Some resources for thinking around ePortfolios

I am preparing to facilitate a discussion / workshop around ePortfolios for faculty and students this week at Unitec NZ, and while carrying out some of the background research found a plethora of resources:

  • Ray Tolley's discussion of Helen Barrett's Radar Diagram, and an associated list of 10 questions that "could be used by tutors to discuss with their students such things as learning styles or areas needing more attention etc. Students, too, could use this as a personal self-assessment exercise, comparing their results with 'ideal' results at stages throughout the course".
  • Sarah Stewart's thoughts, ideas, discussions, and challenges around using ePortfolios with health professionals and students studying within these areas. She also has a well put-together Slideshare around the subject "ePortfolio for health professionals".
  • Online Learning in the Arts (Birmingham University) reflects on a workshop run by JISC at Aston University, Birmingham, UK. This reflection and the discussion that follows brings to the fore the importance of the technological tail not wagging the pedagogical dog.
  • A discussion around, and links to resources concerning the "Benefits (and drawbacks) of E-Portfolios in Work Based Learning".
I've put another more extensive list together as well if anyone is intersted:
