Electronic Portfolio Workshop: Spring Quarter, 2010

The Committee on First Year Writing and the Digital WRD Working Group Present:
Electronic Portfolio Workshop: Spring Quarter, 2010

What to bring: teaching materials that you can use to begin your own digital teaching portfolio — a unit, or theme, or series of assignments. Bring the materials in MSWord, or whatever format you use, on a flash drive or email them to yourself.
Purpose: in the first half of the workshop, we’ll review three platforms for designing e-portfolios: iWeb, Acrobat Pro 9, and WordPress. In the second half, we will practice making  our own teaching portfolios as a way to explore the different platforms and to prepare.
