Feedback form is now closed.
University of the Fraser Valley recently implemented an ePortfolio program requirement into the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of General Studies degrees. This curriculum change is being implemented through courses designed to guide students through the process of portfolio development, reflection and assessment. To support this initiative UFV faculty required professional development around ePortfolio and how to successfully integrate this high impact practice into their teaching practice. This professional development included a Folio-Thinking Workshop which addressed concepts around artifacts, reflection, identity and audience. The Folio-Thinking Workshop has been adapted by the presenters to be delivered in the classroom as an engaging introduction to ePortfolio through a collaborative exercise that addresses the structure of ePortfolio and associated theory. This successful classroom activity can be used in any setting where ePortfolio is used as an assessment tool or modified to support the implementation of any high impact practice in the classroom. In the proposed workshop, participants will take part in a collaborative brainstorming activity that identifies ePortfolio artifacts, ways to reflect on those artifacts, and how personal identity can be incorporated into the final portfolio. The learning is captured in a collaborative folio-thinking artifact wall.
