Undertaking work placements
Work placements are a critical means for students to apply their learning in an authentic context, as well as develop new skills and understandings. Eportfolios can reinforce the learning that occurs on work placement when students use a Blog to review and reflect on their experiences. They can also gather Evidence of their learning (through photos, videos, etc) which can be attached to Blog Posts or uploaded as Artefacts.
