSL in light of new requirements to include evidence-based practice. We will discuss the strategies and design methodologies we undertook as well as the real world challenges and issues we faced, and make links to lessons learned and how they could be applied to other fields.Terry Young is currently a Senior Education Designer working at La Trobe Learning & Teaching. He has worked over the last 5 years with the Education and Health Science Disciplines promoting the use of Portfolios in curriculum and clinical assessment.
Kate Mitchell is currently a Senior Educational Designer at La Trobe University but has a number of years experiences both in blended and online learning and in teaching practice as a Secondary and Vocational educator. Her recent Masters by Research explored enablers and barriers to implementing e-Learning experienced by vocational/TAFE practitioners.
