As part of a new ACS webinar series on teaching with technology in the language instruction classroom, Anna Lohaus of Rollins College share her experience with e-portfolios. She described how she has used them to help students compile a dynamic and attractive portfolio of written and oral work that can serve not only as a record of achievement, but a useful item to share with potential employers. Anna also showed us how e-portfolios adapt easily to the assessment process, allowing instructors to enter criteria into an easy-to-use rubric, create random samples of student work, and easily generate statistical analyses of student performance. Best of all, she shared the digital sandbox she and her colleagues at Rollins have created for faculty to experiment with this and other new technologies that will be discussed in the series, as well as a sample of student portfolios.
