Using e-portfolios as a catalyst for change: how does the e-portfolio change students’ views of their academic and employability development at university?
- One of the aims of introducing new e-portfolio software was to highlight the many opportunities for PDP and employability skills that are available to students at the University. There are two key ways in which MyFolio does this; firstly, it has space within it to provide students with Kent-specific help on PDP (the PDP planner and the skills audit), secondly it has the facility to create group pages within it which represent the different stakeholders who contribute to the Kent employability strategy.

Engaging first-year undergraduates with critical self-awareness pilot
- One of the five graduate attributes that Brookes is now committed to as part of its student experience strategy is “Personal literacy and critical self-awareness”. To both highlight and “kick start” this attribute, it was proposed that, as part of induction in semester one, all first-years might engage with one or more ‘personality’ inventories that might help them to identify and then reflect on their strengths, skills, interests, and motivations. Coupled with this, they could also be entitled to a reflective conversation with an academic advisor, based on the outcomes of the inventory/ies. To test both the efficacy and practicality of this proposal, it was agreed to carry out a pilot during the second semester of academic year 11/12, with 1st year students from one module in each of the four Faculties.
