USE OF E-PORTFOLIOS IN PHYSIOTHERAPY AT THE SPANISH UNIVERSITY FOR ADAPTATION TO EUROPEAN HIGHER EDUCATION AREA

The use of the e-portfolios is increasing in different subjects of university qualifications for adaptation to the standards proposed by the European space of higher education. However, it remains a very consolidated tool, although memories of portfolios and practices resources in its traditional format, are widely used. We believe that new technologies of information and communication available to students and professors different virtual platforms to work with virtual portfolios, however, are still scarce, studies in this area. Therefore the objective of this work is to describe the frequency of the use of the e-portfolios in physiotherapy in Spanish universities. The design of this research is a descriptive, transversal and observational study, having carried out a sampling non-probability convenience, configuring a sample of 51 centres where the degree in physiotherapy is offered. It´s a semi-structured interview that integrates the following variables: virtual portfolio use in physiotherapy, type subjects in which is used, support virtual employee and valuation of the e-portfolios (for the study of this variable a specific rubric has been developed). The main results are that 78% of the surveyed universities have brackets and virtual work platforms, being the most used moodle platform (32%) and the webct platform (29%). However, although many of subjects designs used by tasks on virtual platforms, only working with e-portfolios format in 18% of the subjects, being the subjects linked to the skills those who most use them within moodle or webct. However, criticism of these formats are many, especially those related to the linear presentation of the content through the tasks, the difficulties in peer, visibility problems and the deficit in the interaction. The subjects which proposes the implementation of an e-portfolios are the following: physiotherapy in sports (82%), physical therapy in community intervention and management (3%), intervention models in disability and dependency (5%), accomodation clinics (6%) and bibliographic search in Health Sciences (4%) In these subjects, we highlight the proposals of e-portfolios format personal blog made with Googlio and Blogspot, for viewing, interaction, design and usability in different subjects throughout the titration. As conclusions, we can say that although virtual teaching resources exist in the majority of the consulted centres, the virtual portfolios isn´t an educational innovation that is used frequently and regulated. The subjects of physiotherapy are which most use have to do with clinical practice, management and searching for information.
