McCowan, Colin R. & Finn, Fran A. (2007) Using the Student e-Portfolio in a Large Australian University as a Learning Tool to Assist in the Transition to Employment. In HCSIT Summit: E-Portfolio International Conference, 16-19 October 2007, Maastricht, The Netherlands.


In 2004, after twelve months of detailed planning, piloting and consultation with academics, employers and students, the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) developed and implemented a staged introduction of a Student e-Portfolio (Se-P). The purpose statement which guided the development process was:

To enable students to record, reflect on, catalogue, retrieve and present their experiences, activities, and artefacts they produce both inside and outside of university life as evidence of the skills developed while at QUT that contribute significantly to their lifelong learning and career development.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
