Social Media ePortfolios

Tuesday, February 14 | 12:30PM–1:30PM | Meeting Room 602
Session Type: ELI
ePortfolios give students the opportunity to organize and reflect on their work while making integrative connections between their varied curricular and extracurricular experiences. Despite our vision for their use, current ePortfolio systems still focus on one aspect of the process-collection, reflection, representation, or evaluation. This session will present and demonstrate an ePortfolio project currently under development at Georgetown University's Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship that attempts to bring those ePortfolio processes together in one tool, as well as expand on the possibilities of mobile access and social media for ePortfolios.

Learning Objectives:
*Understand the core concepts, goals, and challenges of implementing e-portfolios in higher education
*Understand the four conceptual components of a modern e-portfolio system-collection, reflection, representation, and evaluation-and how they connect across students' academic and personal experiences
*Learn how Georgetown's Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship is prototyping a robust e-portfolio platform through an interactive demonstration and understand the processes behind the research and development of e-portfolios
