There are good reasons for students to use ePortfolios. They have been used successfully in engineering education (Blicblau, 2008; Campbell & Schmidt, 2005) and have been used to help students understand engineering graduate attributes (Palmer & Hall, 2006). Campbell and Schmidt (2005) outline a number of_benefits of ePortfolios including providing students with a way to store work so the students can identify their development over time; ePortfolios help students reflect on their development over time; and ePortfolios can showcase student work to potential employers (Goodyer & Milne, 2009).

This workshop will focus on creating a template for an assessment eportfolio that is designed to "produce evidence that relevant parties will find credible, suggestive, and applicable to decisions that need to be made...thinking in advance about how the information will be used, and by whom" (Astin et al., 2004). This would also contain certain pages that could contribute to a showcase eportfolio that can be used to represent best practices for the purpose of fostering self-reflection and peer review (Fowler, 2014) and provide expert certified evidence of their competencies to potential employers.

Presenter: Yasmine Tolentino - Blended Learning Advisor (University of Western Sydney-School of Computing Engineering and Mathematics) has been in the educational design circle for the past five years. Helped in the design, implementation, support & evaluation of using Pebblepad as an eportfolio assessment for four units in Industrial Design from 2014 to present.
