Call for expressions of interest to participate in a review of the e-Portfolios infoKit and related resources.
JISC infonet is looking for up to 10 reviewers with a range of experience of using e-portfolios – from those who are quite new to e-portfolios to those with considerable experience; and from a range of roles (e.g. lecturer, PDP practitioner, IT manager) to contribute to a gap analysis of the e-Portfolios resources.
Those selected will be asked to consider the appropriateness of the content, format, structure, ease of navigation and overall usefulness of the resources from their perspective; to identify any gaps in information provided; and to provide structured feedback and suggestions by completing an extensive evaluation form. All comments and suggestions made will then be considered before a report is submitted to JISC recommending revisions to the resources to be undertaken during the latter half of 2010.
Successful applicants are required to review all sections, but provide detailed feedback on both compulsory sections plus any two of the other four optional sections available (you should indicate your chosen two on your application). The six infoKit sections are:
What are e-portfolios? (compulsory section)
Policy Drivers and Trends (optional section)
Purposes (optional section)
Perspectives (optional section)
Choosing, Implementing and Embedding e-Portfolios (optional section)
The Future of e-Portfolios (compulsory section)
The review process will commence from Monday 31st May 2010 and the work must be completed by Tuesday 31st August 2010. A grant of £3,000 will be paid to each participating institution upon completion.
Colleagues from interested institutions should email JISC infoNet (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Friday 30th April 2010 with a short summary of their current role, outlining their experience in the areas of e-portfolio use within the further or higher education sectors. Please include an indication of your preferences with regard to the two optional infoKit sections that you feel would be most appropriate for you to review. Confirmation of authorisation by appropriate line management to undertake this work and a commitment to completing the process byTuesday 31st August 2010 should also be included in the email.
Selected institutions will be informed on or before Friday 28th May 2010 and will receive further instructions, links to the evaluation tool and to the infoKit.
