AUCA pilot project: Documenting, demonstrating and assessing student learning with “Portfolium”
Community Idea Exchange
17 January 2020
Are you ready to go digital? The proposed session outlines the AUCA ePortfolio concept and highlights the key considerations of introducing ePortfolio into the university’s educational processes.
Digital transformation requires the implementation of new initiatives and new approaches to work, not just new technology. As we have entered a challenging era, we must adapt and search for versatile ways, to support and demonstrate student growth and development. The AUCA Center for Teaching, Learning & Technology is permanently investing in innovation and experimentation, and this year has piloted a project on the integration of Portfolium, a student-centered platform, into courses of different academic disciplines. The CEI format is a unique opportunity for us to provide compelling evidence, offer fresh insights, and exchange best practices with AMICAL peers.
This presentation aims to deliver specific and practical information on the following topics:
- what ePortfolio means for classroom practice;
- to explore new teaching, learning and assessment approaches;
- to show how ePortfolio can be implemented and provide recommendations;
- to illustrate the obstacles that initiators may experience along the way.
Participants will introduce to real examples of courses that utilize Portfolium instrument both for learning and core competencies tracking, as well as obtain data to support future decision-making regarding the adoption of ePortfolio technology.
