In the first half of this session, Dr. Peiling Wang, Professor in the School of Information Sciences, will present a process-to-product model for designing ePortfolio as a course assignment or as a program capstone option.
An electronic portfolio (ePortfolio) is a valuable tool for learning and teaching. Working on an ePortfolio, learners reflect on learning experiences and select exemplary learning outcomes to showcase their integration of knowledge and mastery of skills. Instructors can adopt ePortfolio as a pedagogical tool in course design, programs can adopt ePortfolio as a capstone for evaluating learning outcomes, learners can use ePortfolio for lifelong learning, and graduates with an ePortfolio can increase their professional opportunities.
In the second half of this session, Dr. Kelley Eric, Goodner Professor, Associate Professor, and Co-Director of the Finance Finance PhD Program, will discuss how he flipped his classroom. After devoting more than a decade of his career to becoming a good lecturer, and succeeding by at least some measures, Dr. Kelley was frustrated. His students didn’t seem to learn at the level he desired, and he wondered if there was some other way to approach this “teaching” thing. In his search, he stumbled upon discussions of flipped classroom models and became curious. So he tried it. And he loved it. Student feedback was positive, and learning improved. In this session, Dr. Kelley discusses what a flipped classroom looks like for him, various things that worked (and others that failed), and how the structure he had in place facilitated a smooth transition into the online learning environment during the Covid pandemic.
