Getting portfolio-based learning at scale: top-down and bottom-up approaches

Thursday 22nd June 2017 BST

Thursday 22nd June 2017Thursday 22nd June 2017

Presenters:

Joy Robbins, Lecturer in Academic Development (PDP), Centre for Educational Development, University of Bradford
Emma Purnell, Senior Learning Technologist, Academic Support, Technology & Innovation (ASTI), Plymouth University

Emma will talk about the initial implementation of a university-wide project, the Plymouth Compass Portfolio (including reflections on HEAR extra-curricular activities), which aims to give every student the opportunity to engage in portfolio-based learning. She will present initial evidence outlining the extent to which this approach can push change in learning culture from the bottom up by encouraging the students to drive engagement.


Joy will talk about the creation and ongoing implementation of a faculty-wide policy on PebblePad use which aims to get every undergraduate programme to start or enhance their use of portfolio-based learning. She will present initial evidence on how this creates change from the top down by supporting and pushing staff to engage.


This webinar will encourage participants to broaden their focus from portfolios at a module or programme level to thinking about the larger landscape of the university, ideally incorporating a combination of these two approaches.

The IMPACT Project: Authentic Learning by Design

Tuesday 16th May 2017 ET

Tuesday 16th May 2017Tuesday 16th May 2017

The IMPACT (Interdisciplinary, Meaningful/Mentorship, Practice , Applied, Collaborative/Community Transformative) Project is a community-engaged interdisciplinary authentic learning experience for first-year engineering students, undergraduate biology students, and graduate-level occupational therapy students. Together, the students, staff, and faculty from these three communities work with local community members to identify a problem area, collaboratively design devices, and ultimately delivering a useable solution to one or more users. This project has been ongoing since 2012.

The IMPACT Project is built around a freshmen engineering course on engineering practice and the profession. Using a new problem each year, the approximately 1000 engineering students are tasked with designing a device for the user(s). The 200–300 biology and occupational therapy students volunteer as design reviewers. At the end of the project, a public showcase and competition results in a final best design and prototype which is handed to the user(s).

Learning in the IMPACT Project is facilitated with the use of several pieces of digital technology, including electronic learning portfolios. This webinar will describe the design of the IMPACT Project and the strategies employed to organize the disparate groups and schedules, methods used to capture students work, and how student collaboration across multiple disciplines was achieved and facilitated by digital technology.

Dissertation Management

Thursday 13th April 2017 BST

Thursday 13th April 2017Thursday 13th April 2017

In this webinar, Patrick Viney, Senior Learning Technology Advisor, will discuss how Northumbria University has successfully implemented PebblePad to manage its dissertation process. Each year, over 800 students undertake the Newcastle Business School dissertation module supported by over 100 academic staff. Patrick will talk about how the implementation of structured Workbooks has simplified the process for students and how reporting in PebblePad's assessment space (ATLAS) has provided a management overview of progress. The presentation will also include feedback from supervisors and tutors on the added value PebblePad has provided to this important process.

Programmatic assessment and eportfolio

Thursday 16th March 2017 GMT

Thursday 16th March 2017Thursday 16th March 2017

In this webinar Panos Vlachopoulos (Associate Dean Quality & Standards, Faculty of Arts) and Sherrie Love, (Senior Learning Designer, Faculty of Medicine & Health Sciences) from Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia, outline the design, development and implementation process of a pedagogically sound and technologically workable and sustainable solution to programmatic assessment using an eportfolio tool across an entire Faculty.

Programmatic Assessment is often part of a continuum which begins with the development of specific capabilities for graduates, and then aligns the capabilities with learning activities and measurable assessment opportunities across a program of study. The use of an electronic portfolio (eportfolio) tool, the provision of longitudinal tutorial support and credible feedback are often the key design challenges for programmatic assessment and these form key points of discussion in this webinar.
