    assignments, attendance
  • Evidence of doctoral level competencies
  • Building a professional academic identity

  • Record reflections on personal/professional
    development (multi-media)
  • Identity space (profiles)
  • Bibliographic management system

  • Access How does collaboration work?
  • Use and purpose Implications for learning,
    development and assessment
  • Issues Training, support, portability

Theme Questions
Model What is an ePortfolio? How can it be used to support learning, development, assessment? How can/should it be organised/structured/managed? Who would/should monitor development and progress? What are the benefits to the student, tutor, supervisor, mentor and/or Institution?
Ownership Who is it for? Who has overall control/ownership of it? How, what, and with whom can it be shared?
Accessibility How can it be accessed? Who can/should/needs to have access to it and at what level?
Tool Can it be integrated or linked to other systems, e.g. Registry? What are the practical issues and implications of implementation? What costs are involved? Which system should be used and what are the alternatives?
Support What training is needed and how could this be delivered?
