The eAoPP: moving from paper to an electronic portfolio

Mentor Update

Project drivers

• Cost: both in terms of production of the paper based portfolio and in staff time. • Grading in practice: We have estimated that the staff time needed to carry out the administration of the current system equates to 50K. • Carbon foot print as part of its “green agenda” By adopting an eAoPP the Faculty will stop printing 150.000 sheets of paper for each cohort, of which, in a 3 year programme, • Increased security in the assessment process: reduction in plagiarism issues 2

Academic tutor interacts with the student content and uses the eAoPP to quality monitor the student throughout their course Owned and utilised by the student to record learning over course Assessed and completed by a number of practice educators – up to 6 per practice experience We current ly estimate that we use approximately 15,000 practice educators Programme leads can quality monitor entire cohort for quality monitoring programme delivery Academic services retrieve practice grades and competence achievement

We anticipate that the eAoPP will assist the student to get from ‘course commencement’ to ‘first post’.
