English abstract

Paper presents theoretical issues related to e-portfolio as lifelong learning tool. E-portfolio supports ongoing learning/professional development, formative and summative assessment, reflective writing and collaborative, active and deep learning. It is powerful tool for professional development planning or career planning by fostering intrinsic motivation of a learner to maintain portfolio on an ongoing basis throughout formal classes, programs of non-formal learning or just in demonstrating professional or personal growth over time. Focus is on e-portfolio as tool for evidencing prior learning for further assessment or recognition. Different types of digital technology are in use, and diverse portfolio purpose and use are reflecting on assessment. Paper focuses on modeling a conceptual model of e-portfolio system as a tool for assessment and recognition of prior learning in continuing education of librarians in Croatia.
