Creating a successful implementation of PebblePad: The University context

    Research output: Book chapter/Published conference paperChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review


    As part of a university-wide implementation of PebblePad, staff in Griffith Sciences now have access to a cutting-edge platform which they can use to
    engage their students in a variety of learning activities. PebblePad is an advanced
    commercial ePortfolio, and personal learning network platform that allows students to complete a variety of tasks to enhance their learning. This chapter will detail the university-wide implementation and the implications for academics in the University and Griffith Science’s Group. The university-wide implementation has been led by academics in the sciences who were already using other platforms. Their experience enabled academics to create superior learning designs to implement with this platform. Initially, academics were invited to be part of the university-wide Innovator Group which allowed for training and support to be provided throughout the year and on a just-in-time basis. Data is presented in this chapter from the university-wide
    implementation of both students and staff. Usage data over time is also presented. Overall, the implementation of PebblePad throughout Sciences has been successful with the uptake described in the chapter.
