From hype to Reality: e-Portfolios in Nursing

Maggie Carson, Anne Robertson

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract / Description of output

1. Problems of integrating e-portfolios into the first year of a nursing undergraduate curriculum
2. Student use and ownership of said portfolios.
E-portfolios are hailed as providing digital spaces for students to use and explore creative aspects of their own learning. Nursing is said to be both a competency based profession with set criteria and outcomes but also a reflective profession which champions individual personal development. Universities purport to develop transferable skills and foster personal development but they also have a tradition of rigorous academic standards. There are conflicts both within and between nursing and university education.
