Documenting Student Success through ePortfolios: A Geosciences Perspective
ePortfolio is an electronic presentation of a student’s learning journey—in a course, a field of study, or an entire academic career. The Department of Geosciences has developed an ePortfolio template that allows for assessment of student competence, lets student build an electronic record of their work for sharing, helps students to understand that the department’s learning objectives are common across the curriculum, and helps students evaluate their own progress. The presenters will discuss their experiences using ePortfolios for student learning in the MT Engage Geosciences Major Pathway and program assessment of end-of-program outcomes.

If you're looking for some just-in-time training or want to dig a little deeper into a specific topic of interest, MTSU subscribes to both Teaching Professor ("reflects the changing needs of today's college faculty and the students they teach") and Academic Leader ("reflects the evolving needs of academic deans, department chairs and heads, program directors, and others with leadership responsibilities") online publications. If attempting to access either publication off-campus, you'll be asked to enter your MTSU credentials.
If you have an idea for a potential future workshop, please feel free to send your suggestions to Dr. Lando Carter.
