In addition to her Thursday October 2nd keynote and discussion at 3:30 in the WLH (described in another post) on Friday October 3rd at 1:30 p.m. in the Faculty/Staff Lounge, Kathleen Yancey will host a discussion on e-portfolios and their uses. You do NOT have to have gone to the Thursday talk to participate.
The Social and Intellectual Practices Surrounding Electronic Portfolios:
A Collaborative Discussion
When people think about electronic portfolios, they often think first of technology, but what’s interesting and promising about portfolios isn’t the technology, but rather the social practices supporting and surrounding them. What’s also promising, and at least as important, are the intellectual practices that are unique to ePortfolios. In this discussion, we’ll focus on both social and intellectual practices, and about how to design portfolios that bring this shared promise to life.
