e-Portfolio for Personal TutoringWhat is e-Portfolio?
Practice and success
Improvements and limitations
Confidentiality, data sharing and standardised practice
ConclusionsWhat is e-Portfolio and why are they saying such awful things about it?Electronic portfolio to be rolled out across the university;
Allows tutors to schedule meetings with tutees;
Provides an oversight of arranged meetings;
Allows tutors/tutees to add notes about the content of their meetings.Practice and Success85% - used to schedule meetings54% - added notes 77% - could see why adding notes would be beneficial (even if they did not do it this time round)71% - instances where notes were added by the tutorOf this 71%, 60% would not consider delegating this job to the tutee
Improvements and LimitationsLack of willingness
NESS is too similar / favoured
Should be more like social media
Lack of Outlook integration
Confidentiality, Data Sharing and Standardised PracticeSome teaching aspects may benefit from it being like social media
There is the risk of accidentally sharing something with somebody who you dont want to see it
No [to social media idea], Im always weary about confidentiality
No it should be private and strictly confidential by default. Its not a social media space
Id prefer a confidential route how would you regulate police social media?ConclusionsFirth (2010) and Symonds (2010) for e-Portfolios to be successful they have to replace previous practice, and be embedded into standardised practice
Willingness of tutorsHow should e-Portfolio be sold to unwilling tutors?
Standardised approach to managing informationSenior Tutor?University-wide or school-based?
Engagement of studentsHow to engage?How to enforce?
