Individualized Course Support
The OTL is able to individually support a select number of instructors with the incorporation of reflective ePortfolio practices through a combination of: one-on-one consultations, tailored resources, and customized in-class workshops.
Do you have a specific structure in mind that you'd like students to use when developing the pages of their ePortfolios? Set up a consultation through firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss the possibility of creating a custom template that can be downloaded for use within an individual ePortfolio.
