ePortfolioAssist has been designed to help teachers and student use ePortfolios. It has been developed from a two year government funded project led by the University of Sydney: ePortfolios in Creative and Performing Arts.
EPORTFOLIOS IN CREATIVE AND PERFORMING ARTS IS A TWO YEAR OLT FUNDED NATIONAL PROJECT THAT COMMENCED IN 2011, AND LED BY DR JENNIFER ROWLEY.
This project extends the use of ePortfolios to undergraduate students in units of study at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, University of Western Sydney, Queensland Conservatorium (Griffith University), and Curtin University, by creating ePortfolio'templates' that provide students with a capstone product of their learning. Creating an ePortfolio to document students' academic and artistic learning outcomes for enhanced employability in the arts sector is a key objective. This will be achieved through tailoring the design of templates for each specialization, training staff and students in these processes and embedding assessable components within the curriculum. The undertaking of cross institutional evaluations of the development of ePortfolio templates will assist in the integration of ePortfolios for Arts students at Australian universities.
