Enhancing Student Learning through the Use of Reflective e-Portfolios
This program will provide ‘hands-on’ practice on the use of e-portfolios in higher education to improve student learning, teaching and assessment practices. Participants will be presented with the history of portfolios and e-portfolios and their uses in the context of higher education. They will discuss the benefits and challenges associated with the use of e-portfolios, examine the process of e-portfolio development, consider different tools for digital portfolios and investigate various strategies to effectively engage and motivate students. Participants will be involved in actual development of a digital portfolio.
The program is designed for all faculty members and staff wishing to integrate the use of ePortfolios as well as those working in Teaching and Learning and Educational Technology Centers and Units.
