    Capture, Integrate, Reflect and Connect Learning with ePortfolios (CIRCle 2018)

    Dodson Room (302) Irving K. Barber Learning Centre, 9:30 am

    This event explores the role of e-portfolios in higher education and professional practices. We will inquire into how e-portfolios might be used to create a bridge between academic learning and professional identity and how educators can cultivate an e-portfolio culture in disciplines where this does not exist. Sessions consist of presentations by faculty and students from all disciplines, and employers, on topics including reflective and collaborative processes, digital literacy and online ethics, distinguishing between personal and professional identities.
