Designing for a Digital Age: Diving into E-Portfolios

September 11, 2017, 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Open to: All instructors and academic support staff

Description:

How can and should we use e-portfolios, bCourses tools, and other digital platforms and apps in our courses? What tools and literacies are needed for effective teaching and learning across the curriculum? How do students feel about these kinds of assignments and how do we best support them?

Learn about some portfolio tools and features that integrate with bCourses.  Also, hear about research from instructors who have been looking at the pros and cons of different e-portfolio platforms.

You are invited to share your experiences with digital publishing/portfolio assignments you've created, as well as what your experience has been. We'll discuss any questions, challenges, or suggestions you have. This is an open, informal dialogue. Everyone is welcome!

Registration is not required, but please RSVP so we know how many people to expect. Refreshments will be served.

Registration is unavailable. Registration closed on September 10, 2017 - 5:00pm.

Series description

Join us for our ongoing conversation series about critical thinking and teaching in a digital age. Our theme for Fall 2018 is Reimagining Writing. How are concepts like style, authorship, authenticity, and authority evolving as remixing, collaboration, and even artificial intelligence tools become more commonplace in content creation? How can we rethink audience, privilege, knowledge, and research practices in ways that are both rigorous and generative?

All programs will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.  in the Academic Innovation Studio.

All instructors and academic staff are welcome; no prior experience necessary. Free snacks and adult beverages included!

Hosted by the Berkeley College Writing Programs and the Library.
