Van Ostaeyen, S., Embo, M., Schellens, T., & Valcke, M. (2022). Training to Support ePortfolio Users During Clinical Placements: a Scoping Review. Medical Science Educator, 32(4), 921–928. https://doi.org/10.1007/s40670-022-01583-0
ePortfolios are frequently used to support students’ competency development, and teachers’ and clinical mentors’ supervision during clinical placements. User training is considered a critical success factor for the implementation of these ePortfolios. However, there is ambiguity about the design and outcomes of ePortfolio user training. A scoping review was conducted to consolidate evidence from studies describing the design of ePortfolio user training initiatives and their outcomes. The search yielded 1180 articles of which 16 were included in this review. Based on the results, an individual, ongoing training approach which grounds in a fitting theoretical framework is recommended.
