This paper examines how e-Portfolios have been used in relation to three different models of Personal Development Planning (PDP). It begins with a brief description of the context of the study at the University of Kent. Then, using Clegg and Bradleyââ¬â¢s (2006) models of PDP, it identifies three case studies to review: Social Work (the professional model), Sports Studies (the employability model) and Physics (the academic model). The discussion centres on what has been learned from these case studies in relation to PDP practice and embedding of e-Portfolios. The paper will be of interest to academics and curriculum developers introducing e-Portfolios to support various models of PDP.
