Keynote: Derek Robertson

16:00 : Derek Robertson / @derekrobertson

Derek’s PressED keynote will detail the circumstances and events that led to the development of the WordPress ePortfolio in the undergraduate teacher education programmes at the University of Dundee. He will discuss the rationale for its design and how the affordances of WordPress meant that it could more than meet the aspirations of his School’s ePortfolio vision and in so doing, make a significant contribution to the development of the culture of the professionally reflective teacher. He will detail the challenges and opportunities that have arisen over the course of this initiative and will also talk about the lessons learned and how he and his colleagues have changed aspects of how the WordPress ePortfolio is managed and supported on the programme.
