Portfolios generally and eportfolios specifically have played a role in student learning and assessment in universities for some time. The literature supports the use of portfolios in developing student ability to critically reflect on, and to articulate, university and workplace achievements that in turn aid their employability (Trevitt, Stocks & Quinlan, 2012; Shen & Ooi, 2013; Bramhall, Short & Lad, 2013). Eportfolios have been used in various disciplines such as IT (Chang & Liao, 2014), the humanities (Mossa, 2014), dentistry (Gadbury-Amyot, McCracken, Woldt & Brennan, 2014), medicine (Webb, et al, 2014), nursing (Anderson, Gardner, Ramsbotham & Tones, 2009) and teaching (Boulton, 2013). There has been some limited use of portfolios in the area of engineering (Williams, 2002; Eliot & Turns, 2011; Fielke & Quinn, 2011) and this has pointed to the place of eportfolios in enhancing engineering students’ professional skills and the development and articulation of workplace learning. This paper documents the findings of a small study into eportfolio use in engineering and ICT in Australia and reports on a proposed wider initiative to develop the first national portal for best reflective practice.
