2 Goals Description about Digital Portfolio (DP) and its use in Higher Education Analysis of the main pedagogical aspects of the Learning Digital Portfolios DP as a tool to reflection on its use to improve the learner autonomy in our European context. UNTELE 2004 © Olatz López Fernández

3 Introduction Definition of DP: Method of compilation of works as evidences of learning. It is developed by the learner during a period of time, and integrates feedback from his/her teacher and peers. Furthermore, DP is used as a tool for formative and summative assessment UNTELE 2004 © Olatz López Fernández

4 Introduction Tendency in DP towards current theories of learning and language learning autonomy: Individual activities Collaborative activities Active learner: taking decisions about his/her own process of learning in a conscious way Teacher (and others) as a facilitator UNTELE 2004 © Olatz López Fernández

6 Communicative Approaches in ALL European Language Portfolio (ELP) According to the Principles and Guidelines (Council for Cultural Cooperation, 2000), the ELP “reflects the Council of Europe’s concern with… respect for diversity of cultures and ways of life” and is “a tool to promote plurilingualism and pluriculturalism”. The language passport “describes… intercultural learning experiences”, while the language bibliography includes “information on linguistic and cultural experiences gained in and outside formal educational contexts” (Little & Simpson, 2003: p. 3).

11 Pedagogical criteria for DP Proposal structured in 3 macro categories with 11 areas of pedagogical criteria: 1. Context of DP 2. Components of DP: Products and Processes of Learning 3. Agents of DP Specifications: Learning DP, focused in the university student in general. UNTELE 2004 © Olatz López Fernández
