ePortfolios are an effective way for students to engage with and reflect upon the process and product of their learning. Specifically, ePortfolios can be useful for creating and distributing educational philosophy statements and digital dossiers that illustrate and showcase examples of interest. In this hands-on workshop, participants will learn how they may use the tools within Google Apps for educational e-portfolios and digital dossiers. Participants will be invited to use their own Google accounts in this hands-on workshop, so that they may build skills with Google Apps by working with the features and functions in this facilitated session. Session facilitators will share lessons learned regarding different ePorfolio technologies during a recent transition from blogging platforms (such as Wordpress, Mahara, etc.) to an institutional version of Google Apps. Workshop learning outcomes include using Google Drive (including Google Docs) and Google Sites for pedagogically supported portfolio design, development and delivery.

The audience for this session includes educators, educational developers, instructional designers, educational technologists and anyone interested in learning more about how to use ePortfolios and Google Apps for Education.

This workshop will be highly interactive. Participants are encouraged to build skills through hands-on use of Google Apps.
