At Edith Cowan University (ECU) PebblePad is used as an integrative learning and teaching tool, designed to support students’ learning and ability to articulate this learning to others from first year to graduation and beyond. PebblePad at ECU is now in its ninth year. This case study discusses how ECU has continued to support program-long, program-wide PebblePad use in multiple Schools via a central unit. It follows the evolution of portfolio practice using PebblePad, including the adoption of showcase portfolios, reflection, employability, and demonstrating and evidencing capabilities. It also looks at how, with new courses coming on board, there is an opportunity for innovative growth.
The above case study is just one of twenty-five brilliant examples from our 2020 'Charting new courses in learning and teaching' conference. With case studies spanning degree apprenticeships, clinical assessment, interprofessional education, showcase portfolios, and many other contexts and disciplines, they are real stories of trailblazing innovation.
