The University of Leeds has provided all staff and students with an ePortfolio on PebblePad. This is an opportunity to bring together all your teaching and learning evidence, reflection, discussions, planning and achievements in one online space.
To support staff who would like to learn how to use our ePortfolio to create innovative and reflective teaching and learning materials for their students and showcase portfolios for themselves, the University has created a series of live online PebblePad training sessions. These sessions will teach staff how to use PebblePad to create innovative and reflective teaching and learning materials, as well as your own showcase portfolios. Both basic and advanced skill sessions are available and we recommend that you access your PebblePad account before you join the sessions and take a quick tour of the PebblePad home page.
