e-Portfolios for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education
One Day Conference, Imperial College, London, Friday 24th April 2015
The use of portfolios in general and e-portfolios in particular in teaching and learning has been well documented and opinions vary as to their advantages (L Stefani, R Mason, C Pegler, 2007; BM Garrett, C Jackson - Nurse Education Today, 2006; AL Daunert, L Price - Discourses on Professional Learning, 2014). Nevertheless, they can, amongst other things, assist students with reflection on their learning strategies, document progress, enhance student autonomy and contribute to formative or summative assessment.
This one-day conference hosted and organised by the Centre for Co-Curricular Studies at Imperial College in collaboration with the LSE Language Centre will look at e-portfolios from different angles: technology, assessment and their use in a variety of disciplines
