e-Portfolio- Inquiry Based Learning- EDPB 600

My name is Mary O’Neill and I am delighted to be working with you this semester with the ePortfolio component of EDPB 600.

I have assembled resources for ePortfolio in D2L. Look for EDPB 600 under Fall 2016. The course is now active.

We will be continuing the website build that you stared with Avi in EDPB 530 and 531 and will be adding 2 sections to your current site- A “Breaking Barriers” area where you will be documenting your Year 6 Inquiry-Based Learning experience along with your CAP project and an “My ePortfolio” component where you will be matching the 8 BC TRB Standards with evidence and reflections to demonstrate your learning throughout the Education program.

The expectation is that your ePortfolio will be completed in preparation for your ePortfolio presentations on Monday, December 12, 2016. Please mark this date in your calendar. Further details for the day will be forthcoming.

 Due to the “open” nature of Year 6 we will not be meeting for timetabled classes, rather, I look forward to sharing details of our continued ePortfolio development via a variety of formats to best suit your schedule and learning style.

Option 1- Meet face-to-face with Mary for guided instruction. Here are the available drop-in dates. Please choose just one date:

Thursday, Sept. 15, 10-12noon, Education Media Lab, 356/223 (we may move to a classroom space if there is a large group.)

Wednesday, Sept, 14, 10-12noon, Education Media Lab, 356/223 (we may move to a classroom space if there is a large group.)

Thursday, Sept. 15, 1-3pm, Education Media Lab, 356/223 (we may move to a classroom space if there is a large group.)

Option 2- Learn Online. I will be recording the first of the f-2-f sessions on Wednesday. Sept 14 and the instructional video will be available immediately following the session. It will take you through the ePortfolio build step-by-step so you can complete the project at your own pace. The url for the video link will be shared via email as of Sept 15 and will be available via D2L.

Option 3- Book a Small Group Instructional Session with Mary. Form a small group with your colleagues (6-10 students) and book a time with Mary for guided instruction.

Option 4- Go Rogue. If you are confident with weebly, please visit the sample site here http://eportfoliosrock.weebly.com/ and simply replicate the pages and content to link from your current website.

I will be connecting with you again through the term, especially regarding the selection of evidence and reflective statements to match with the TRB Standards. For now however, we will concentrate on the site build.

I look forward to working with you and wish you all the best for a productive and rewarding semester.

Cheers,

Mary
