Social Blogging Platforms as E-Portfolios (Innovative Practice)

Wednesday, January 21 | 12:30PM–1:30PM | Grand Sierra Ballroom I
Session Type: Professional Development
The focus of this session is to discuss the blogging platform at Penn State as a vehicle for student e-portfolios. We will share the ways we have begun to take full advantage of the fundamental aspects of blogging and the richness of the blogging culture to engage Penn State students in professional discourse communities around frameworks and problems of practice associated with their chosen professions. In cases where this information might be used by programs for accreditation, reporting, and/or self-assessment purposes, we will share our vision for capturing student evidence at specified points across their programs.
