Kicking Off with Tracy Penny Light

A group of nearly 30 people gathered in the Capilano University Library this morning for a workshop with Tracy Penny Light (TRU) on Portfolios, Pedagogy, and Pathways.

The event was made possible through a grant awarded to the Folio Thinking CLC by the Faculty PD Committee in Spring 2016.

There was fantastic energy in the room and people left ready to explore “folio thinking” in their various home departments. It will be hard to follow Tracy’s advice that we “start small.”  In the coming months, we look forward to using this site to share our findings as a campus learning community and build on the theoretical underpinnings and experience-based recommendations shared by Tracy.
