This E-Portfolio Toolkit is based on experience of developing the “Year Abroad E-Portfolio”, undertaken by the School of Languages at Leeds Metropolitan University. We use an E-Portfolio to assess our students on their period abroad because we think it encourages them to fully engage with culture(s) and language of the target country and to reflect on the resulting cultural and linguistic development. As part of our project, we have also developed a set of learning activities and materials,
