Morning

MA-1 Shane Sutherland of Pebble Learning .Promoting the Personal: Evolution of an ePortfolio. Typically eportfolio systems focus on the collection and presentation of evidence of learning, primarily in the context of course based curricula, using frameworks or templates defined by educational institutions or professional bodies.Where, in this process, does the personal learning that eportfolios are widely associated with, take place?This workshop explores the evolution of an eportfolio system into a personal learning space – a system of tools and functions where the process of learning is elevated above the simple aggregation and dissemination of artefacts.

Elsewhere it is argued that "behind any product, or presentation, lie rich and complex processes of planning, synthesizing, sharing, discussing, reflecting, giving, receiving and responding to feedback.” This paper asserts that those rich and complex processes are not innate skills for learners and cannot be assumed to be developed by osmosis simply through the act of portfolio building.

Through the exploration of four examples of practice this workshop will demonstrate some of the tools and scaffolded processes that are necessary to transform an eportfolio system into a personal space for learning. Further, it will situate the concept of the personal learning space (PLS) as ‘the space in the middle’ residing between the wholly institutional space called the LMS and the typically idiosyncratic space often referred to as the PLE.

MA-2 Candyce Reynolds and Judith Patton, Portland State University.Making Learning Visible: A Guide to Learning through Integrative ePortfolios. Eportfolios can support improved learning, but it is not enough to just provide the software.If we want students to use and to connect their learning within classes and across programs, we need to offer ways to put the technology and their work together in a meaningful manner through systematic teaching practices for creating ePortfolios. This workshop will take participants through a process of classroom practices that integrates the ePortfolio into the curriculum and that aligns with the AACU Values Rubric for Integrative Learning.Participants will also be invited to share their experiences with ePortfolios from their own institutions.

MA-3 Linda Amerigo, Molloy College; Gigi Devanney, Vina Associates.The Direct Approach to Developing an Institutional Assessment Plan Using ePortfolios. During this 3-hour interactive session, we will guide participants through a process to answer questions including: Why an assessment plan is needed? What should be assessed? How to balance student learning outcomes and institutional evaluation, and How to take an effective and accurate inventory of current practices. We will look at student eportfolios as a primary data collection tool, for accreditation and/or institutional research purposes. We will also explore the use of developmental, program and showcase portfolios.

MA-4 Helen Barrett, Consultant, Eileen Brennan, Mercy College.Digital Stories of Deep Learning: Add Voice and Higher Order Thinking to E-Portfolios with Digital Storytelling.A digital story is a digital video clip, told in the author's own voice, illustrated mostly with still images, with an optional music track added for emotional effect. Learner identity is inherent in digital stories, and "voice" is an expression of that innate identity, and hence a product of good communication skills. Hence we will focus on how it is that we can best encourage students to explore different styles, and what are the most effective ways that we can model good practice for them, as they learn the skills they need in order to communicate compelling personal narratives. Through the framework of Bloom’s Taxonomy Blooms Digitally (Churches, 2008), we will explore Bloom’s concepts of Knowing, Synthesizing, and Creating.

Voice is an expression of innate identity, and hence a product of good communication skills. Hence we would like to focus on how it is that we can best encourage students to explore different styles, and what are the most effective ways that we can model good practice for them, as they learn the skills they need in order to communicate compelling personal narratives.

In this workshop, we will address two issues in developing digital stories in ePortfolios: Why? and How? or the Multiples Purposes for adding digital stories to ePortfolios and the emerging tools that can be used to develop digital stories, including mobile devices. Bring a laptop or iOS devices and explore apps that are incredibly easy to use. See how voice recorders, digital cameras, Flip cameras, and mobile devices have been used to develop digital stories.

Afternoon

MP-1 Gina Rae Foster, Lehman College, CUNY. Learning is Mashable: Mastering Theory and Practice in an ePortfolio Learning Community.This workshop will ask participants to practice using community discussions, blogs, and rich media mashups to integrate learning strategies in acquiring and implementing conceptual knowledge (pedagogical and social-psychological models will be examined in this context). Participants will be asked to consider assignment design principles that include peer and instructor feedback as well as self-assessment activities. Variations in technical literacies and academic preparation will also be discussed and demonstrated. Participants will engage in small group and partner activities and will be asked to present their activity designs to the large group for feedback at the end of the session.

MP-2 Teggin Summers, Jennifer Sparrow, Virginia Tech.Virginia Tech.ExPo: Virginia Tech’s Experiences with Electronic Portfolios for Courses, Programs, and Across the University.This 3-hour pre-conference workshop proposes to share Virginia Tech’s ePortfolio experiences.Specific examples of portfolios for learning, assessment, and professional development will be discussed.We will also share the infrastructure needed to implement ePortfolios throughout our institution, including the university’s center for emerging technologies, Innovation Space. The workshop will include a participatory design process to facilitate development and share experiences.We provide resource materials and participants should leave with greater ability to implement university-wide ePortfolios.

MP-3 Nancy Pawlyshyn, Dr. Braddlee, Mercy College.Implementation to Sustainability of ePortfolio Practice:Transforming Institutional Culture -- What it takes!Implementing ePortfolio practice on your campus can be a daunting proposition as it involves transforming ways of teaching, learning and assessing student learning, and requires significant institutional support and change.Mercy College, New York’s faculty-initiated MePort team will share a specific, replicable campus model to implement, integrate and build ePortfolio practice across an institution. The model situates faculty as initiators and learners in a powerful reflective practice that has sparked a significant shift in the culture of the institution.The workshop will be facilitated by members of Mercy’s MePort Team led by Nancy Pawlyshyn, Chief Assessment Officer of Academic Affairs and Braddlee, Dean of Libraries, Academic Technology and Online Learning.

All Day

MF-1 WordPress and ePortfolios.

Morning: Part 1.Jayme Jacobson, University of Idaho.Students engage more fully with ePortfolios that belong to themselves rather than institutions.We have recently developed a unique method for creating ePortfolios that leverage the powerful tagging and category functions of Wordpress. The blog tool functions as a collection and filtering engine, routing evidence to related outcomes-based pages. These outcomes -- institutional, personal, program, and course – subsequently appear hierarchically nested within the site’s navigation. Students can select evidence for their target audience and write their reflective narratives in the top-level pages. The system allows for endless variation, personalization, and modification as the student moves through and beyond the institution.

Afternoon: Part 2. Cyri Jones, Capilano University & ZEN Portfolio Networks.The open-source WordPress has emerged as a leading blogging tool and content management system.A number of schools have found that it can also be a powerful platform for e-portfolios.This hands-on workshop will provide participants with a thorough overview of WordPress, and how it can be used for e-portfolios.As part of the workshop, participants will build their own WordPress-based e-portfolio.

Short Description
Portfolios have been growing as a trend in higher education for well over a decade, but while they are often touted as a transformational learning tool for students, very few institutions use the portfolios their students create to gather data about program or institutional effectiveness or success. In this session, a tried and true method for using portfolio for program or institutional assessment (that has been in use for over 15 years) will be presented in very specific detail. Not only will you learn, step by step, how to implement this practice on your campus, but you will participate in the process during the workshop so you can truly understand it, ask questions, and leave with everything you need to try it on your campus. Register now to learn, step by step, how you can capture priceless data, increase faculty development, and improve your program or institution by using this invaluable process that is often described as "magic".
