EDEN NAP webinar

“Possible use of a portfolio as European Development” webinar will take place on Wednesday, 5 June 2019 at 15:30 CEST with Alfredo Soeiro, Deputy Chair of the NAP Steering Committee, from the University of Porto, Portugal in EDEN’s dedicated Adobe Connect room.


E-portfolios can be understood as a digital dynamic tool that enables individuals to document, display and manage their skills, qualifications and experience throughout the lifespan of their career. e-portfolios help individuals be reflective, support their personal development, allow them to showcase their skills, qualifications and experience, and enable (self-) assessment of their skills. The new Europass framework adopted the approach of web-based tools to support individuals in documenting and describing their competences and qualifications acquired through learning and non-formal and informal learning. The Europass e-portfolio may build on the current Europass Online. Users may use the Europass e-portfolio to document and describe their personal information, and to manage careers and lifelong learning. The use of this tool should be discussed and analyzed, therefore participate and debate.
