An Investigation into the use of E-Portfolio Tools to Enhance the Final Year Engineering Project Experience. [Poster presentation].

By Ray E. Sheriff and Felicia Li Chin Ong

Abstract

yesDuring the course of a Final Year Engineering Project (FYEP), students need to apply a variety of skills, including time management, project management and personal reflection. Students can use logbooks to demonstrate progress to their supervisors, who may then provide feedback through formative assessment. Within the School of Engineering, Design and Technology, the FYEP concludes with an assessed report and poster presentation. \ud \ud The University provides all students with access to an e-portfolio tool (PebblePAD). E-portfolio tools allow students to generate, store and share evidence, minute meetings and record reflections. There is possible scope for enhancing the FYEP experience through the use of e-portfolio tools by, for example, maintaining communication, monitoring progress and providing feedback. \ud \ud The poster provides an introduction to the project, highlighting a sample of survey results from FYEP students and supervisors, respectively.Royal Academy of Engineering National HE STEM Programm
