An E-Portfolio for Leisure Sciences Students: A Case Study at Edith Cowan University
Colyer, Sue; Howell, Julie
Australian Journal of Career Development, v13 n1 p23-32 Aut 2004
The benefits of an electronic portfolio as an educational tool, as well as a career tool, for leisure sciences students are discussed, and concerns with electronic portfolio implementation are raised. This paper also outlines briefly the prototype of the e-Portfolio developed for leisure sciences students. Responses from student evaluations indicate the range of students' confidence at the commencement of the project and at the conclusion of the unit. While students were confident about the portfolio process generally, their confidence in presenting an electronic version remained low. Some suggestions for assisting students are provided. Research suggestions for the application of the electronic portfolio for career planning and development are also discussed. (Contains 2 figures and 2 tables.)
