Summary: This paper explores the evaluation of the transmediation from a paper-based to an electronic portfolio for a longitudinal learning experience in ‘Human Early Life Development’.
Description: Portfolios have become a common tool in health professional education, particularly for the professional domain. Electronic portfolios are replacing paper portfolios for a range of practical and pedagogic reasons. Our students undertake a longitudinal ‘Human Early Life Development’ learning activity early in their MBChB; recording child developmental data and their experiences in a paper portfolio. Students had expressed dissatisfaction with aspects of the portfolio. This study explores the move to an electronic portfolio.
