Johanna Jordaan, Svetlana King and Jenny McDonald
Portfolios have gained traction as a tool to facilitate reflective practice in higher education, post-graduate training, and professional development. In health professions education, portfolios (and reflection) can be met with resistance from students and practising clinicians alike.
Through this session, we intend to draw collective pearls of wisdom from those with experience in supporting learners to engage in portfolio-based learning and assessment. Specifically, we want to understand how participants address ‘the three Ps’ of portfolios (i.e., promotion, preparation, and practice) to develop a culture in which portfolios are embraced as a pathway to productive learning.
