Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

Since I have spoken in person with a number of groups, you may already be aware of the Learning ePortfolio initiative that we have undertaken that will help students document and manage their learning. I order to keep everyone informed (and, hopefully, to minimize "unintended consequences") I am keeping track of progress on the initiative at

If it is to succeed, and serve our students well, it will definitely need to be a group effort. I hope you can find time to take a look; I welcome your comments and questions.

Have a productive week seven.
