    3. 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.

Additional one-on-one support is available for faculty who may request it.

    4. 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

    5. 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.

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

    6. This session will offer faculty an overview of the assessment depositing protocols that students follow.

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

    7. 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

    8. The goal for these sessions will be to provide faculty an overview of the new interface with a focus on the content to support advisement and an overview of the modularity of the system and the creation of assignments that reflect course learning objectives and that aid in the development of high stake assignments. These sessions are open to all faculty and particularly those teaching any of the First Year Seminar courses. To sign up, click here.
