Did you know that everyone at the University, student or staff member, has access to a free ePortfolio space? It is called PebblePad and can be accessed via the MyEd portal.
On Wednesday morning (10-12) and Monday afternoon (2-3) come and meet the PebblePad support team who can chat you through the benefits of using your ePortfolio.
PebblePad is a secure, web-based tool that allows you to start capturing your experiences and reflect on them in a structured, re-usable manner – for example using the MyEdGE workbook that is available for all students. PebblePad aims to help you evidence more than simply a degree classification. It aims to help you evidence smaller achievements and skills that you have developed throughout your time at University, not necessarily just in the tutorial room! This kind of record can be incredibly useful when it comes to filling out application forms, whether for jobs or further education opportunities it is helpful to have these reflections to demonstrate the softer skills that you have cultivated.
So, come and chat to us, if you want to know more or have any questions – there will be free pens! We look forward to meeting you.
