Abstract

In this paper, we describe how new faculty members engaged in the creation of their e-portfolios over a period of two half-day sessions. The goals of these sessions were web page literacy and the construction of the e-portfolios. Faculty members were first taught using online tools basic web publishing and then using an HTML template constructed their e-portfolios. During these sessions faculty, as a collaborative group, shared their teaching philosophies and methodologies for increasing student engagement. They also reflected on their teaching practices. The outcomes of these sessions were their e portfolios and a greater repertoire of teaching strategies.
