INTRODUCING LEARN’S EPORTFOLIO ePortfolio (eP) is a tool in LEARN that allows you to store, organize, reflect on and share items that represent your learning in a course, or across many courses in a program. You can add documents and other types of files into your portfolio, organize them, share them with others, and collect feedback on shared items. eP is accessed from the top navigation bar when you are in your course in LEARN:

The first screen you see when you enter eP is your Dashboard. The Newsfeed section of your dashboard displays items that have been recently viewed, edited or commented upon.

2

From your dashboard, you can access My Items on the left navigation panel. The My items page allows you to create and store artifacts, reflections, collections and presentations.

Artifacts are digital files that represent your learning in a course. Artifacts may be documents, graphics, audio files, video files, presentations, or other form of digital media. Artifacts may be uploaded from your computer, imported from a course, or created in LEARN (e.g., HTML files, audio files, and forms). Reflections are spaces in eP that allow you to reflect on and think critically about your learning in a course.

3

Collections are groups of artifacts, reflections and presentations. They are like folders, except that an item can belong to many different collections at the same time. For example, you may add a personal narrative essay (e.g., a .doc file) to a collection called “ENGL 109 ONLINE” and to a collection called “Creative Writing” and there will only be one copy of that file (artifact).

Presentations allow you to compile other eP items (artifacts, reflections etc) to showcase your learning in a course. In some courses, you will be provided with a template presentation which you will be asked to customize over the term. More information about this presentation is available in the eP Help Guide.

POSTING INSTRUCTOR FEEDBACK TO MY ITEMS (INCLUDING DOCUMENTING YOUR REACTIONS AND FUTURE PLANS BASED ON THE FEEDBACK IN THE ARTIFACT DESCRIPTION FIELD)
HOW DO I ADD INSTRUCTOR FEEDBACK FROM DROPBOX TO MY ITEMS AREA?
These instructions will outline how to add instructor feedback from a course drop box to My Items in your ePortfolio as an authenticated artifact. You can then use this to add to presentations where you want to show the examples of feedback you have received. If feedback has been assigned to your dropbox submission, you can add this to your eportfolio. You will then have an artifact with authenticated feedback. You can use this as evidence of your growth and development over time. For example, if the feedback on a submission indicates that you should spend more attention to detail and a couple of years from now , after acting upon that feedback, you now get feedback which states “great attention to detail” you can include the two artifacts to show how you are able to incorporate feedback and improve your writing. Remember: Images that are not your own must be properly cited. 1. Select the Dropbox link in the top navigation bar. Select View in the Feedback column of the appropriate dropbox.

4

2.

Select the Add to ePortfolio link in the grey navigation bar

3. Important! Enter a name for the artifact (for example, “Surname_Photo Essay with TA feedback”- be sure to be specific with the name. Including a course number and assignment description will help you locate it in the future), and add a description in the Description field. For example, describe how you will revise your essay based upon the feedback you received. Complete the following sentence: “Based on this feedback, in future I will...”. Enter descriptive tags in the New Tags field; then click the Add button in the bottom right corner of the screen.

5

Often it is NOT necessary to include the folder submission files with the artifact especially if the initial submission came from your ePortfolio. For example, if you have submitted an ePortfolio presentation, or an artifact from your ePortfolio, it is not necessary to include the submission as you already have the submission in your ePortfolio. Simply UNCHECK THE BOX to avoid adding a duplicate of your submission. Deselect this option to reduce the size of the artifact that is created. Alternatively, if you are continuing to work on a presentation over time and want to keep a record of how your presentation has developed, keep the check mark in the box. If you check the box, copies of the submission files are included when the folder is exported to your ePortfolio.

Tags can be added to every item in your ePortfolio. Tags allow you to more easily "mine" your ePortfolio for various artifacts on a particular "topic". This feature becomes very helpful when you have dozens and dozens of items, some that you may have added years ago. You can add as many tags as you would like.

4. Your newly uploaded file, including instructor feedback, will now appear at the top of your My Items list. The lock indicates that this contains feedback from the drop box and cannot be altered.

Click on the Add Tag button. Ensure that “Allow others to add/view comments if they have sufficient permission” is checked. Click Save.

22

ASSOCIATING ITEMS WITH A REFLECTION
When you create reflections, it is often helpful to associate the artifacts upon which you are reflecting. Note that artifacts cannot be associated with a reflection until AFTER the reflection is saved.
You can associate reflections with artifacts, collections, and presentations. If you share a reflection associated with another item, only the name of the associated item is available. If you share the associated item, users can view the reflection as part of the item. This makes it easy for users to see how your reflection is connected to the other items in your ePortfolio. Associating a reflection with a presentation makes the reflection available in the Review Presentation area – it does not display the reflection inside the presentation. To display the reflection inside a presentation, you must add it to a specific page in the presentation. Examples: You can create a reflection to record a goal for yourself and then associate artifacts, collections and presentations that show your progress toward that goal. You can reflect on a specific piece of work, like an essay or a drawing, by uploading your work as an artifact and then associating the reflection with that artifact.

1. Create a reflection and SAVE it. 2. You will see the option to ADD Associated Items. Click ADD.

OPTIONAL - Add an appropriate tag for easier searching later. In this example, the course code was used to create the tag. Two word tags must be enclosed by quotation marks. Click on the Add Tag button.

23

3. Choose the type of item which you will be associating with the reflection.

4. You will be taken to a list of items available in your MY ITEMS area from which to choose. Select the item(s) by clicking on the box to the left of the name of the item. Click ADD.

You can enter the name of the item in the search area, and/or click the link and filter by name, tags or description.

24

5. The associated items will now be added below the reflection. In future, when you review your reflection the items to which you were referring will be associated with the reflection.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY EPORTFOLIO PRESENTATION TO THE DROPBOX?
1. Click on Dropbox in the course navigation bar.

2. Select the appropriate dropbox folder from the list.

25

3. Select Add a File.

4. Select ePortfolio

26

5. Select the ePortfolio presentation you wish to place in the dropbox folder. You may use the Search function to find it quickly. Once selected (click on checkbox), hit the Select Item button.

Proffessional Development

...INTRODUCTION Career development has become of more importance in recent years as organisations utilise the investment of human resource development to an advantage (McCarthy & Garavan, 1999). Career or professional development for the purposes of this report can be defined as an attempt to help the individual analyse their abilities and interests to guide their placement, progression, and development through various assessment activities (Gunnigle & Flood, 1990, p. 172). Literature suggests that the effectiveness of several management and professional development activities can be enhanced by paying attention to managerial self-awareness and variables related to self-awareness like self-efficacy (McCarthy & Garavan, 1999). Admundson (1995), argues that the two key variables that moderate career decisions are the individual’s self-awareness and self-efficacy which are essential because high levels of self-awareness and self-efficacy enables the individual to exert more control over long term effects and are in a better posistion to respond proactively to situations. Therefore, analysing managerial and professional development in regard to self-awareness creates a positive effect to both personal and professional enhancements. This report posits the importance of managerial self-awareness to the effectiveness of personal and professional development. It aims to develop understanding of self awareness for career development gauged from feedback tools, specifically the......
