ePortfolio and Reflection Workshop

How does the ePortfolio relate to a USP course? Why are we using ePortfolios? What are good models of reflection? How do I develop good prompts for reflection? How does this fit with assessment? Slides and video recordings from an introductory professional development workshop.

Introduction

Offered by Carleen Vande Zande and R. John Robertson throughout Spring 2013 the "Enhancing Student Learning: Reflection and the ePortfolio Process" workshop is intended to support instructors in their course development process for the University Studies Program (USP). The workshop considers the conceptual issues around ePortfolios as a tool for learning, a program ePortfolio, the wider assessment of general education, and incorporating reflection into a course.

The workshop was offered at UW Oshkosh under the auspices of CETL, Learning Technologies, and the Provost's Office.
