TLTS: What We Learned During the Ithaca College IPad Pilot
The Ithaca College Information Technology Services and the Center for Faculty Excellence co-sponsored an iPad pilot program with 40 faculty members during the 2012-13 academic year. Each semester 20 iPads were loaned to faculty who applied to participate in the program. The goal was to assist faculty members who wanted to envision how they could use an iPad for teaching, research, and/or personal productivity. Faculty submitted proposals with their goals and committed to participate in a faculty learning community which consisted of online forums and weekly brownbags. The Fall program provided information about the many possible uses of iPads in an academic setting while also offering insights into the issues involved in managing and supporting iPads on campus. Presented by Marilyn Dispensa, Ithaca College.
TLTS: The Development of an E-Portfolio Solution to Integrate Practice and Theory in an Undergraduate Nursing Program
Portfolios have a long-standing history in education with strong roots in the field of visual arts. Portfolio assignments have been adopted in recent years by a variety of disciplines including education, nursing and the humanities. With the ever-increasing list of easy to use web technologies, portfolios have also transitioned from a paper binder format to the digital age of websites and blogs. It is now easier than ever to create a personal showcase of a students work electronically. E-portfolios have also expanded from individual course activities to demonstrate a more holistic view of a student throughout their entire graduation. They key, however, to a successful student portfolio requires more than the posting of evidence and artifacts of learning. A true learning portfolio requires reflection on a student’s own learning experiences along with collaboration and mentoring from others (Zubizarreta, 2008). To nursing faculty, the portfolio provides evidence of competency evaluation and the meeting of program outcomes. Millennials enroll with expectations of cutting-edge technology being integrated throughout their program, so an out dated paper portfolio just would not suffice (Parker & Myrick, 2008). Presented by Tammy Roman and Katie McDonald, St. John Fisher College.
