DRCchat on Air #2 – Chatting about ePortfolios


This morning, Jenae Cohn and had a great conversation with a group of instructors who use ePortfolios in different settings.  We were joined by Kate Birdsall, Assistant Professor in the Department of Writing, Rhetoric, & American Cultures at Michigan State University, Daniel Von Holten, Instructor specializing in professional and workplace writing at Kansas State University, and Karen Forgette, WRIT100 Core Instructor at ePortfolio Committee member at The University of Mississippi. Highlights of the interview include advice on how to gain student buy-in and how to use ePortfolios to encourage reflection throughout the course. Click below to watch the broadcast:
