This paper reports the results of a research project that examined the development of reflective abilities of pre-service teachers through a scaffolded ePortfolio-based learning environment. The environment was planned and reviewed using the eLearning Lifecycle to identify key design principles for the implementation of electronic learning environments. The environment incorporated the provision of prompts to the students that were based on research into how best to facilitate the development of reflection in pre-service teachers. Several key design principles emerged from the research, in particular towards the enhancement of reflective practices. These included the early implementation of ePortfolio platforms in the students’ degree programs; the integration of user-friendly discussion formats for the students to share and discuss their experiences; and a focus on the conventions and requirements of reflective writing.
