Using Process Portfolios to Document Thinking and Learning
Thursday, October 7 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm EDT$45.00
This 1.5 hr. workshop is dedicated to making thinking “visible” by documenting what influences a student’s thought process and by keeping track of the changes that occur when additional information is acquired. Process portfolios can be used in any subject area where a student’s ideas are evolving: a piece of writing, an experiment, a model, a project, or the maturation and development of skills for a particular content area. One of the silver linings of 2020 is the shift to digital platforms that track changes easily using timestamps and previous versions of documents, slides, spreadsheets, and drawings. Digital portfolios of the thinking process that occurs between inception and the final product are easy to collect and can be used for discussion and self-evaluation during the reflection period of an assignment.
