Abstract

Aim: To investigate the extent to which trainees utilised log entries in an E-portfolio (particularly those involving reflection) to engage with the portfolio. Summary of work: Each of seven possible categories of log entry (four of which required reflection) were anonymously analysed by retrieving these from the trainees’ shared area on the E-portfolio web site. Summary of results: Of 82 ST1 trainees, 16 had logged no shared entries at all. Recording organised teaching was the commonest event logged (n=308: median 4.5 per trainee), followed by reflections on a clinical event (295: median 4), reflection on a learning event (211: median 3), reflections on the trainees own teaching (108: median 2), audit activity (99: median 1.5), learning during an attachment (70: median 1) and writing a research paper (31: median 0). The most common time of year for log entries to occur was in November to January, the least common being May to July at the end of the trainees posting. Conclusion: Some trainees make frequent use of the opportunity to record and share reflective log entries whilst others appear not to engage with this aspect of the portfolio at all. The quality of reflective log entries and reasons for non-engagement should be investigated further.
