PROGRAM-LEVEL PORTFOLIOS - GETTING STARTED
12:30 PM - 3:30 PM BR126 with Aurelea Mahood & Cheryl Schreader

As our graduates leave campus, they will increasingly be asked to adapt, change, transform and reinvent themselves. Embedding ePortfolios throughout the student experience , a high impact educational practice , allows students to practice and reflect upon how they represent themselves and their work to selected audiences.

In this workshop, we will:
  • Learn how to intentionally embed ePortfolios into program courses for a connected whole experience rather than a series of events
  • Discuss and explore examples of how ePortfolios assignments can build upon each other over time
  • Explore current examples from Capilano University and other institutions
  • Leave with practical tips of how to get started
