Two days ago Jenine, Kari and I showed Rodney Frey and Jane Baillargeon the ePortfolio demo we built in Weebly using the university's five learning outcomes in the navigation. We were hoping they would see the utility of an outcomes-driven ePortfolio for assessment purposes. They seemed pretty intrigued and Rodney decided that he would pilot it in his ISEM course, Sacred Journey into Indigenous Communities - this semester. If all goes well he plans to pilot ePortfolios in all the ISEM courses in this fall. So hooray! I started working on a demo for his course yesterday and will probably get to visit the class and talk to students about the why and how of ePortfolios.
In all of my ePortfolio work I talk about using the blog as an engine for collecting evidence and tagging that evidence so that during the selection process it is easy to filter. But I never follow my own advice. So as of today (1/15/13) I am going to begin dumping things in here and see if I can train myself to get in the habit of posting something at least once a week.
