Thank you to everyone who joined us at last week’s workshop with Tracy Penny Light (TRU). If you are inspired to continue exploring all things folio, the two opportunities outlined below may be of interest so read on . . .

Join the FOLIO THINKING Campus Learning Community

As mentioned last week, the Folio Thinking CLC meets on the second Friday of each month from 2:30-4pm in the Writing Centre, 4th floor of Fir. In the Fall term, we will meeting as follows:
  • September 9, 2016
  • October 14, 2016
  • November 18, 2016 (1 week later due to Remembrance Day)
  • December 9, 2016
We will collectively formalize our focus for the Fall term at the September meeting based on areas of interest emerging people’s preliminary readings and Tracy’s workshop. There are no formal requirements/commitments associated with participating in Folio Thinking CLC other than a desire to participate in a year-long cross-departmental and unit conversation about portfolios, folio thinking, and pedagogy.


If you left last week’s workshop interested in making a more “formal” commitment, then consider applying to participate the Spring 2017 ePortfolio Development Community, which involves redesigning an existing course or developing a new course for delivery in 2017/18 in which portfolios and folio thinking are a central tenet of your pedagogy, the learning outcomes, and course assessment activities. This opportunity involves dedicated section release. See the Capilano University ePortfolio Project page, including the application form, on Frontlines. (CapU Employees/Faculty only) Please submit a completed application form electronically by noon on Thursday, September 1st. Let me know if you have any questions!
