This provocative title doesn’t mean to imply that music teachers are not professional musicians –rather, the e-portfolio is ideal for this cohort who, because of professional accreditation standards, can use it to build a folio of their work and thinking over the degree program. The teacher trainee is, therefore, often the focus of e-portfolio literature. This seminar presentation, instead, focuses attention on some of the roles the e-portfolio can play in B. Music programs which aim to produce professional musicians who will be active in many different careers in the community. In particular it looks at the role of an e-portfolio in three different areas of two Australian university Music programs – group performance, a final year, capstone, community and professional practice focused unit, and sound technology.

Diana Blom is Associate Professor in Music in the School of Humanities and Communication Arts, University of Western Sydney. Research interests focus around tertiary music education – interpretation, collaboration, assessment – and practice-led research drawn from composing and performing. A composer, she has scores published by Wirripang and Orpheus Music. Music Composition Toolbox, a composition textbook co-authored with Matthew Hindson and Damian Barbeler, is published by Science Press. She plays harpsichord and piano and is a member of ‘Three in a Boat’, a trio of voice, cello and piano, which performs contemporary classical repertoire.

Matthew Hitchcock is Head of Music Technology at Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. Current research projects include: sound production for music and linear and non-linear moving image contexts (film, animation, gaming, performance and installation); research on higher education, blended learning, learning communities, curriculum and learning environments; and ongoing recording and multimedia authoring projects within the IMERSD (Intermedia, Music Education & Research Design) recording studios. Matthew’s national leadership as a teacher in these areas has been recognised by the receipt of a National Carrick Citation for Outstanding Contributions to Student Learning and a Griffith Award for Excellence in Teaching.
