Social Pedagogy Campus Practices

Successful ePortfolio implementations focus sustained energy and attention on developing ePortfolio pedagogy that enhances student learning. The work of C2L campuses reveals the ways in which campus ePortfolio leaders work with students and faculty, mobilize institutional resources, and adapt institutional structures to put Reflective, Integrative and Social pedagogies into practice. Social Pedagogy engages students in communication intensive tasks where the representation of knowledge for an authentic audience is central to the construction of knowledge. Social pedagogy transforms ePortfolio learning from a solitary experience to one in which students engage with a community of learners.
