Here we go!
"This is it, don't get scared now". Fall 2015 begins tomorrow and most classes kick-off on Monday. Classes are ready to launch, assignments are prepped, instructors and students are grasping onto the last few days of summer, and the ePortfolio Team is ready to help students share their best work in a unique and creative way.
As for me, I'm thinking about what comes next. More immediately, it will be the first 'Part 1' creation of new WIX pages, but a lot of returning students will be 'Curating' their WIX page to complete Part 1 of the ePortfolio project. This is a great 'challenge' to have-- how do we support students evolving professional self while also noting the workload difference between someone with a page already set-up, and a student starting from scratch.
The ePortfolio Team continues to explore ways for students to curate their WIX pages, and hope that as other instructors adopt the project they will collaborate with us on this process. To get started, below are some resources we've compiled to share with other instructors.
I'm pretty excited to see what this semester brings, and what the students come up with as they design their WIX pages. If last year is any indication, I'll continue to be impressed! Until next time...
