Closure of the Centre for International ePortfolio Development (CIePD)
After eight years’ operation, The Centre for International ePortfolio Development (CIePD) closed in December 2013.
CIePD work at the University
CIePD forged new ways of working across the whole student lifecycle, introducing the latest technology to support learning, careers and progression. The Centre specialised in joining up areas of practice, government policy and University strategy; its work is now succesfully embedded in the University in several areas, including:
enhanced student placement learning, supported by streamlined administrative systems
the adoption of new course data information standards (XCRI-CAP) to refine university processes and make course information more accessible to students.
Other areas of work covered trust and personal data security; open data for the labour market; online university partnerships with business and the community; web service architectures and developing standards and interoperability for eportfolios (Leap2A).
International reputation for pioneering partnerships
Since 2005, CIePD’s achievements have made significant contributions to the University and the education sector, gaining national and international recognition for The University of Nottingham.
The Centre has had the privilege of collaborating with a wide range of partners in the University and with other external bodies such as Higher and Further Education institutions, government organisations, careers services, training providers and research centres.
The Centre would like to thank all colleagues and partners we have worked with for their valuable support.
CIePD staff have taken up new posts in the University.
