My colleagues and I were excited to present our eportfolio design to the participants at the Re-Bundling Higher Education: High Impact ePortfolio Practice Conference at Guttman Community College.  The full title for our presentation was “ePortfolio as Book-Ends in a Transformative General Education Program.”   Check out the slides here and below are some photos.  One of my faculty partners, Alicia Trottman, brought two of her Critical Inquiry students to showcase their ‘Learning Folios.’ This folio style documents learning from the beginning to the end of an academic term.  One of its powers comes when students reflect on the work and see how far they’ve come. See the students’ comments below for more power insights.  An ePortfolio is a high-impact practice, according to AAC&U, but it must be ‘done well.’  Alicia and her students knocked it out of the park!

Check out Laura’s folio and Andrew’s folio.

Here’s what Laura said, “I felt like I was writing for the newspaper and everyone knew who I was.”
