The ELP project is about using e-portfolios with learners at different transition points in their lifelong learning journey to support personal or professional development.

Who we are?

The project team is made up of members from the University of Bradford, The University of Leeds School of Medicine, Leeds Metropolitan Faculty of Health.

Who used the e-portfolios?

There were five distinct groups of learners who participated in using e-portfolios for the project.

  1. Students in school (year 12) or college thinking about applying to University. (Context 1, cases 1 & 2.)
  2. Students in school or college thinking about applying specifically to medicine or other related fields. ( Context 1, case 3.)
  3. Foundation year Clinical Science students thinking about transferring to study medicine. (Context 3, case 6.)
  4. Nursing students for their practice placements. (Context 2, case 5.)
  5. Pre-Registration House Officers for their foundation years training portfolio. (Context 2, case 4.)

How did the learners use the e-portfolio?

The e-portfolio was used to record evidence of skills or competencies and to reflect on learning. In some of the cases the e-portfolio was used to help make decisions about future study and to compile a personal statement.

What e-portfolio tools were used?

The project used the PebblePAD e-portfolio and the Bodington VLE logbook.
