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.
