The recent rise of ePortfolios is a global phenomenon: in Europe, Australia, the USA and Canada, there are now hundreds of thousands of ePortfolio owners and there will be millions by the end 2010. The ePortfolio movement is a movement that goes far beyond the field of initial education: ePortfolios are now becoming essential tools for personal development planning (PDP), managing continuing professional development (CPD), gaining accreditation for prior learning (APL) and career management. ePortfolios are also a central element in some national learning policies, as in Wales, England and The Netherlands, or regional policies, like in Tasmania (Australia), Minnesota (USA) and more recently in France where several regions are building regional ePortfolio platforms.

During the conference we will explore the progress made towards the goal set in 2003 in Poitiers, that by 2010 every citizen should have access to an ePortfolio.
