Workshop: How Can #ePortfolios Support 21st Century Learning? Nottingham 24th Jan

At JISC Netskills, we are holding another of our successful workshops on how ePortfolios can enhance learning in higher, further and continuing education.

Full details are here.

We’ll be the guests of New College in Nottingham on Tuesday 24th January and we’d love to see you.

Lisa Gray, eLearning Programme Manager at JISC will deliver the keynote and we’ve also got 3 guest speakers coming along to talk about their institutions’ experiences of eportfolio use and implementation;

I’m hoping to do short profiles on each in the weeks leading up to the event.

There will be plenty of opportunities for meeting other people involved with eportfolios, try out a variety of eportfolio systems and explore some of the resources for support provided by JISC.

Places are £50 each.

Have a look at the resources from the previous events.



How can ePortfolios Support 21st Century Learning – Netskills Workshop, Newcastle 30th March

[[posterous-content:pid___0]]JISC Netskills is running a workshop called How Can ePortfolios Support 21st Century Learning? on Weds 30th March. It will be held at Newcastle University.

It’s a great opportunity to meet up with fellow practitioners in HE, FE, Public Sector and work-based learning and discuss the issues arising from the implementation and use of eportfolios in different contexts. 

Presenting will be Lisa Gray from JISC as well as several other guest presenters from different institutions who will be sharing their experiences. Confirmed so far are Duncan Gillespie from Dumfries and Galloway College who will be discussing their use of WordPress as an eportfolio platform and Robert Chmielewski from Edinburgh University who has been supporting an institution-wide implementation of PebblePad. More speakers will be announced shortly and I’ll be doing profiles of each speaker nearer the time.

There will also be an opportunity to try out a number of different ePortfolio platforms including Mahara, PebblePad, WordPress and ePET.

Resources and agendas from previous events can be found on our project site. (The agenda for this event may differ slightly from previous ones)

It’s a highly participative event and we will be streaming elements of it online. Places are £50 each.

Come along. We’d love to see you.

Updated Resources from the JISC Netskills Workshops

Since 2009, JISC Netskills has run a series of events round the UK titled “How can ePortfolios Support 21st Century Learning”. These are day-long workshops that shared what JISC has been doing to support institutions that were implementing eportfolios and showcasing some of the work being done in colleges and universities round the country.

The resources for these events are available online at the JISC Netskills website. These include the slides form  Lisa Gray from JISC’s keynote presentation, the guest presentations and summaries of the workshop discussions as well as links to other useful documents and sites.

The latest event ran in London on the 10th November and the resources from this event are online now.

While there are no dates confirmed for future Netskills ePortfolio events I’ll make sure that it’s announced on this blog as well so keep your eyes open!

ePortfolios turned up to 11!

Thanks for visiting the ePortfolio Amplifier.

JISC Netskills has started this blog and the associated Twitter account as a way of spreading information about implementing and using ePortfolios in education. The blog has a UK focus, but not exclusively. It’s likely most of the posts will be about higher and further education but I’ll also be sharing stuff about schools and work-based learning.

There’s a Twitter account too: @ep_amplifier

There’s also a Diigo bookmarking list available. It’s not got much in it but hopefully it will turn into a useful library over time. Feel free to follow it.

Other forms of social media will come along in the future.
