August 28, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM - 5:00 PM
Location: ePortfolio Studio, RBD Library

One of the distinguishing features of ePortfolios is the reflective writing that provides context for artifacts and contributes to a coherent story and professional identity. Reflective writing is a window into how students understand concepts, make connections between experiences, apply knowledge to new situations, and consider implications for the future. Unfortunately, reflective writing doesn’t demonstrate these higher order thinking skills unless teachers prompt such thinking, provide opportunities for practice, and offer feedback that promotes development and deepens learning. Join us in this workshop to learn more about the different kinds of reflection, consider ways to incorporate reflection into existing course assignments and activities, and design ways to support students as they develop the higher order thinking that is expected in successful integrative, outward-facing ePortfolios. Participants can expect to leave the workshop with an action plan for integrating reflection into their own courses and strategies for offering feedback to promote critical thinking through reflection.
