This Eportfolio Ireland seminar and workshop event to be held on 20 February 2020 will disseminate national research on current levels of ePortfolio practice in Irish higher education. Currently, there is a dearth of literature on ePortfolio practice in Ireland This will be addressed by the recently launched research initiative conducted by Eportfolio Ireland, which will encompass all Irish Higher Education institutions.
The results of this research will provide an overview and analysis of the national ePortfolio context, document the types of ePortfolios used in Irish higher education, identify any significant issues relating to ePortfolio implementation, and offer guidance about future opportunities for ePortfolio development. The dissemination of this research will be of interest to all those considering ePortfolio use for assessment and the development of student and faculty digital literacies.
This event provides an evidence informed picture of ePortfolio practice, a focus on building digital competencies, and support for collaboration between and within institutions. Following the seminar presentation, a series of personalised workshops will be offered to support those at different stages of ePortfolio initiatives; from those in the planning stages who can avail of advice and support in the development of an ePortfolio strategy, to those approaching scale who will benefit from insights and approaches from international best practice. Participants may choose the workshop most appropriate to them.
