Description of Project
Understanding the Experience of Student-Faculty Partnerships for Portfolio Design and the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning
This study aims to understand the experiences of graduate students and faculty participating in the design of a culminating assignment, an ePortfolio, for a master’s program in higher education through a course designed under the premise of a “student-faculty partnership” for teaching and learning.

One New Thing
In Fall 2017, Dr. Sponsler was awarded a OneNewThing Grant through the Office of Teaching and Learning.
This project was be to create a Canvas community for the MA in Higher Education Community as they prepare their ePortfolios as part of their new and redesigned capstone requirements.
The Canvas community will serve four central purposes 1) create community around the project through open discussions and guided reflections; 2) serve as a repository of information related to the portfolio requirements; 3) house modules and tutorials to help students master DU Portfolio and 4) serve as a faculty assessment tool to understand how students are learning through the portfolio development process.
The following video and image share a bit about the Canvas community.
