The presentation will explore the design and development of e-portfolios for undergraduate and postgraduate students at the School of Pharmacy. Portfolios at the School of Pharmacy fulfil a number of functions depending on course requirements and student level; including the documentation of specific learning goals, the recording of ongoing learning processes and showcasing competencies (Hewett 2014). The presentation will highlight how the different functions of Reflect (WordPress) can be utilised to fulfil these requirements and the limitations of the platform.
In addition, the presentation will explore how design frameworks such as ‘The Laws of Simplicity’ (Maeda 2006) can be utilised as a reflective tool to improve useability and navigation.
