ePortfolio as Curriculum: Models and Practices for Developing Students’ ePortfolio Literacy (FBG)
Faculty Book Group | Fall 2021 | Meeting 1
* NOTE: The book group has reached maximum capacity. Please email Sheila Otto if you wish to be placed on the waiting list. *
You are invited to join a group of colleagues who will be reading and discussing the book ePortfolio as Curriculum: Models and Practices for Developing Students’ ePortfolio Literacy, edited by Kathleen Blake Yancey.
The publisher’s website describes the book as follows: “At a moment when the ePortfolio has been recognized as a high impact practice – as a unique site for hosting student integrative learning and as a powerful genre for assessment – this book provides faculty, staff, and administrators with a set of frameworks and models useful for guiding students in designing and creating ePortfolios that clearly communicate their purpose and effectively use the affordances of the medium.”
This book group will be facilitated by Eric Detweiler, and will meet four times via Zoom:
- September 28, October 5, October 19, October 26
- 10-11 AM
- Zoom meetings
Each participant will be provided with a copy of the book in advance of the first meeting.
Participation is limited; if you are interested in joining the group, please register as soon as possible.

If you're unable to attend a scheduled workshop, we typically record them and make them available via our YouTube channel.
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. Sheila Otto.
