Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda, is one of the leading Higher Education Institutions in the East Africa region. They are also one of the participating universities in the Partnership for Higher Education (PHEA) Educational Technology Initiative (ETI). They are undertaking three projects with the aim of promoting the use of educational technology for teaching and learning. As part of the university’s move from teacher-centred to student-centred learning, there has been a motivation for the use of portfolios to deepen learning through reflective thinking, authentic assessment and to monitor progress. I spent a day with the project team of the “ePortfolio” project who are looking at the feasibility of adopting and rolling out the use of electronic portfolios at Makerere and other participating universities. The project aims to survey staff and students regarding policies, infrastructure, knowledge and attitudes as well as to survey ICT capacity. The project team (a mix of academics and students) have created a prototype (see picture below) to be used in a pilot for the College of Health Sciences. The pilot will be run early next year.
