Holly Tempo: 2008 TLC Technology Grant Report


Excerpt:

Project Implementation:

In late January 2008, my class of eight students attended a workshop presented by Heather Cleary on how to create e-portfolios. I spent many hours researching existing e-portfolios on the Otis website. I made suggestions to students about how they might want to structure their portfolios based on what I observed to be the more successful examples. Students were then instructed to create an e-portfolio, or update existing ones. By mid-February, everyone had a new or updated e-portfolio on O-Space. I also created an e-portfolio for myself for the first time.

Specific project activities included the following:

  • Attendance at workshops presented by Heather Cleary (two for me; one for students in class)
  • Researching e-portfolio offerings on O-Space and identifying best practices
  • Helping students troubleshoot e-portfolio creation/updates
  • Monitoring student e-portfolio activity
  • Creation of my own e-portfolio
  • Researching Fine Arts Department presence on e-portfolios
  • Sharing project with Fine Arts Department Assistant Chair, Christine Reynolds
  • Surveying student satisfaction with e-portfolios
  • Compiling survey data and writing report

To access the e-portfolios from my class, please click on the following links [NB: some e-portfolios may no longer be available]:
