Abstract/Summary The ePortfolios in Business Education project sought to explore the transformative potential of ePortfolios in business education. In the current higher education context, educators and higher education institutions are increasingly looking for innovative ways to enhance learning outcomes through technology, and the importance of advancing change and innovation in teaching and learning (T&L) is ostensible (Johnson et al., 2015). Given their potential to aid in the development of engaged, reflective lifelong learners, and develop and showcase employability skills, ePortfolios are increasingly being used in higher education institutions around the globe (Educause, 2013; Brown et al., 2012). Certainly in the Australian context, increasing attention is being paid to ePortfolios and their potential to enhance student learning (Coleman et al., 2015). While ePortfolios are used extensively in other disciplines, business has been slow to embrace their potential (Watty et al., 2015). The ePortfolio pedagogy is transformational in its promotion of integrative and holistic learning as well as being a powerful showcase tool of professionalism and employability. The study reported in this monograph shares the experience of, and lessons learned from, the implementation of ePortfolios in one general business management course and three accounting-related courses at three higher education institutions. The recommendations and principles proposed herein provide benchmarks for best practice and practical guidance for embedding ePortfolios into business curricula. While the focus is on business education, the resources, findings and recommendations may have application to other disciplines.
