What is the project?

SCAFFOLD means SUPPORTING. This research project aims to design an evidence-based, state-of-the-art ePortfolio that supports healthcare students in their competence development at the workplace. During the SCAFFOLD-project, 4 doctoral students will delve into the scientific literature and into specific aspects of current ePortfolios. The new, evidence-based insights will provide the basis for developing the state-of-the-art ePortfolio. The impact of an ePortfolio on quality of healthcare and healthcare education at the workplace has a central role in this project.

What is the SCAFFOLD ePortfolio?

The Scaffold ePortfolio is a digital, learner-centered tool that documents, scaffolds, visualizes and proves (future) healthcare professionals’ continuous competency development during workplace learning. It facilitates and fosters the learning cycle of goal setting, reflection, feedback and (self-)assessment, as well as the interaction between all actors. The ePortfolio optimally uses smart multimedia technology to ensure an easy (=user-friendly), fast (= efficient), safe and regulatory compliant usage.
