This work in progress report presents on-going research of the challenge and evaluation faced during the implementation of pilot studies of an ePDP exercise in the School of Arts, Media and Education at the University of Bolton in the UK. The inclusion of personal development planning is a University requirement for all programmes and was traditionally embedded through either text based and/or visual journal approaches used in the SAME (The visual journal has and continues to be an important aspect of personal development for Art & Design students at the UoB). With the emergence of new technologies that could support the traditional PDP the school explored a more flexible approach using an open source VLE (Moodle) to implement the existing PDP framework. The experience provided the school with data to inform full implementation of ePDP through Moodle and to further explore the optimum process, infrastructure and research that was needed to support future developments across the SAME more effectively. The culture of ePDP is slowly changing due to the greater involvement of students and staff with technology and the challenge is to ensure that the PDP concept is fully and holistically understood and embedded within the SAME and on the agreed VLE platform the university is progressing to. The research report will inform on the preliminary results of the pilot and first year of implementation.
