The background context for this paper is the development of the international MSc e-Learning Multimedia and Consultancy. The MSc is a collaborative programme between Hogeschool van Arnhem en Nĳmegen (HAN University) in the Netherlands and Sheffield Hallam University in the UK. The programme as a whole is framed within a virtual learning environment and involves a “blended approach” through international studies, local studies and independent study. A major focus of our attention in the early stages of development of this project has been on the promotion of formative peer assessment as a means of supporting learners in online learning communities. Subsequently as a result of student and tutor feedback, a framework for facilitating the process of formative self assessment has become the priority of our current development. This is based on the introduction of a personal and professional development planning process across the programme, in order to support this through a process of systematic reflection, evaluation and action planning. This has also become the focus of attention in terms of our ongoing action research and provides the focal point for this paper.
