      Portfolio as Process/ Workspace
      Organization: Chronological – eDOL (Electronic Documentation of Learning – U. of Calgary) Documenting growth over time for both internal and external audiences
      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 ePortfolios
    • 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.

    • 31. Making ePortfolios Stick
      Will your faculty want to use the e-portfolio process?
      Will ePortfoliotools be available to students after graduation?
      Gartner Group “Hype Cycle for Education” has ePortfolios "Sliding Into the Trough"
    • 32.

      Elements of True (Intrinsic) Motivation
    • 35. Why Digital Stories in ePortfolios?
      Reflection is the “heart and soul” of portfolios
      Digital Stories can humanize any model of ePortfolio
      Digital Stories add VOICE
    • 36. Do Your e-Portfolios have VOICE?
      Individual Identity
      Meaning Making
      New Literacy
      “When words are infused by the human voice, they come alive.”
      - Maya Angelou

    • 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

    • 54. Sample Plan
    • 55. Collect, Select, Reflect Matrix
    • 56. Progress Portfolio(can morph into Showcase)
      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
