7 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, Aims of the Project A Model for the implementation process of ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM for the Study degrees Social Work and Health Management in Tourism ePortfolio value for user groups, needs and expectations Top down approach Bottom up approach Networking and knowledge sharing with ePortfolio experts Round Table Discussion

8 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, Interviews with heads of the study degrees ePortfolio Needs professional management for students and graduates graduate network of students Expectations Students apply for suitable placements,job orientation, employment chances support the decision processes Graduates stay in contact, exchanging information, form co- operations Not Needs using ePortfolios within teaching units

9 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, Focus groups and questionnaires with students and graduates 43 Social work students from all study years (1st, 2nd, 3rd and graduates) Positive attitude towards ePortfolio Very interested, Value method for professional management Value method for learning management Critical towards Data security Usability of tools Effort required Ideas and wishes for the implementation Discussion Forums Support from teachers Access from first semester and unlimited time after graduation

10 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, Interviews with teachers 2 teachers from Health Management in Tourism Value Professional management Graduates Network Their didactical role in supporting Learning processes (learning management) is not clear Need for training in the use of ePortfolio and Help Desk support for teaching staff for students Wishes One teacher for each study degree Not to integrate in study units Should depend on the initiative of the student Critical towards Effort

11 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, ePortfolio Round Table Experts from Austrian Universities Martin Ebner (Technical University of Graz), Brigitte Römmer-Nossek (University of Vienna), Wolfgang Greller (University of Klagenfurt), Erwin Bratengeyer (Donau University, Krems) Presentation of Good Practice Examples Resulting suggestions for implementation of ePortfolios Create a shared understanding of ePortfolio in the organisation / across study degrees Choose one type of ePortfolio and test its implementation Pay attention to the didactical concept Implement step by step Plan for data security before implementation Start with a ready made ePortfolio tool before developing own solution Have clear aims and objectives Give students responsibility for own ePortfolio Plan for financial coverage

12 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, Summary of results Definition of ePortfolios – tricky even among the experts Job search and job orientation Time, effort and usability Data security Tools for ePortfolio

13 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, FH JOANNEUM ePortfolio implementation strategy Integration of ePortfolio and Community Platform networking Students´ data are during and after the studies available The development of one new system is more efficient (in terms of hosting and financial aspects) than the development of two parallel systems Data and information are accessible in one system (higher usability and accessibility) ePortfolio - opportunities for a more holistic approach to learning profiles of competencies opportunities for documentation of skills in different learning contexts (archive of authentic/diverse evidence) opportunities for reflection in different learning contexts to integrate learning experiences (help students and graduates in articulate and evaluate what they have learned) collect and organize artefacts that document their performance (readily accessible electronic format online)

14 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, FH JOANNEUM ePortfolio implementation strategy ePortfolio - opportunities for a more holistic approach to learning profiles of competencies opportunities for documentation of skills in different learning contexts (archive of authentic/diverse evidence) opportunities for reflection in different learning contexts to integrate learning experiences (help students and graduates in articulate and evaluate what they have learned) collect and organize artefacts (CVs, Certificates, Documents, etc) that document students and graduates performance (readily accessible electronic format online) Integration of ePortfolio and Community Platform for graduate networking Students´ data are during and after the studies available (with the corresponding author rights) The development of one new system is more efficient (in terms of hosting and financial aspects) than the development of two parallel systems Data and information are accessible in one system (higher usability and accessibility)

15 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, FH JOANNEUM ePortfolio implementation strategy Community Platform considerations Communication Tools: blackboard (events and news: Jobs, vocational training, etc.), discussion board and/or Weblogs, chat Personal space for users: folder for documents / Certifications / Projects / etc. Virtual space for Self-presentation: CV, Foto, Contact Virtual space for teamwork: Group rooms: folder for documentation and several communication tools Information provided by the study field: e.g. questionnaires, vacant job positions, internship positions Job stock market: Links to several job stock markets

16 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, FH JOANNEUM ePortfolio implementation strategy Training for teaching staff to support consistent and unified implementation Integrate ePortfolio into the classroom Support students generic and soft skills Multidisciplinary competences Broader perspectives in studying and job search Management of own learning processes Holistic approach to learning Supporting each other after studies in a graduates network

17 ePortfolio at FH JOANNEUM: ICL, Villach, FH JOANNEUM ePortfolio Next Steps Partnership building between ZML and interested FHJ study fields in order to assure financial and human resources. Network building and information exchange between ePortfolio project team and the ePortfolio team of fnm-austria (www.fnm-austria.at)www.fnm-austria.at Network building between ePortfolio project team, graduates, students, instructors and head of departments Development of a tangible implementation concept based on the results of the present project Usability and effectiveness evaluation of several tools to develop a technical specification catalogue. Implementation, evaluation and consolidation of the ePortfolio Concept
