ePortfolios for Bryn Mawr Students: A Conversation about Enabling Reflection on Learning & Showcasing Competencies for Key Audiences

Friday, 12/9, 3:00-4:30, Carpenter B21

Part I: A lightning-round sequence of 5-minute presentations on exemplars and possibilities:
  • Heather Curl, Lecturer in the BiCo Education Program, will present some examples of Education students’ portfolios and talk about her work overall with portfolio practices.
  • Gina Siesing, CIO & Director of Libraries, will share information about Alison Cook-Sather and Jody Cohen’s work supporting students in their creation of portfolios as part of the Peace, Conflict, and Social Justice program.
  • Greg Davis, Associate Professor of Biology, will share the scaffolding he’s providing for STEM POSSE students for reflection and synthesis as they’re beginning to create their portfolios.
  • Jenny Spohrer (Manager of Educational Technology Services), Beth Seltzer (Senior Educational Technology Specialist), and Katie Krimmel (Associate Dean for LILAC) will share the BMC Digital Competencies and LILAC Leadership Competencies models that might be woven into student portfolios and associated scaffolding.
  • Alicia Peaker, Digital Scholarship Specialist, will show Domain of One’s Own, a service we’re moving toward adopting to enable students to create their own web-based domains with common tools that they can configure for their own purposes, including blogs, etc., to support both development of a digital presence for themselves and hands-on experience working with and evaluating digital tools.
Part II: robust Q&A and conversation!
All are welcome! Through discussion among faculty, students, and staff, we’ll figure out how we want to move forward on campus into some broader-scale ePortfolio practices with scaffolding and support. Please bring along any peers who might benefit from seeing the possibilities and joining the initiative!
