Thanks again to +Tracey Richardson for hanging out with us earlier this week!  Watch the recorded version below to learn about the selection process Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University went though to select an eportfolio vendor.  Tracey describes how one program's enthusiasm for eportfolios has influenced a wide adoption at ERAU.

- Use of eportfolios in both academic and co-curricular areas

Don’t miss our live hangout tomorrow: Tuesday, August 6th at 12:30pm CT!

With the fall semester quickly approaching, we thought, “What better way to kick off the new school year than a live hangout?”  Tomorrow, we will spend some time with Gil Eckert, Assessment Project Coordinator at Monmouth University.  We’ll be discussing Monmouth’s use of eportfolios and its impact on data collection.  Monmouth University has been a wonderful educational partner of ours for more than five years, and we look forward to featuring Gil as our next live hangout!

If you missed it live, check out our hangout with +Emily Springfield  from the University of Michigan.

Emily discusses the use of eportfolio to manage projects in the UMICH School of Dentistry.  She also speaks about the power of reflection in student learning, and what their program is doing to encourage and facilitate meaningful reflection.

Did you miss our hangout with Nancy Schneider?  Don't worry, we have the recording for you! 

Learn how Lindenwood University has used eportfolios to streamline standards-based assessment for their teacher certification programs.  I particularly enjoyed hearing Nancy talk about using eportfolios to help students connect their performance in the classroom to the competencies they are required to address in their reflective writings.

Thank you again to +Ken Macur for his time today.  Ken provided great insight into a campus wide implementation of eportfolios.  Furthermore, his discussion regarding academic freedom and program assessment should not be missed!

A big thanks to Gil Eckert from Monmouth University for sharing with us today!  It was exciting to hear about how they are using eportfolios for data collection/accreditation, but also as a tool for students to make the transition from college student to working professional.

If you missed our live hangout, take a few minutes to watch the video below. Feel free to post questions for  +Gil Eckert in this discussion thread if you want to learn more about #monmouthuniversity  's eportfolio practices.
