GARCIA-CARPINTERO BLAS, Eva et al. The student as protagonists of their learning: the need to use the portfolio in nursing within the context of higher education. Index Enferm [online]. 2015, vol.24, n.1-2, pp.93-97. ISSN 1699-5988.

The reforms promoted by the Bologna process have led to changes in the forms of teaching and learning within the framework of European Higher Education. This brings extensive remodeling on the one hand a structural change and on the other, a re-conceptualization of the learning process supported by constructivist theories, through methodological strategies developed knowledge construction by students. The aim of this paper is to present a theoretical reflection on using the portfolio as a teaching resource for teaching and learning in this context. It has been observed that the involvement of students in identifying problems through the portfolio, provides teachers with a greater understanding of the learning processes of students as well as an opportunity for them to make a more reflective learning, independent and participatory practices eminently important in disciplines such as Nursing.
