What was covered in the session today? We presented our e-portfolios to each other but we also explained the rational behind design choices and content choices. How was it useful? It showed where everyone is in their work but it also generated a lot of ideas that could be incorporated into our own work. It was great to see the different ways to present, organise and most importantly what to include. What thoughts came up during the session? At the moment there is an obvious divide between the content and the presentation with different people falling on different sides of the fence. There is a great opportunity to help each other with our strengths and weaknesses. What did you learn? The portfolio is an important academic and personal resource, I thought if it purely as a piece of coursework but have now come to regard it as a very important personal resource which I need to develop further. What will you do with the information i.e. what next? Schedule in some regular time every week to work on the e-portfolio and look at ways of getting students to construct something similar for themselves. It could also be assessed as part of their web design course.
