Effective Practice with e-Portfolios: How Can the UK Experience Inform Implementation?
Joyes, Gordon; Gray, Lisa; Hartnell-Young, Elizabeth
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v26 n1 p15-27 2010
This paper introduces the background to the JISC work within the e-portfolio domain in the UK and presents an overview of past and current activities and the drivers for these developments. This is followed by a review of JISC's approach to drawing out the learning and implications for e-portfolio practice from this extensive collection of work and its dissemination. The analysis of twenty one recently funded projects involving the use of e-portfolios in the UK is introduced. The findings suggest that e-portfolio implementation is particularly complex in part due to the number of stakeholders involved, the contexts in which e-portfolios can be applied and the number of purposes they can have. This research suggests that there are threshold concepts related to e-portfolio implementation and that developing an understanding of effective practice is not straightforward. However a means of supporting this understanding is suggested. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
