ePortfolios, Tech & Writing
“ePortfolios, as a space for synthesis, with their multimodal composing abilities, with their portability, allow students to engage in reflective dialogue over time, meaning making across courses, curriculum, and experiences. Who students are now, in a given moment, is not who they will always be. Thus, engaging students in a habit and practice that they can apply long after they leave us suggests that ePortfolio is a pedagogy of integration, an evolving gestalt with space and time for growth, change, and meaning making.”

I regularly present and write about ePortfolio, teaching with technology, writing, and contemporary pedagogy. I have done workshops on ePortfolio, basic writing, writing & technology, assessment, and technology at colleges and universities such as:
College of St. Elizabeth, Dixie State University, Dutchess County Community College, Fairfield University, Fresno City College, Guttman Community College, John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Long Island University, Manhattanville College, Muhlenberg College, Nebraska Wesleyan University, Old Dominion University, Otterbein College, Philadelphia University, San Mateo Community College, Sweet Briar College, University of New Haven, Wagner College, William Paterson University, and Worcester Polytechnic Institute.
