Eportfolio research – both in Australia and
Wednesday 8 August 2018 – 4.30-5.30 pm AEST
This webinar will showcase eportfolios research being undertaken both in Australian and overseas.
- Dr Kathryn Coleman, University of Melbourne, and Associate Professor Patsie
Polly, UNSW Sydney
- Highlight Tour: Global Tales of ePortfolio research and practice in Australia and internationally Through the global network of AAEEBL we have the opportunity to work closely through our practice and research in global ePortfolio communities and local research projects. This webinar will highlight research across the globe through our connections and interconnections in portfolio pedagogies, practices and evidence of learning across spaces that we see as the big ideas in the community right now. We will highlight a number of global projects and open to discuss how to build collaborative opportunities through the AAEEBL and ePortfolios Australia partnership.
- Associate Professor Stephen Isbel, University of Canberra & Dr Misty Kirby, Charles Sturt University
Researching ePortfolios in Higher Education: The Process, Pitfalls and Epiphanies Our presentation will look at the practice of using ePortfolios in Higher Education, as well as how we have conducted research in this space at an Institutional and National level.
Associate Professor Stephen Isbel: Stephen is an occupational therapy academic
with research interests in post stroke rehabilitation, driver rehabilitation, public health and occupational therapy education. He is the program director of occupational therapy at the University of Canberra. Prior to developing the occupational therapy program in 2011, he held senior clinical positions in ACT Health primarily in aged care and adult neurological rehabilitation. Stephen and his teaching team have used e-portfolios as a valuable tool to document a student’s developing competency throughout their course and particularly during practice education. Part of the presentation today will be letting you know how he has developed this process so you might be able to use this in your own area.
- Dr Misty Kirby: Misty is passionate about improving students’ life chances through
effective education leadership and high quality, optimistic learning environments around the globe. She is a learning and teaching academic with research interests in supporting globally aware, rigorous academic scholarship so that students have rich, more engaging and authentic educational experiences. I began working with ePortfolios with my teacher education students whilst at the University of Canberra where colleagues and I discovered the role of portfolios in forming our own professional identities as scholars. Part of today’s presentation will be a discussion of this research, as well as a national project Steve and I are running across seven Australian universities.
