Lehman College – Professional Development and Cross Discipline Collaboration

Since several faculty use portfolio pedagogy in courses or programs but were not using the digital tools, the ePortfolio Leadership Team wanted to provide opportunities to collaborate and talk about topics we all have in common. There are features of ePortfolios that translate to other types of assignments and coursework. Thus, we focused on professional development topics that would benefit faculty who were not specifically engaged in ePortfolio work. For example, we decided to conduct a PD series on improving rubrics and prompts. These were areas that pertained to all faculty not just those using ePortfolio and therefore we could be more inclusive. Faculty using ePortfolios applied the learning and discussions to our ePortfolio capstone courses, and the other faculty applied the learning to their assignments. Additionally, those faculty were exposed to our ePortfolio projects.
