Woof! My name is Jack(Russell). I am a dog and a Wikiversity mascot. I am pretty new around Wikiversity. Perhaps we can learn together! Tail wag...


  • >what attributes do effective leaders have: I always joked around when talking about this: they probably could sell an Eskimo a fridge :-) (w:Leaders#Suggested qualities of leadership)
  • >universal ideal of beauty: When reading this I had to think of also questions like: why are all people attracted to babies. Could it be because they assume babies still have what they don't have anymore ? Their pureness, innocence, showing feelings openly ? About beauty: perhaps being attracted because of what they not possess or a recognition of oneself by "them" (like: when a beautiful person likes you too, you must also be beautiful?). But thank God taste is different and will change over time (since also society manipulates one a lot and inner values are not seen fast enough). Perhaps you are also interested besides w:Physical attractiveness in this in the future ?

Some feedback + links[edit]

Hi CVaughan, your e-portfolio is looking excellent in terms of regularity and depth of thinking/consideration around the various components of the unit. You're also making effective but judicious use of images, plus providing links to further information. If you check the history of your page, you should be able to see that I've made some edits to include use of "thumb" images (which allow inclusion of image captions), plus I've changed the wikipedia links to "internal style" and for external links changed some to hyperlink the text (as opposed to adding a footnote style number). But these are really very minor improvements (which you might nevertheless consider applying elsewhere) on your rich content. Later on I'll respond to some of your material more "substantively" (i.e., to the actual content). Sincerely, James -- Jtneill - Talk - c 03:43, 20 August 2008 (UTC)

A bit more feedback[edit]

Hi CVaughan. Wow, you've been busy and this e-portfolio continues to develop and enrichen, demonstrating ongoing depth of reading and thinking. My sense is that the exercise is "working for you", in that what you're presenting seems to be a natural flow from your engagement with various ideas, etc. So, this is really just give you a bit of assurance that you're very much (from my point of view) fulfilling the expectations I had envisaged for the e-portfolio experiment. Please let me know if I can do anything - e.g., if you would specific responses to anything in particular. -- Jtneill - Talk - c 13:00, 30 September 2008 (UTC)

Image formatting - gallery[edit]

FYI, one other option for presenting images is "gallery" e.g., it can do this:

oh, I should also mention that gallery can also include captions, e.g., like this:

Thanks James, I was wondering if there was a way to put borders around multiple pictures.

E-portfolio Feedback for CVaughan[edit]

Hi CVaughan,

Thanks for participating in the social psychology unit. I have read your e-portfolio and have provided some feedback below. The marks will put be posted on WebCT 24 or 25 November. I will email the discussion list when they are available. Feel free to let me know if you have any comments, concerns, questions. I also welcome your feedback here.


Clearly, there has been full and continuous involvement in all aspects of the unit (187 edits!). (HD)


The development of this e-portfolio has been a pleasure to watch. It reveals an intelligent, careful, passionate reading and engagement with components, as well as revealing keen insight, independent thinking, and effective use of images. Perhaps links and references could have been used more. Two posts on the discussion list - good to see that at least you joined and could use it. (HD)


Overall, congratulations, this has been an exemplar effort in that it's clear that the learning exercise worked for you in facilitating and aiding your motivation, interest, experience, and knowledge of social psychology. Thanks for the additional reflections on the unit at the end - it really helps to get a honest, detailed, insightful reflection of what the unit was like for you. There was much more that could have been commented upon in your work - hopefully you can further pursue some of your ideas about social psych in the future Smiley.svg!


Sincerely, James Neill - talk - email
