ePortfolio Workshop at Stanford, 8/10-8/12: Early Bird discounts extended

You (or someone above you) has decided to implement ePortfolios in your class, department, program, institution. Where do you begin? What resources about ePortfolios already exist? What tool should you use? Who else is doing this? Will this really benefit my students, faculty, my campus?

If you're thinking about the above questions (and more), please consider joining us at Stanford University this August 10-12, 2009 for USING ePORTFOLIOS FOR TEACHING, LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT at

In this three day institute, participants will have the opportunity to actively explore how ePortfolios and Folio Thinking can support integrative (deep) learning and demonstrate learning outcomes. Through interactive discussions and activities, participants will be engaged with a range of ePortfolio case studies that highlight best practices in supporting integrative learning, methods for evaluating ePortfolio work, and strategies for successful ePortfolio adoption and implementation.

A unique outcome of this workshop will be a personal ePortfolio built by the individual/team that can subsequently be shared with colleagues and students to visibly document and model the value of what was learned. The program will also include time for project planning as well as individual consulting with each of the instructors.
