This ePortfolio is available to all students and staff at Newcastle University.
The integrated 'Blog' and 'My Skills' have been specifically designed around educational requirements to raise awareness, encourage reflection and capture evidence of the acquisition of skill/outcomes; including the Newcastle Graduate Skills Framework (taught students) and Researcher Development Framework (researchers) and other skill sets can be customised on a programme or personal basis. The portfolio also supports Personal Tutoring/Research Supervision and processes such as Annual Progression and Project Approval.
The ePortfolio is developed and maintained by LTSU, building on over 10 years of experience of developing and implementing ePortfolios across a broad range of contexts (see http://www.eportfolios.ac.uk). Pedagogic support for using the portfolio is available from LTDS and there is also input from NUIT, including user support from IT Service Desk.
The cross-University ePortfolios Steering Group reports to the eLearning and Student Information Sub-Committee (formerly eLearning Steering Group) of the University Learning, Teaching and Student Experience Sub-committee (UTLSEC). Two management groups report to the Steering Group, one for Undergraduate and Post Graduate Taught, and another for Post Graduate Research.
