Three Approaches to Cultivating a Purposeful and Professional Eportfolio for Developing Lifelong Learners
My colleague, Piry Herrera, and I will be giving a talk on eportfolios on February 4, 2017 at the CO17 open, online conference (check your local time here). If you follow me on Twitter (@bnleez), the talk will be simulcast via Periscope as well. Here is a summary of the talk:
This talk reveals how instructors guide learners in creating purposeful and professional eportfolios that are formative, summative, and reflective. Attendees will see examples of both learner and instructor eportfolios and will learn how data collection and sharing can be used to tailor school-wide adaptation of eportfolios that align with the curriculum. Although much of the discussion will pertain to a formal educational context (i.e., schools), virtually all of the concepts will equally apply to trainers and coaches in informal, educational contexts as well.
How are you currently using eportfolios with students? How are you using an eporfolio currently to promote your own personal learning network? What are some obstacles that you face? What are some successes that you have had?
