This lightning round will spark ideas around e-portfolios, offering five different views spanning strategy and implementation, curricular redesign and assessment, and off-the-shelf systems and reenvisioned tools. For many, e-portfolios have been clouds on the horizon. Come learn rapidly about e-portfolios from those who have been at the edge of the brewing storm.

Building Blog-Based E-Portfolios: Multiple Units and Dynamic Platforms

Eastern CT SU's Liberal Education E-Portfolios During Trying Times
David L. Stoloff, Eastern Connecticut State University
How do first-year colloquia and e-portfolios facilitate student development in a time of trying budgets, work-weary faculty members, and Web 2.0 tools like Facebook?

Implementing Electronic Portfolios by Beginning with Student Assessment

The value of e-portfolios depends on how, when, and why students use them. This session will describe how we redesigned our assessment/evaluation plan to focus on student learning.

Searching for an E-Portfolio Solution Collaboratively
Lorna Wong, University of Wisconsin System Administration
We used the D2L e-portfolio system in a pilot project to find a cost-effective, pedagogically sound, easy-to-use solution that fits the diverse needs of our system's institutions.
