Formatted Abstract/Summary
The growth in the use of e-portfolios across all sectors of education in recent years has been dramatic (Truer & Jensen, 2003; Barrett, 2001). For some this is a case of technology catching up with existing teaching pedagogy, for others a new electronic tool that offers the possibility of incorporating; electronic artefacts, the World Wide Web and databases for storing, sorting and viewing artefacts and experiences (Truer & Jensen, 2003; Barrett, 2001). E-portfolios are a National Learning Infrastructure Initiative (NLII) key theme, because their use has the potential to transform teaching and learning so that it is more learner centred and outcomes oriented (NLII).

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in seeking to provide students with the best possible employment potential has released an e-Portfolio, designated the QUT Student Portfolio. The Student Portfolio is utilised as a reflective learning tool across a range of faculties and learning contexts as defined by an increasingly diverse range of graduate capabilities. Participants at this seminar will benefit from discussion with the presenters whose experiences spans executive initiation, project management, design, development and the implementation of an e-portfolio. This seminar will be a practical demonstration of the use of the QUT Student Portfolio using an authentic task activity, addressing of the QUT Portfolio graduate capabilities and culminating in a reflective activity within the Student Portfolio.

The seminar will examine the position of portfolios in fostering the deeper involvement of learners in the planning of, and making them more responsible for, the achievement of their educational goals (DiBiase, 2002).
