|dc.description.abstract||This is a descriptive study about electronic portfolio and its utilisation in Higher Education. It
presents and reflects upon the conceptual framework, purposes and benefits of e-portfolios
and analyses the different implications of its implementation in the process of learning at the
tertiary level of education.
The study has been guided by the following research question: How can teachers and students
make use of e-portfolios in the process of teaching and learning? Therefore the importance of
the utilisation of e-portfolio as a tool for learning has been in the centre of the study and
discussions about its applications. This study examines in depth the process and products of eportfolios
and how they can be used as a pedagogical tool integrated to “learning to learn”
The author has kept the focus on three main purposes, which are followed throughout the
· To present a practical experience about the use of student e-Portfolio at the tertiary
· To contribute to the search for improvement of teaching practice at tertiary education
covering the new demands European convergence;
· To raise discussions about the use and design of e-portfolio as a valid tool for teaching
at the university level.
The practical activities carried out in two different universities located in two different
countries provided the author with the opportunity to examine the implementation of eportfolios
in two totally different contexts. Both experiences are described and reflected upon
in the study.
The main conclusions point out to the importance of using e-portfolios in Higher Education.
If properly implemented and used well, e-portfolio can be a powerful tool for capturing
student learning because it allows mentors, lecturers or trainers to keep the trace of the
students learning. Institutions need to be aware of the impact that electronic portfolio
development can have. Results suggest that it is recommendable to integrate e-portfolios with
the new forms of pedagogy oriented towards student centered contexts.||en_US
