Learning Inside Out with Portfolios in Sakai






Date: Wednesday, March 29
Time: 2:00 to 3:15 p.m.
Location: ND Room, 202 LaFortune Student Center
Presenter(s): G. Alex Ambrose, Associate Program Director, and Alison Lanski, ePortfolio Specialist of the Kaneb Center


Normally students submit papers and projects from the outside in a gated learning management system (Sakai) for a lone instructor to grade. What if there was a way to push the products of student learning from the inside out-- to publish it to peers and external audiences? This workshop will provide a guided tour of a digital learning environment to show how ePortfolios can be integrated with Sakai to make learning and skills visible outside the classroom and increase authenticity by identifying targeted external audiences. Participants will sketch a design for their digital learning environment and be able to take advantage of campus support resources.

Learning Goals:

After successfully completing this workshop you will be able to:

  • Apply best practices in customizing your digital learning environment.
  • Become familiar with ePortfolio samples across the disciplines.
