An ePortfolio is a personal digital learning space within which students can collect evidence of their learning and reflect upon it.
An ePortfolio is a personal digital learning space within which students can collect evidence of their learning and reflect upon it. There are a variety of ways in which the ePortfolio can be used to support learning, teaching and assessment.
What can the ePortfolio be used for?
Our ePortfilio system, PebblePad, can be used by anyone who wants to record, reflect on and learn from experience:
- Planning personal and professional development - PebblePad supports personal learning as an individual can collect pieces of evidence in a secure online environment which can be repurposed and shared with different audiences.
- Preparing for accreditation - Many professional bodies require evidence of competencies and PebblePad can provide the tool to evidence this learning.
- Developing evidence for employability - PebblePad can be used to build and maintain dynamic CVs.
- Promoting reflective learning - Templates are available (and can be developed) to prompt students to reflect on their learning and create action plans.
- Assessment - students can share their work with their tutor for formative comments but can also submit their work for summative assessment.
- Peer Review and collaboration - students can work collaboratively through PebblePad.
How can I use an ePortfolio to teach my students?
Staff who wish to know more about how to use the ePortfolio tool as part of an academic course should contact their Digital Academic Developer (formerly Faculty Learning Technologist).
