What does learning at Pratt look like? ePortfolios provide Pratt students a multimodal platform through which they can archive, reflect upon, and curate their learning. Carefully designed ePortfolio assignments guide students to make meaningful connections between their prior learning, current thinking and future creative and professional possibilities. ePortfolios support a reflective pedagogy practice in the classroom or studio: they can be a powerful tool for identity explorations and an excellent support for diverse students. Building on the work of a pilot project, Pratt’s ePortfolio Project guides interested faculty to explore the teaching and learning possibilities of ePortfolios, share their ePortfolio pedagogy, design or improve student reflection assignments and share rubrics.
Experienced ePortfolio practitioners and total newbies are welcome to join the conversation at the upcoming Pratt Faculty ePortfolio Ambassadors Showcase, which will take place on October 1st at noon.
