E-Portfolios and the Problem of Learning in the "Post-Course" Era
Within a larger cultural context characterized by social networks and webs
of connection, colleges and universities must consider the idea that "courses"--as bounded, discrete entities--are no longer the center of undergraduate learning and engagement. Dr. Bass will argue that this current context challenges us to take seriously the shift in proportion between formal learning and informal learning, individual and group learning, and content knowledge and knowledge-making in practice. E-portfolios, when implemented effectively, can play a critical role in helping students--and campuses--shift to a more embodied way of looking at learning, where learning is participatory, emergent, and boundary-spanning.
