PebblePad, the ePortfolio software platform was adopted by the University in early 2013 and utilised by one undergraduate and one postgraduate program as early adopters in the same year. In 2014 we began a two year university-wide implementation program. This semester 22 courses across 10 programs are using PebblePad in their curriculum. The flexibility and versatility of this platform means that students can create and keep evidence (assets) of their work over time, ranging from simple experiences or file uploads right through to scaffolded weekly tutorial workbooks, which then showcase their work over an entire semester. Fieldwork reflections, competencies and journals are a few of the other elements that can be created. We now have many examples of how PebblePad is used in learning and teaching across the University. This presentation will showcase pedagogically-based resources developed by your colleagues inside the software to help you envisage the potential value of similar resources in your teaching practice. There will be an opportunity at the end of the presentation for questions.
