Stage one of the project explored the current scope of national and international ePortfolio practice in higher education in Australia. An analysis of ePortfolio contexts identified government policy, technical standards, academic policy and learning and teaching as contexts where strategies may be employed to support effective practice. The types of ePortfolios used was documented and issues in relation to implementation identified. Additionally, innovative practice in ePortfolio use in higher education was explored and recommendations made to guide policy developments.

Zen and the art of transdisciplinary postgraduate studies
This is the Summary Report for a project focused on developing an evaluative frame for the formative and summative outputs of transdisciplinary/interdisciplinary research for use by students and supervisors. While the project title focuses on postgraduate studies, the project focus is applicable to any such research activity, including undergraduate papers. It provides helpful information in a learning and teaching area that is a current and growing practice, but with little practical guidance for either supervisors or students. Transdisciplinary/interdisciplinary research is growing in Australia as researchers appreciate the value of working across disciplines to be relevant to the complexity of real life applications of research knowledge. The core question of this project is the development of ways to evaluate the outcomes of such research, whether a thesis or research paper, along with formative processes to guide supervisors and students to quality outcomes. Reading the Summary Report can be of value for two purposes. Firstly, it gives information on the conduct of a major learning and teaching development activity that others planning such an activity could find useful, including the process of a large action research project. The second purpose is that it explains the theoretical underpinnings of the project, including a review of research literature informing the overall project. The practical outcomes from the project are provided in separate resource documents: Quality Criteria; Ideas for Good Practice; Workshop Resources; Workshop Facilitator Slides. These resources can be used separately to guide supervision practice, or together to run an actual workshop on the topic.The Summary Report has a clear writing style. As the report is necessarily brief and addresses the whole conduct and outcomes of the project, some readers may find the theoretical explanations underpinning the project, provided in one and a half pages, dense. However, this brief explanation provides a number of research references that could guide further reading by a person interested in this area of teaching and learning.

ePortfolio use by university students in Australia: Informing excellence in policy and practice
ReMarksPDF Editor - Final Report
ReMarksPDF Stage 2 further develops the ReMarks PDF and XML marking editors. Stage 2 involves development of an e-submission and assessment allocation system, tracking and mapping of learning outcomes, and business intelligence features. Further work will involve developing a dimensional data model and associated database to enable reporting using different business intelligence systems. A flexible model for mapping and tracking of learning outcomes will be created to cater for the development of learning outcomes through one or more levels, all mapped to unit teaching and assessment, whether formative or summative. The project will continue the development of enterprise level solutions to student assessment feedback.
AeP Final Report
This report presents the findings of the AeP project survey (AeP PS). Current and emerging e-portfolio practice in post compulsory education is described, and the e-portfolio scene in late 2010 and late 2007 are compared. The critical success factors for e-portfolio use were widely acknowledged to relate to funding and staffing, as well as the need for adequate support for students in areas of pedagogy, or ‘e-portfolio learning’, and IT. Good planning processes and appropriate staff development were also significant factors.
