E-portfolios provide an ongoing, assessable learning activity which is meant to help students to record, explore, synthesise, and share their learning during the Social psychology unit.
Challenge #1: Create an account
The first challenge is to create an electronic e-portfolio! By the end of Week 2, you should have created an e-portolio, emailed the details to the unit convener, and recorded some reflections on the first two weeks of the unit.
Once you have created your account, email the convener with your Wikiversity user name, your real name (if different), and your student ID.
The convener will then "drop by" to check your page, help you to set it up, and post a welcome message to your talk page.
Then, you are 'underway' ...
Challenge #2: Start building content
How you organise and what you put into your e-porfolio is entirely up to you, however guidelines and suggestions will be given along the way, plus you will be able to get ideas from reading other students' e-portfolios → see list of participants.
Remember, we're just talking about text here (e.g., see content is king). Fancy stuff (e.g., layout and images) can come later, if you wish. What we're talking about is you and your learning in this unit -- your engagement, ideas, responses, questions, opinions, observations, comments, confusions, insights, conversations, and anything else that genuinely reflects your active participation in the unit and its learning activities. And the e-portfolio is simply about providing tangible evidence of your engagement. By sharing our experiences, we can also collaborate with others (e.g., read and comment about others' reactions and learning experiences).
It might be helpful to think of the e-porfolio as a professional development exercise in creating a "CV" for the unit. Why not add it your CV/resume and show potential employers? It might help you to get a job!
Marking will reflect two criteria:
This marking rubric offers generic qualitative descriptions of likely reports types for each grade:
The style requirements are very open, e.g.,
How can I get technical help?
How long should my e-porfolio be?
What wiki skills do I need?
The basic required skills are:
How can I convert a word document?
