Mon, 09 May 2011 23:38:00 +0000I have played with discussion rubrics in the past and found it very tedious to count posts and comments then nit pick on mechanics, then check citations and name drops, then assign, grade, and track a weekly participation point grade. To me, I have felt that discussion boards should be less formal and more organic and natural and by overly evaluating them, instructors could crush natural collaboration and communication. Lately, I have been using the Community of Inquiry framework for students to holistically self evaluate and peer evaluate each other on their overall and total participation throughout the course. Recently, I have found a participation portfolio that seems interesting. For a link to the presentation pdf on Educause see http://net.educause.edu/ir/library/pdf/EDU07320D.pdf

Thu, 21 Apr 2011 11:20:00 +0000Title:Notre Dame E-Portfolio Initiative: A Blended Advising Approach for Student Engagement & SuccessAuthor:G. Alex Ambrose, Academic Advisor, University of Notre Dame, for more information visit his ePortfolio at www.gAlexAmbrose.comEvent:April 22, 2011, Spring Symposium at Indiana University South Bend Join the Backchannel:Go to http://tinyurl.com/backchat9Program Description:The purpose of the First Year of Studies E-Portfolio Initiative (FYS-EPI) is to explore the use of e-portfolios in higher education to improve student learning and success. More specifically, we are examining the role academic advisors can play in using e-portfolios as a blended advising strategy to engage students across a-curricular, co-curricular, and extra-curricular learning experiences. The FYS-EPI has 3 main objectives: 1) Projects & Pilots: to design and test an open courseware, integrated e-portfolio system; 2) University Outreach & Collaboration: to develop a portfolio “culture” across student and academic affairs through student and faculty buy-in, workshops and professional development; and 3) Research: to systematically measure the qualities, programs, practices, conditions, and impact of e-portfolios in higher education on student engagement and report findings.Outcomes:Program participants will:•Be introduced to an innovative blended advising approach•Assess a collaborative approach to fusing academic and student affairs•Analyze the role e-portfolios can play to support student, success, learning, and engagement•Examine a First Year program•Debate, critique, and judge the role technology can play towards student successNote: Slides will be posted soon.Let's continue the conversation afterwards by commenting below. Feel free to contact the author if you are interested in collaborating. [...]

Wed, 01 Sep 2010 20:43:00 +0000I just got back from a Google Apps in Education Summit at their headquarters and one of things I was most impressed with their corporate culture was their "unconference" formats. They are meant to turn the traditional top-down information overload content delivery of normal presentations to a bottom-up, upside down, and side-to-side dynamic that sparks maximum interaction, innovation, and ideas among participants.

Wed, 28 Jul 2010 13:45:00 +0000This was a Paper/Slideshow Presentation for the: 2010 Midwest Moodle Moot ConferenceView and listen to the slidecast (PowerPoint + audio narration podcast) below. The Best way to view a slidecast: Hit the center play button to listen to the slide narration or use the side arrows to skip through slide by slide. You can hit the full screen button on the right side or watch slidecast in one window. The talk is 30 minutes long, then there is 18 mins of Q&A afterwards. Feel free to contact me if your interested in collaborating or communicating. Enjoy.Abstract::This (paper/slideshow presentation) talk will not be a "how to"; instead, it offers a "why to." The presentation aims to answer the following questions. How can educators best meet the learning needs of the millennial generation of students? How has learning changed in the 21st century? What are the essential skills needed to survive and thrive in today's and tomorrow's global digital workplace? Have educators been effectively integrating technology into the classroom? After a decade into the 21st century, it is time our learning theory catch up with technology. Constructivism learning theory is transforming into "Connectivism." Bloom's taxonomy is evolving into "Bloom's digital taxonomy." Gardner's multiple intelligences theory can now be seen through a "multimedia multiple intelligences" lens. By upgrading our learning theories to the 21st century we can connect the pedagogy to the technology and get the horse back in front of the cart. This presentation argues that Googlios (Google Sites meets E-Portfolios) could provide the 21st-century educator with an outcomes and project based approach in order to successfully infuse technology into the classroom and transform education.
