This session will give you the resources you need to help your students integrate their learning and then articulate the significance of their experiences by using e-portfolios. The facilitators will share insights gained while developing and teaching a section of UNIV401 designed to assist students with reflection and the development of their e-portfolios. You'll have the opportunity to engage in a discussion of questions, strategies and activities that have been effective, those that show promise, and those to avoid.
