    1. This session is designed specifically for faculty who are teaching with ePortfolio. Whether it is a First Year Seminar, a Capstone course, or any other discipline-based course, faculty will learn the basics about using the new ePortfolio interface, reviewing students’ ePortfolios, using the CMS portion of the Digication platform, reviewing student assessment deposits, and any other aspect the faculty may request. Faculty who participate in this session will be provided with web resources to further develop their use of ePortfolio in the classroom. Additional one-on-one support is available for faculty who may request it.
      Recommended for: All faculty. Especially those new to integrating the ePortfolio pedagogy

    2. This session will be hands-on and will offer faculty an overview of using the ePortfolio for a course. Participants will create a “course ePortfolio,” post and organize materials for students to access. The session will also cover how to share this course ePortfolio with students and how to update it from semester to semester. Among the specifics, the session will cover how to upload multiple file formats, media, images, and how to enable the conversation feature for students to comment and interact with one another.
      Recommended for: All faculty

    3. This session will cover a range of features in the CMS portion of the Digication system. These will include the discussion board, announcements, attendance, and the assessment process. The session will also cover the basics about populating content on their course and how faculty can take full advantage of the system to maximize its use for course management purposes. This session can be tailored to different levels of familiarity with the system.
      Recommended for: All faculty especially those interested in using discussions boards, grading features, attendance, among other features

    4. This session will offer faculty an overview of the assessment depositing protocols that students follow. Once the competency and assignments are set up on the course, this session will offer faculty an understanding of how students deposit their work, the steps they have to follow, and how faculty can review the work submitted. Additionally, faculty will learn how they can download a report of all submissions. This session will not cover how to set up the competency and assignment; this must be completed separately prior to the workshop.
      Recommended for: All faculty. Especially those new to the assessment depositing process

    5. Although the creation of ePortfolios in the ‘classic’ interface will be discontinued as of September 1, 2018, this session will provide support to existing ePortfolio in the ‘classic’ interface. It is recommended that faculty communicate their specific needs so that the workshop can meet these goals. The session will be tailored to the needs of faculty.
      Recommended for: All faculty working in the ‘classic’ ePortfolio interface
