1 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 1 Astrid Quasebart ESTA-Bildungswerk gGmbH senior project management Welcome to the e-portfolio workshop

2 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 2 definition of portfolio A portfolio is a purposeful collection of an individual’s work that exhibits his or her efforts, progress and achievements in one or more areas. The collection must include the individual’s participation in selecting contents, the criteria for selection; the criteria for judging merit, and evidence of individual self- reflection. Action! What is your idea?

This could be experience gained from totally different learning domains at different stages of life e.g. at home, at work, during leisure time activities, honorary post etc. These artefacts / evidences can be presented in diverse media types e.g. samples of writing as texts like evaluations or letters of commendation of supervisors, employers or peers, sound, graphic, video, photographs files. Action! What is your idea?

The user is able to reach a knowledge about her / his own diverse learning processes and contexts and the competences which arise from them. It is this awareness process which is key for the user. In some cases, people are not at all aware of being in possession of certain competences. But this knowing about one’s own strong and weak points is crucial when dealing with self-orientation. Here the development of an e- portfolio helps to support and valorise the self-managed learning process. The user will be aware of her / his general competences and skills. Action! What is your idea?

5 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 5 types of e-portfolios You can develop a learning e-portfolio, an assessment e-portfolio and an employment portfolio. The learning portfolio is a collection of documents in order to reflect the owner’s learning which is quite interesting for pupils and students. The assessment e-portfolio is focused on documenting material in order to portray achieved standards. It is a useful instrument for managing the one’s own human resources in relation to career planning like promotions. The employment e-portfolio is a design to represent all work-related documents important for the hiring process. Action! What is your idea?

6 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 6 added-value of creating an e-portfolio There are various benefits which arise from developing an e- portfolio. Some of them are listed here: - Reflection - Self-assessment - Skill development Action! What is your idea?

7 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 7 added-value of creating an e-portfolio Reflection: Choosing adequate pieces to put into an e-portfolio is connected with self-reflection. You have to reflect on yourself, on your education and work experiences. You are encouraged to be reflective throughout the entire portfolio process. New meaning and assessment will arise from this reflection which is quite important when positioning yourself in work environments.

8 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 8 added-value of creating an e-portfolio Self-assessment: The creator of an e-portfolio is constantly forced to revisit and refine the material which documents the own competences and experiences. The effect of this is a constant self-assessment. Skill development: While creating an e-portfolio the user has to develop certain information and communication technology skills to be able to use the right tools. But also other general skills / key skills such as written communication skills in the mother tongue and in a second language (mostly English) will be trained. Cultural awareness skills will be enhanced because the user has to take into account the effects on the reader.

9 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 9 informal learning process The e-portfolio approach can be seen as a construction process: The individual is able to construct her / his own informal learning process by recording, interpreting and evaluating her / his own knowledge. With the e-portfolio tool the user becomes an actor of knowledge management. She / he is no longer only the recipient. All naturally occurring informal and non-formal learning opportunities at work, in social activities, at home, in libraries, clubs or museums, etc. should be documented on an e-portfolio. In this way the informal learning aspect in the process of the life long learning will be ideally portrayed. Action! What is your idea?

10 definitions types added-value tutor role building-up informal learning awareness raising examples 10 building-up an e-portfolio Before starting to collect relevant documents you should ask yourself the question what you would like to achieve with your e- portfolio. Because the format of an e-portfolio depends on this answer. Action! What is your idea?

And do not forget: It is also your identity which will be presented. 2.Structure of the selected material has to be organised. This means the e-portfolio structure should be exhaustive and creative in its presentation.
