What are WriteBites Chats?
WriteBites Chats are monthly discussions over lunch that focus around a single theme throughout the semester. During each session, we will explore what scholarship has to say about the topic and who’s talking about these issues. Participants then engage in conversation with colleagues from across the university, focusing on how to apply that scholarship or borrow strategies from different disciplines to address specific teaching situations.
What is the Theme?
Integrating ePortfolios: Best Practices and Next Steps
Whether you are new to ePortfolios or have already integrated them into your curriculum and are looking to take the next step, this series offers an in-depth, semester-long discussion among colleagues to help support your success. Topics will include best practices for ePortfolio integration and implementation, promoting deep reflection, establishing a code of best practices for ethical literacy, and framing research questions related to ePortfolios. Over the course of the semester, we will take a deep dive into these topics, reviewing scholarship and sharing ideas and strategies you can apply to your own teaching.
When and Where Does it Happen?
Thursdays: January 17, February 7, March 7, and April 4 from 12:30 – 1:45 p.m. in the ePortfolio Studio, RBD Library
