What is ePortfolio?
Training available

ePortfolio is a tool designed by the University that supports students' reflective learning process.

It helps students to understand:

  • What they are learning and where this fits into their previous learning
  • How they learn best and what motivates them to learn
  • Why the learning has been useful and what they think they still need to learn
Case studies available
Personal Tutoring in ePortfolio

The Personal Tutoring system in the University is in place to provide students with pastoral support and advice while here. The Personal Tutor is there to help with any issues students may have, from personal problems that may be affecting studies, to giving advice when picking modules, to just being available for a chat about progress so far. To ensure a consistent approach to personal tutoring, it is a University requirement that tutors record their meetings with their tutees in ePortfolio.

ePortfolio A5 Leaflet

The minimum frequency of recorded meetings in ePortfolio is in line with the Personal Tutoring Framework, which states,"Tutors will meet with their students at least twice during their first semester in the University and offer students at least one tutor meeting per semester after Semester 1."
