Your ePortfolio will not only show your learning over the quarter through the artifacts of your engagement in assignments, drafting, discussions, critical reading, planning, groupwork, etc., it will also serve as a home for your assessment of all these activities. These moments of reflection of your learning across the time span of the quarter will help you to step away and take a larger view of them, connect the experiences to one another, and consider their collective meaning. This type of self-reflection asks you to become an active participant in your own learning–you are making meaning from somewhat isolated and possibly disjointed learning experiences. The desired outcomes for ePortfolio pedagogy are to connect you to how you work as a learner so that you might reconsider long-held ideas about yourself and the world, be aware of your own and others intellectual growth, and visualize and plan for potential learning obstacles in the future.
The reflective elements of your ePortfolio work this quarter will center around the successes and obstacles of engaging with the course material, understanding how you fit into the give and take of group building and action planning, and how you see yourself as a person interacting within your own life and the greater world at this moment in the time of pandemic and protest against status quo violence against people of color and embedded white supremacy.
