Recently GippsTAFE staff members attended a training session to introduce them to the use of Mahara ePortfolios. The session focussed on the use of ePortfolios as a way for students to gather evidence of their skills and experiences and present this for the purpose of Recognition of Prior Learning assessments or to document tasks undertaken by apprentice or trainees in the work place.
The concept of creating views that could be used as templates for specific purposes was also discussed as well as how to use ePortfolios as evidence of engagement for auditing purposes.
Staff were encouraged to create their own ePortfolio as a way of exploring the tool and its application to their individual teaching needs.
