Hence life long learning - teachers must develop students skill in LLL - set the stage for LLL in the student
Judgement and decision making
Use should grow out of assessment and what they do in their social world.
Real world is unscripted - therefore learning and assessment needs to be authentic - complex' unscripted, where we dont know what the future is but students have the skills to adapt, Employers want students to have solved a real world problem, researched a problem, completed a significant project, shown evidence of ethical behaviour
High impact practices include placements/internship (etc. refer to slides), Educationally purposeful activities, Less prepared students who engage in high impact practices tend to do better than students who come prepared academically with high test scores., Graduation rates as well improve OVER academically prepared students, Challenge: how do we makr the high impact practices core and criticial and not optional.
Not about this is ok that is not
Something else to look at - faculty do know what quality education is, eg looked st rubrics on writing . What appeared most frequently - a lot of shared concept was found - this makes up the value rubrics., Formed a definition of what academics meant by the outcomes and jargon terms.
Search for "value" on association of american colleges and universities
Critical thinking has dimensions - which are stong or weak in your students?
After callibration of rubric to reach shared understanding among students and staff effectiveness of portfolio use (rubric sets expectation) was very high.
Give descriptive feedbsck and help students learn how to evaluate their own work.
New bachelor of nursing degree had to be running next year with an eportfolio - as a pilot, It initiative project, Purpose: to explore eportfolios and their potential to enhance student engagement and personalise their learning experience, Desire to learn eportfolio - took 6 months to choose a portfolilmand 3 weeks to implement.
Students capture skills using video on placement and provide reflecyion, tag graduate atts against reflections and artifacts., Rubrics provided and attached to artifacts by students with self assessment, Asked staff to take footage,create a portfolio and upload them to understand whst students were being asked to do., $30k spent on head cams etc, Technical training requirments huge, Training workshops had low attendance - busy staff, Staff didnt knownwhat an eportfolio was - and project started being (maybe fault of the implementors?) Driven by technology., Faculties doing the work had to inherit training after trainers dropped out, Faculties left to drive the project and implement technology and pedagogy without uni oversight perspective., IT support people confused eportfolio with lms, didn't understand eportfolios or the pedagogy, Pilot involved 2500 students per semester, Concept of what an eportfolio was was missing from the staff and students, Students crashed server with 50meg of video being uploaded in exam week.
In hind sight should have started with a pedagogical rational for why, what and then look at how.
Was eportfolio the right platform formcapturing video and reflection? We need a personal learning space. Along with a solution that matches the learning activity and learning outcomes.
Staff need to know about portfolios and have their own before asking students to make them
Had tech issues, class msnagement issues, pedagogical issues, mobile device use management, social media ethics (eg uploading patient videos to youtube)
Backups are recommended using CD,'s thumb drives etc, so students can take their eportfolios with them for when LEAP2A doesnt work.
Students used various diagrams, monopoly, trees, teapots, floor plans etc, Different way of conceptualising it

Reflecting and revisiting and reflecting - part of the scaffolding
Transition pedagogy - going from school based pedgogy to university pedagogy
Ict skills have been embedded simply by using eportfolios
Student centred, student pace, home learning, regular formativenfeedback, timely feedback, develop ict skills, interesting and accessible, increased complexity each week
Portfolio designed with long term course long reflection in mimd- ie askimg students in 3rd year to reflect on what they think now compared to reflections made in first year.
The applied pedagogy helped students think like a teacher.
Portfolios included Evidence, appendicies and eferences. Great for later reflection, professional accreditation, repurposing.
Students now using portfolio in other units without being adked to by teachers
Its a book by lane smith - book trailer. Youtube search
Never mentions the word reflection, just gets them to do it!, Doesnt confuse them with jargon
Want students to be able to talk about their work in informed and knowledgable ways, not "my work is organic" "im a fluffy designer"
To help provide a safe space they can use once they graduate
Using a portfolio does reflect practice of the profession, its how others engage with their work.
Designers have become very influential through blogs - thousands of hits per day
Got to be meaningful, Students have to be able to relate to what they are doing and why they would use it, Not because someone is making you do it, The why has to fit in with what teacher is doing and their curriculum, So students can say here is who i am, what i can do, and here is the evidence beind it.
Students asked to fill out a form that lists generic skills they are coming in with, General education courses, Bachelor of information systems, Group work, Statistics, People taught their dicsipline thats it, Major, Information systems, Communication, Example, Sociology, Nutrition, Philosophy, Biochemistry, History, Psychology, Linguistics, Personal life, Team work, Communication, Professional life, Fast good delivery, Hospitality - front of house, Communication, Punctuality, Extracurricular activities, Computing, Problem solving, Communication, Electronics, Attention to detail, Problem solving, Example, Campus anti-war network, Universalist group, English society, Philosophy club, Its the individual drawing out the gen skills they have that is the hard part/skill that is needed to fill out this form, Connections for me were not made in my under grad degree regarding what generic skills i was learning - and no connections means no meaning since meaning is created through connections., Therefore i found it hard to fill in this form of generic skills i had comiing out of my under grad degree
New masters being developed as an integrated experience, Inside the program - students are expectedc to make connections among units regarding de elopmnent of generic skills, Eportfolios seen as a suitable tool - leveraging the long term, artifact, showcase, learning journey nature of portfolios
Staff then saw a need to know what students are learning outside their course, Because from filling out the form they could see that the connections between general education, their course, and what students learn in their extra curricular activity are there and real and important. Extra curricular learning impacts on and connections are made with learning in a course., Engage students so they develop what the big picture looks like, self efficacy, agency - e.g. having a navman screen of where you are versus being able to see the big map, This approach helps students think about formal informal etc as a big picture to help them go forward
