David Hopkins blogs about bPortfolios – #eportfolio

Just a quick post to flag up a recent post from David Hopkins of Bournemouth Uni, looking at the benefits of creating a portfolio based around blogging rather than a more institutional platform.

In it he quotes from another post by Jim Shimabukuro which you can read directly here or better still, link from David’s post.

It’s also worth following the links back to the original paper mentioned in both posts.

You could also have a look at a post I did which has links to some nice case studies.

 

Video: supporting personal development and employability with #eportfolios

I recently came across this video by City Univeristy Hong Kong, courtesy of @kl_ever.

It’s a easy introduction to how eportfolios can help with presenting a person’s skills, knowledge and experience in a meaningful way to an employer as well as supporting their personal development before and after they graduate.

It would make a great primer for anyone starting to explore the benefits of eportfolios in your institution.
