Creating community for the Muse Scholar cohort through ePortfolios
Dara Meyers-Kingsley (MUSE Scholars)
What did you accomplish over the summer?
During the summer I worked intensely with ICIT and ACERT staff to determine which platform to use and how to create and build the ePortfolio templates. Since the project has multiple users and goals, I ended up creating 3 templates: one for the freshman Muses, one for the Muse cohort (sophomores and juniors), and one for myself. Since this was my first time working with ePortfolios, I spent most of the summer reworking my fall syllabus for HUM 201 to accommodate the ePortfolio, creating new assignments and reflections.
How did your thinking about your project evolve?
I became an absolute believer in the possibility of this technology as a creative instrument and the use of reflection as a teaching tool.
