E-portfolios for PLD (Part 1)

3.5    

A portfolio is the best method for storing and organising anything and everything needed to demonstrate and narrate a tutor's Professional Learning and Development (PLD).

The personal nature of an e-portfolio ensures privacy and brings with it the benefit of it being online and shareable for collaboration and presenting.

We will explore the features that are common to all of them, what you can do with an e-portfolio and their advantages over paper-based solutions.

Aim

This module shows you what an e-portfolio is in preparation for using one as a professional development tool.

Objective

After completing this module, you will be able to:

• explain what an e-portfolio is
• identify the features and functionality that are common to typical e-portfolio products
• compare an e-portfolio with paper-based systems to assess the benefits and drawbacks of each for managing your PLD.

Found the exercise difficult with a limited knowledge of e-portfolios. Wider focus on the limitations of a paper based system would have been beneficial  Report this review

Our Response: Thank you we appreciate your comments and have noted them.

Although based for learners and teachers which is good, it also needs to be able to discuss how teaching/learning assistants can develop an e-portfolio to help with any progression they make.  Report this review

really poor. The questions are factually untrue and makes me think that a lot of people have never used a scanner.  Report this review
