Why would I want to create an eP?
I believe that our eP is helping us develop and reflect on our learning. It will also, help with me remember why I am doing this and different teaching and learning styles I could provide to my students. Also, reviewing others ePs in my field will help me relate with them. I believe if I continue with my portfolio post program I can use this as a tool with my students and help them with their learning experience.
Having the capability to reflect back on my learning will help remind me to stay on the path. As our reading stated students sometimes forget from class to class what they have learned, if they had a portfolio to follow they could stack their learning on top of one another. The little things that might have been difficult to them and they might forget could be there for them to reflect on.
This tool would be excellent for my students as they enter their career in the health field. Not only for a resource or resume, but for a reflection to remember the little things that they might have forgot when the enter practice.
Also, being able to highlight social networks and getting feedback from others will help not only me but my students learning process.
