    Primary Purpose: Learning or Reflection
    Reflection: immediate focus on artifact or learning experience
    Portfolio as Product/ Showcase
    Organization: Thematic – Documenting achievement of Standards, Goals or Learning Outcomes for primarily external audiences
    Primary Purpose: Accountability or Employment
    Reflection: retrospective focus on Standards, Goals or Learning Outcomes (Themes)
  • 27. Google Sites ePortfolioshttp://sites.google.com/site/eportfolioapps/
  • 28. Process
    Purpose. Decide on the purpose for the portfolio. What are you trying to show with this portfolio?
    Collection/Classification.What artifacts will you include in your portfolio? How will you classify these entries?
    Reflection. Blog entries provide an opportunity for reflection "in the present tense" or "reflection in action."
    Connection/Interaction/Dialogue/Feedback. This stage provides an opportunity for interaction and feedback on the work posted in the portfolio.
    Summative Reflection/Selection/Evaluation. Students would write a reflection that looks back over the course (or program) and provides a meta-analysis of the learning experience as represented in the reflections stored in the blog/journal entries.
    Presentation/Publishing. The portfolio developer decides what parts of the portfolio are to be made public.
    REPEAT for each learning activity or artifact.

  • 43. Engaged in Education @ Kapiolani CC
    customized professional development for faculty (instructors, counselors, coordinators)
    uses electronic portfolios to help faculty become more engaged in their own professional development goals
    ultimate goal of the Engaged in Education project is to facilitate more engaged faculty toward engaged and successful students
  • 44. Glossary
    CELTT = Center for Excellence in Learning, Teaching & Technology
    EE = Engaged in Education
    EEP = Engaged in Education Participant
    EEC = Engaged in Education Coordinator
    CCSSE = Community College Survey of Student Engagement
    FaCES = Faculty Confidence & Engagement Survey

  • 50. How it works
    Participants undergo intake interview with empathetic listener, buddy, CELTTy, dept. chair
    Interview notes are converted (by EE team) into plan (1-5 year time frame)
    EEC & EEP fine tune plan
    EEP implements plan : doing, documenting, reflecting
    EEC monitors, coaches, connects, problem-solves
    EEP populates an ePortfolio, with artifacts and reflections
    EEP “graduates” with an EE designation
  • 51. Extrinsic Incentives
    EE designation in Schedule of Courses
    EE door plaque
    Peer recognition in various forms
    (e)Portfolio facilitates promotion process
    Other incentives yet to be determined
  • 52. Intrinsic Motivation
    What motivates individual educators to do the ePortfolio?
    Purpose: commitment to student learning a/o other aspects of one’s primary duties
    Autonomy: participants choose if they want to do it; and shape the product
    Mastery: participants feel a sense of accomplishment in achieving their goals

    With each artifact added, EEP is asked to reflect on the activity that produced the artifact
    So What?
    Now What?
    Reflections can be in the form of blogs, so members of the group can interact
    Encourage development of e-dentity
  • 57. Sample
  • 58. SampleReflection
    4T's: My Freshman Year: oct. 10, 2008
    What: I was asked to fill in as facilitator for Friday's 4T's session … Our conversation was interesting, though, because we focused on some of the defining differences between generations, the younger generation (millenials) being those who were the primary targets of this book. … The differences seem to center around communication styles, attention span and work ethic, and the role of technology.
    So What: the crux of the issue seems to be, given these differences, to what degree do we use this information to adapt our teaching … Len suggested we assume the attitude that the technology WILL change. What can we do to teach the skills and attitudes that will rise above and stand independent of whatever technology is or will be. Very thought provoking!
    Now What: … for my own teaching, I will continue to think about Len's comment, about technology-independent skills. This is especially interesting as I start this Leeward CC online course on online courses :) I just did my first reading tonight, and will post my first forum exercise as soon as I get some clarification from the teacher on what he's asking.
  • 59. Sample Reflection
    What? Teaching Philosophy Workshop, May 8, 2009, at KapCC CELTT, presenters, Sally and Susan.
    I’ve attached the powerpoint that the presenters emailed us after the workshop… They showed us some examples, and gave us some prompt questions to get us thinking about aspects of our primary duties. ….
    So What? The most salient point … The wordle exercise was fun, but I don’t know if it’s helpful to generating my philosophy. It’s maybe better as a revision tool, seeing what ideas are most frequent. I’ve attached my wordle from the current dossier’s teaching philosophy section. (see attached) It’s not surprising to me that STUDENTS is big and bold. What is interesting is that REFLECTION and PROCESS were a lot smaller than I thought they’d be…
    Now What? … I need to build more metacognition into the Ling 102 class. I had it there before, but I removed it to make room for the Interlanguage Phonology Project … I need to bring back the Final Reflection, but … make sure that the students are aware of and reflecting on the outcomes. There’s still time to work this into my Spring syllabus.
  • 60. Matching Artifact
  • 61. Another Reflection - no artifact
    What: I haven't been blogging because I've been guilty of the "but it's all in my head" syndrome. …The all-day workshop was designed for women … of academia…
    The most transformative session for me came first; a presentation by Linda Johnsrud… She gave specific tips for women, such as to weigh carefully flattering offers to move out of academia and into administration unless you are a full professor… She talked about timing your moves from and between these institutions, and the need sometimes to leave your institution or even the state in order to advance.
    So what: The "so what" for me was that while I was originally quite enthusiastic about this event, as the date crept up, I kept looking for excuses not to go … Networking - a phrase many like me avoid because it sounds so manipulative - is valuable because you get to see other facets of the academic experience
    Now what: The "now what" takeaway for me from this is to keep on going. I told Linda Johnsrud that some colleagues of mine (Kathy and Wendy) would love to take her out for lunch and get to talk to her in a quieter setting. She seemed enthusiastic…
  • 62. Learning vs. Showcase Portfolio
    Learning - Formative
    Selection and Reflection process is toward evolution of skills and professional identity
    Showcase- Summative
    Selection and Reflection is toward demonstrating fulfillment of certain outcomes

  • 66. Initial Research Questions
    (How) do ePortfolios provide evidence that EEPs are improving learning & teaching?
    (How) do ePortfolios facilitate the professional development process?
    (How) do ePortfolios address the needs of instructors, counselors & coordinators?
  • 67. Methodologies
    To measure impact of EE program on Faculty: FaCES Survey in pretest and posttests
    To measure impact of EE program on students (or equiv): Mini-CCSSE survey with instructor-specific questions that address their EE goals (parallel questionnaire for non-instructional EEPs, minus the CCSSE questions)
    To measure impact of ePortfolio on faculty: formative questionnaire with interpretive analysis of reflection question and cataloging of eportfolio usage
    To measure impact of ePortfolio dissemination: focus groups with EE instructors using eportfolios in their classroom
  • 68. Now What?
    Work with rSmart to finalize version 2.6 of portfolios -> matrix, blog tool, showcase skins
    Train EEPs on e-Portfolio
    Migrate EE e-Portfolios to new version when it’s ready
    Administer FACES pretest
    Additional EE cohort in Spring ‘10
    Look at how EE e-Portfolio meshes with Faculty Self-Assessment
