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.
In this workshop, we will learn about Team-Based Learning (TBL) by experiencing it, exploring the structural flaw in most traditional forms of group work and the four practical elements that make TBL so powerfully-effective.
In this workshop, we will discuss different structures for student feedback teams, their benefits for both students and faculty, and effective communication strategies.
This workshop intensive will help faculty members leverage these uncomfortable occasions and transform them into teachable moments for both students and themselves.
