Student Engagement ≈ Student Success Value learning outside the classroom Track, measure & authenticate Leadership Community service Athletics Special interests Specialized skills and knowledge Evidence-based support toward further goals: Academic scholarships, awards, bursaries transfer to senior college community college to university graduate school Employment WBL/WIL, internships placements, permanent jobs
  18. 18. Three Pillars of the CCR http://www.collegequarterly.ca/2013-vol16-num01-winter/elias-drea.html Build a database of eligible elements volunteer activities events, awards non-formal learning (approved by Senate) Provided & validated by campus organizations Selected & tracked by students Connect experience to learning Linked to competencies, outcomes Self-reflection prompts checklists: “achievement statements” Produce the (paper) record Database report Institutional branding Security features
  19. 19. Co-Curricular Records Good for Campus Organizations... • Communications • Pages, galleries, newsfeeds, news letters, forums, social media Community of microsites for digital footprint Membership Member management Self-service Events Management, calendar consolidation, room bookings, etc. E-commerce Budgeting tools Integration with other systems Academic Work placement Career, etc. Technologie choices CollegiateLink, Orbis, OrgSync, Data 180 (Check I’m Here)
  20. 20. Co-Curricular Records Good for Students? • Summative, static paper report • “Laundry list”: • linear, siloed, inflexible • A 20C solution in a 21C world Little/no reflection, evidence, integration Few tools or opportunities, especially after upload Campus portal by-product Mostly time-based records of attendance Only “approved” (campus) activities No academic service/experiential learning or research No off-campus employment or community service ...non-accredited learning dressed up as a credential (with some variation across platforms & implementations)

  24. 24. “Paper Silos” Issues with certification today freedesignfile.com/92259 Transparency issues  “Dumb” paper often needs other documents, e.g. syllabus  Proxy only – not the “whole story”  Easy to forge Physical issues  Difficult to share, easy to lose Recognition issues  Lack of granularity  Lack of context  no links to supporting evidence  Experiential learning not valued  Lack of alignment, transfer, articulation (“stackability”)

  26. 26. What is an ePortfolio? One Definition Collections of digitally represented artifacts that: •document practice •include reflection •integrate experience •map to goals and/or standards •promote deep learning and knowledge transfer Tracy Penny Light, Thompson Rivers University (CAPLA 2013)
  27. 27. ePortfolio = your Personal Space For formal, non-formal and informal learning http://www.jiscinfonet.ac.uk/infokits/e-portfolios
  28. 28. What is ePortfolio? Process vs. Product http://electronicportfolios.org/balance/Balancing.jpg
  29. 29. Key Message: ePortfolios can be FOR and OF Learning FOR Learning OF Learning focused on process focused on product supports learning demonstrates learning private workshop public shop window a learning environment a showcase of learning achievements learning activities learning outcomes formative assessment summative assessment lower stakes higher stakes
  30. 30. >75% 5 key learning outcomes: critical thinking, complex problem-solving, written and oral communication and applied knowledge in real-world settings “It Takes More than a Major” 2013 survey of 318 employers bit.ly/AAEEBL13_AACU Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U) 93% Candidate’s demonstrated capacity to think critically, communicate clearly, and solve complex problems is more important than their undergraduate major >80% An electronic portfolio would be useful to them in ensuring that job applicants have the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their company or organization
  31. 31. The “e” factor Advantages and opportunities • Information Management – Collecting, archiving, making different versions • Measureability – Frameworks, rubrics, summative tracking • Interoperability – Communication with other ICT systems via APIs, open standards • Sharing – “One to many”, digital copies, links to specific pages • Multimedia – Video, audio, digital images, online presentations…and scanned docs • Internet skills – Online research: documents, networks, Internet literacy • Collaboration – Easy to add comments, edit, mentor, coach • Personal Learning Environment – Integrated learning environment, professional network, digital identity
  32. 32. ePortfolio Technology Solutions • Institution Controlled – Proprietary: • D2L, PebblePad, Chalk&Wire, Digication, Portfolium, etc. – Open Source: • Mahara, Sakai • Learner Controlled – Proprietary (Web 2.0): • Google Docs, Evernote, Wix, Weebly, etc. – Open Source: • WordPress, Drupal, Joomla, Jekyll, etc. – Special Case: “Domain of One’s Own”
  33. 33. Critical mass in the US 52% US undergraduates use ePortfolio Campus Computing 2013 (n=451)
  34. 34. Key elements • Links individual’s skills/accomplishments to skills frameworks • A record of formal AND experiential learning • Claims backed by digital evidence • Learner ownership • More than a showcase
  35. 35. Why ePortfolios? Learners and institutions • K-12 – Evidence of learning, sharing with family • Higher Education – Incoming: • (Admissions... not so much) • Formal Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) for academic credit • Formative/Advising: “Why am I here?”; “Where can I transfer?” – In Process: • Evidence of “Deep Learning” in programs – Outgoing: • Graduate Learning Outcomes, employability • Career – Professions: Certification, CPD – Transitions: immigration, career change, etc.

  37. 37. ePortfolio Process (RPL) From exploring to assessing • Describe life & work experiences • Identify learning from life/work experiences • Relate learning to career/education goals • Map the learning to a course/program or occupational standard/job/career – KSAs: Knowledge, Skills & Abilities • Compile & curate evidence/documentation to prove learning and ability to perform – Portfolio excerpts: “Targeted Evidence Packages”

  47. 47. Advisor ePortfolio - Examples at IUPUI (Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis) • Enable documentation of accomplishments and contributions of advisors to students, institution, community & profession • Define, align advisor performance to institutional and professional frameworks • Encourage professional reflection & goal setting nacada.ksu.edu
  48. 48. Advisor ePortfolio at IUPUI Recommended content structure • Personal Information Resume, Description of Career, Advising Philosophy • Department Work Normal Advising, Walk-Ins, Special Cases, Work with Other Departments, Best Professional Practices/Accomplishments • Professional Development/Service Professional Organizations, Professional Service, Professional Networks, Research and Publications, Professional Literature, Continuing Education • University/Community Service • Accomplishments and Challenges • Professional Goals and Objectives nacada.ksu.edu
  49. 49. Benefits of ePortfolios • Employer acceptance • 2015 • AACU survey aacu.org 2015 EVIDENCE OF SOFT SKILLS IS KEY e.g. “effective communication, applied skills, evidence-based reasoning, and ethical decision-making” Designed for learning and development More supportive, flexible than Web 2.0 tools; good for RPL Personal control and privacy Not at the mercy of social media business models Integrated public/private use Archive, reflective chamber, showcase, recognition tool
  50. 50. ePortfolios: Not a Magic Bullet Questions that need asking • Are ePortfolios really student-centred? • Is an ePortfolio just another way of getting a grade? • Is your ePortfolio strategy really about accreditation? • If ePortfolios are used for assessing learning, do you assess for prior learning? • If it is a tool for transition: – What happens when a student brings an ePortfolio to your institution, say from high school? – Will your students want to keep their ePortfolios after they graduate? Can they? • Do you have one?

  65. 65. “If you add up all the time undergraduate students spend in their four years at college, only about 8 percent of their time is on the curricular, and 92 percent is on everything else. ....the light really went on when we saw how well the service learning students picked up on this opportunity to earn badges and showcase them in their eportfolios, at the same time truly highlighting, as never before, their co-curricular experiences.” G.
