More than half of US colleges and universities have adopted ePortfolios to enhance teaching and learning, foster student personal and career development, and support assessment of student learning At IUPUI, ePortfolio use has more than doubled in the last four years. In a forthcoming book, George Kuh will recognize ePortfolios as an 11th High-Impact Practice (HIP)--the first new HIP to be added since he published the original list of 10 in 2008.
The 2016 IUPUI ePortfolio Symposium will focus on new experience with the benefits of ePortfolios locally and nationally. Keynote speaker Dr. Daniel Terry, Director of ePortfolio at Texas Christian University, will discuss "Naming the Why of ePortfolio Work: Implicating Students in Their Own Learning." Dr. Catherine Buyarski, Associate Dean of University College, will describe the model of student development underlying IUPUI's Electronic Personal Development Plan (EPDP) as increasing numbers of students create EPDPs in the First-Year Seminar and beyond. Other IUPUI faculty presenters will report on new graduate and undergraduate ePortfolio projects in schools across the campus, and several award-winning students will discuss their experiences in creating ePortfolios.
Plan now to join IUPUI colleagues to consider how ePortfolios reinforce IUPUI's strategic directions and might benefit your own programs and students.
Lunch will be provided, but you must register to participate. The registration deadline is Friday, September 23.
