Tech landscape 13

  1. 1. Goals and Objectives • Gain a better understanding of how ePortfolios can be used to promote learning, assessment, and professional development • Consider ways for better implementation within curricula • Learn of the technologies and ePortfolio systems/platforms available • Develop a plan for implementing portfolios with curricula and select the technology that best meets this plan
  2. 2. Session Outline • Define ePortfolios o Contexts o Purposes • Implementation o Guided Process o Pedagogy o Technology • Points to Ponder • Q&A
  3. 3. ePortfolio: A Definition ePortfolios can "enable learners to manage the complexity and variability of learning designs and opportunities in formal and informal settings in order to gather evidence of their resultant deep learning.” Trent Batson, http://www.aaeebl.org/tbb?mode=PostView&b mi=1075857
  4. 4. Portfolios in Academic Contexts •Individual learning portfolios •Course-based learning portfolios •Programmatic assessment portfolios •External accreditation portfolios Assess Share Select Reflect Collect
  5. 5. Putting It All Together Learning AssessmentProfessional Development Academic Accreditation Learning Portfolios Departmental Development VTeP
  6. 6. Implementation: Questions to Ask • Where do you fit within the diagram? • What are the primary activities that you would like to represent in an ePortfolio? • What are the required needs that you must have met by ePortfolio technologies? • What are the desired goals that you would like to see in ePortfolio technologies? • What is the "next step" with your ePortfolio use?
  7. 7. Implementation: 8 Central Issues (Chen & Penny-Light, 2010) 1. Defining learning outcomes 2. Understanding your learners 3. Identifying stakeholders 4. Designing learning activities 5. Including multiple forms of evidence 6. Using rubrics to evaluate ePortfolios 7. Anticipating external uses of evidence 8. Evaluating the impact of ePortfolios
  8. 8. Implementation: Conditions for Success (Knight, Hakel, & Gromko, 2008) • eP-based curriculum • Feedback • Include engagement and personalization • Examples • Time for development • Faculty promote value of eP • Technical assistance
  9. 9. Implementation: Other questions • How long will students need access to the portfolio? • Who will be viewing the portfolio? • Who will own the contents of the portfolio (institution, faculty, students)?
  10. 10. First Things First! Pedagogy • Technology is constantly changing • Pedagogy is key o Focus on understanding the clear purpose behind the ePortfolio o Make it pedagogically meaningful  If this happens, the rest will fall into place
  11. 11. Identifying Technologies: Questions to Ask • Hosting (local and/or vendor)? • Outcomes assessment/tracking? • Presentation showcase? • Directed/guiding portfolios? • Social networking? • LMS and/or SIS integration? • Pricing? • Security?
  12. 12. Identifying Technologies: 3 Examples http://tinyurl.com/eptechlandscape

  15. 15. Points to Ponder • Where are you in terms of your eP implementation? • What are the current institutional efforts within your organization? How might you leverage them? • What are your curricular goals? • Which technologies match your activities and outcomes?
