First Day: Advancing Student Learning with ePortfolios
Jun 5 – Jun 6 all-day

Start of online workshop Advancing Student Learning with ePortfolios

Monday, June 5 to Friday, June 23, 2017

The portfolio process is particularly well-suited to supporting experiential learning, because it challenges students to document, examine, and discern connections between their actions in daily life, at work, and at school.  For students, ePortfolios support reflection, integrated learning, identity development, perspective on growth over time, and showcasing of accomplishment.  At the course and program level, ePortfolios can also be useful for the assessment and demonstration of student learning outcomes.  In this three-week online workshop intensive, which includes live online sessions, you will have an opportunity to plan and receive feedback on your ideas for integrating portfolio work into your students’ learning.
