Welcome to ePortfolios.ac.uk


This site aims to provide a community resource for those interested in ePortfolios and Personal Development Planning (PDP). It is run by Newcastle University, where we have been involved in ePortfolio development since 1998. The site was first set up to document a project in which we built the ePET portfolio, which can be configured to meet diverse pedagogic requirements. Since then the technology, pedagogy and research have been taken forward in numerous follow-on projects, also documented on this site. A current focus for us is Dynamic Learning Maps, which embeds portfolio learning in curriculum and personal learning maps. We also have a specialist Dental portfolio, used with partners in the UK and Australia. Our postgraduate ePortfolio also includes support for project approval, annual progression and other parts of the student life-cycle. Your comments or suggestions for the site would be most welcome.
