  32. 32. Leslie Lieman Instructional Technology Coordinator Division of Education Lehman College December 18, 2009 As a tag-along group who peeked in the back door, We saw people making connections and wanted more. Showcase, evidence, learning, reflection,this is a text this is a test And the electronic “e” of portfolio collection. 1/7 Lehman College
  33. 33. As a tag-along group who peeked in the back door, We saw people making connections and wanted more. Showcase, evidence, learning, reflection, And the electronic “e” of portfolio collection. 2/7 Lehman College
  34. 34. With wikis and workshops and setting goals, And research on platforms, exploring ePortfolio roles. Evaluating practice, value-added and finding our voice, We negotiated a pilot project with Digication as our choice. 3/7 Lehman College
  35. 35. From the student perspective it offered ownership: “me” and “my” Demonstrating learning, self-assessment – a no-brainer to try. It offered an integrative approach from a programmatic view, But buy-in from faculty, we only wooed one, not even two. 4/7 Lehman College
  36. 36. A graduate school leadership program took the lead, And Dr. DeSimone and Cohort One began planting the seed. Of how to reflect, assess and navigate the rigorous maze, Of both meeting standards and showcasing work… … in alternative ways. 5/7 Lehman College
  37. 37. IRB approval, research, assessment is the name of our game, We are presenting results locally and nationally… … although not seeking fame. Recognizing as life-long learners we have a long way to go, But we are proud of our efforts and each student’s ePortfolio! 6/7 Lehman College
  38. 38. Three cohorts in the Education are now cycling through, While Dr. Whittaker is working with a new undergraduate crew. And although it feels as if we’re moving at a tortoise pace, Good work is happening, as we will someday showcase! We thank LaGuardia for their guidance from beginning to end, And we also thank all our new Making Connection friends! We will continue our ePortfolio dreams and set goals high, As we continue to reach for the pie in the sky . - Leslie Lieman, 2009 7/7 Lehman College
