If you’re wondering: why bother with Mahara? Surely this is too much of a headache to consider? Will it really be good for students? Then this session could be for you! It shares a case study, from a Youth Work perspective, about how to use Mahara as an e-portfolio in a practice based setting. It explores the process of transition from lever-arch portfolio submission to the use of Mahara and the elements that a teaching team need to consider when implementing this approach. Student voice and external examiner feedback will be presented, alongside the necessary changes to module guides, assessment methods and the support structures for students that were put in place. There will be examples of Mahara pages, an opportunity to ask questions and identify some tips for success.
