Session One: ePortfolios & Service Engagement: A Perfect Marriage, presented by Kristin Norris and Bob Bringle. Student presenter, Nichole Davis.  According to the Lumina Degree Qualifications Profile, civic learning is important on every type of college campus. However, what are we doing to document and assess civic learning? Are your   Dr__Bringle_websize_with_frame students able to articulate and provide evidence of the civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to be successful in today’s global workforce? Session attendees will be  introduced to ePortfolios and how they can be used to document both student and faculty service engagement. Participants will see student and faculty portfolios and be challenged to think about how ePortfolios could be used within their course, program, or unit to make the learning more visible and applicable for them as future professionals.

Session Two: The Power of Digital Storytelling as an Emerging Strategy in Service Learning, presented by Kristin Norris and Libby Laux.  Student presenter, Joseph Spaulding. Digital storytelling is a creative way to integrate technology and learning in any discipline. Although not a new teaching strategy, they are an effective means for facilitating     reflection, documenting experiences, and illustrating student learning and therefore very applicable to service learning. In this session, participants Kristin_Norris_web_size_with_framewill see how digital stories can yield meaningful products of student learning while also guiding students through a process that helps them articulate and demonstrate their civic knowledge, skills, and dispositions in a powerful way. Session participants will be challenged to think about how emerging technologies can assist students in presenting themselves to others as civic-minded  professionals and how they can integrate this teaching strategy into their course or program.
