ePortfolio 2003

ePortfolio 2003, the first international ePortfolio conference, Poitiers

About ePortfolio 2003, Poitiers France

General feedback from participants has been most enthusiastic. The opportunity to explore this important subject over two days and to see how it is being used in different sectors was clearly appreciated. The challenge of arriving at an acceptable working definition of the e-Portfolio that indicates what it is and what it is not still lies ahead and will be one of the first to be tackled by the European Consortium for the ePortfolio!

Some of the results of ePortfolio 2003

  • Progress on interoperability: the EPICC project (European Initiatives Co-ordination Committee)
  • Creation of the European Consortium for the ePortfolio (Europortfolio)
  • Organisation of national events worldwide to place ePortfolio developments in the national context.
  • Work on competencies for ePortfolios
  • Development of seminars for different sectors
  • Strengthened international links

The conference is available on video.

The sound for the first keynote is provided both in French and English, but all other sessions are in English.
