Abstract

This paper describes the multi-pronged approach Griffith University has been undertaking in its implementation of an enterprise-wide ePortfolio platform (i.e. Personal Learning Environment). At the heart of the multi-faceted approach is a culture of collaboration between academic groups, the central learning and teaching unit, technology services, careers and employment and student success. A key principle guiding this approach has been facilitation of the sharing of ideas and resources from the identification of user requirements, to the integration across courses and programs. Together, four streams of activities have been implemented which include: embedding within the curriculum by academics, enhancing University employability strategies, engaging students through extracurricular connections and embedding into professional activities of staff. This approach is being evaluated, allowing for qualitative and quantitative data collection. The systematic nature of both the implementation and evaluation is providing evidence that will benefit the current implementation and that of other programs.
