The experience of working as a team to complete a table reviewing various publications regarding ePortfolios was a relatively positive one. As a team we formed a plan using the Moodle forum and used a wiki page to decide who was going to focus on which publication, before completeing the table on the wiki along with a summary of the publication. The hardest aspect of this activity for me was trying to get useful information out of the EiFEL website which I felt was more about promoting events than being a clear source of information on eportfolios.
Relating the activity to the Framework for Personal and Professional Development, I would say the activity addressed the following criteria;
Proactivity- as we worked as a team to plan and carry out the activity
Critique- as we had to review and summarise the publications
Reflection- What I am doing with this blog post
Communication Related Competencies- Working together via the forum and Wiki
Technology Related Competencies – Working with the Wiki
Practice Related Competencies- Gaining an understanding of ePortfolios and their different uses
