Jean Darcy, Queensborough Community College
Mercedes Del Rosario and student mentors, LaGuardia Community College.
Our speakers discussed how ePortfolios are used at their campuses to stimulate student engagement in specific courses and beyond. Drawing on Dewey’s essay “Art as Experience”, Jean Darcy discussed ways students are using wikis to engage in multichannel communication, employing words, sounds, and images to exchange unique perspectives on personal and shared experience. Student mentors from LaGuardia detailed the myriad forms of technological know-how and professional development they have gained from their participation in peer education in the use of e-portfolio technology.
