About this book

This book focuses on essential findings concerning emerging practices of student learning through the teaching and learning benefits of the electronic portfolio (ePortfolio) in a range of disciplines at Australian universities. It explores the latest research on ePortfolios, teaching quality, future research directions for tertiary learning and teaching, institutional agendas in higher education, and the role that the ePortfolios can play in supporting improvements in pedagogic practice and student outcomes.

Included in these agendas is research into the development of higher education through the technologising of pedagogy, learner identities in discrete disciplines, and the praxis of individual university teachers. The book covers accounts of academic learning success and challenges across current higher education subject areas. By presenting case study accounts of ePortfolio use, it reveals the importance of defining and documenting how we can meaningfully develop learner portfolios in research, teaching and learning at Australian universities. With an intentional research base, the book draws on work conducted inside and outside Australia and highlights how the ePortfolio can help tertiary staff prepare for the impact of a student-created portfolio on teaching, learning, and subsequent academic scholarship.
