dc.description.abstractePortfolios are one of the latest web 2.0 tools available to educators in tertiary education. Their application and popularity are growing rapidly in Europe and North America in all subject areas (Stefani, Mason and Pegler 2007; Strivens 2007). Early studies indicate that the learner response to this tool in the first year of study has been mixed, with a notable lack of student engagement and ownership (Oradini and Saunders 2007; Pond 2007; Cosh 2007; Peacock & Gordon 2007; Tosh et al. 2005). This response may reflect confusion regarding the different roles of an ePortfolio within the learning and teaching environment. However, there has been little indepth, longitudinal research into the learner experience of such systems to date that might substantiate this. This presentation outlines a new study, which sets out to explore first-year learners' experience of using ePortfolios with the aim of providing practical, grounded guidelines to support institutional implementation and assist effective student engagement.
