Greetings from the Center for Teaching & Learning.

At last week's Dept & Program Chairs meeting I described the Learning ePortfolio initiative and announced that we now have a template ready for everyone to consider. AugieFolio has been created for students to document and manage their learning experiences. We are hoping that Instructors of LSFY and the first-year Honors programs will help with the initiative by having their students store drafts of their writing in their portfolio and reflect on their growth from term to term. There are other "signposts" in a student's career when we believe a portfolio could be of value, including

It is also designed to easily incorporate smaller class portfolios that you may choose to use in your courses. If it is to succeed, and serve our students well, it will definitely need to be a group effort; if the students are to see value, they will need to see that faculty value it.

I order to keep everyone informed of progress on the initiative (and, hopefully, to minimize "unintended consequences") I am keeping track of important steps in the process at

http://augiefolios.blogspot.com

I hope you can find time to take a look at the portfolio and the blog. If you have any, I welcome your comments and questions.

Have a productive week nine.
