Day 1:  Why portfolios? What do they look like? What should be included in a portfolio? What should you ask of your students? Why and how to include self-reflection?

Day 2:  How to create pages and portfolios. How to share with colleagues, publics, and for assessment. How to create templates and workbooks to create guided portfolios. How to organize materials effectively. How to build rubrics for assessment. Advanced settings and design ideas will be discussed.

Day 3:  How to set up a workspace to share assignments with groups of students (or colleagues). How to add graders to a workspace and provide feedback to students. How to organize feedback and assignments. Advanced features like peer review and outsider assessors will be discussed.

If you are interested in attending a single day of training, please register for the entire series and send an email to emueller@duke.edu for more information.
