If you’re up for some late night keynote action (if you’re in European timezones) have a look at Alison Miller’s post on the details for the ePortfolios Australia 2011 conference.

The event is on the 17th-18th October, on the theme of “Making the difference – showing the difference” and if you can’t make it to Perth then catch the live streams of the keynotes. Here are the session details from Alison’s blog…

#ePortfolios at the Uni of South Australia (Margaret Faulkner)

Way back in September I attended a conference on ePorfolios run by the JISC Regional Support Centre for Scotland North and East. I did a brief summary on my personal blog but I’d like to highlight one of the presentations; Margaret Faulkner from The University of South Australia (UniSA).

Margaret delivered the first keynote, about their experiences implementing an ePortfolio across a large institution and all the associated successes and hurdles they encountered on the way. They use PebblePad but as with all of these things the platform is the least interesting aspect of the story. It includes brief case studies of ePortfolios in midwifery and engineering studies.

Here’s the presentation, helpfully recorded by the RSC. It’s about 30 mins long and the slides don’t quite match with the audio.
