Abstract

This report presents the findings of a significant OLT-funded Australian study on the use of ePortfolios in business education in Australian universities. The project explores the potential of ePortfolios as a learning paradigm and pedagogy to meet the challenges that business education faces. These challenges include the necessity to continuously innovate and cater to the educational expectations of a generation of tech-savvy students, and the recruitment expectations of graduate employers. This report highlights the implications for ePortfolio pedagogy moving forward, and the potential of ePortfolios to enhance student learning outcomes in the 21st century business education context. Importantly, while the focus is on business education, the resources, findings and recommendations may be applicable in other disciplines.
