At the heart of the new Integrative Core Curriculum is the e-portfolio, a space for students to build connections among their various learning experiences in and out of the classroom. An important goal of the Ithaca Seminar is to set the groundwork for students to think integratively over the next four years, developing essential metacognitive skills. However, the literature shows that this does not come naturally to students—they need scaffolded support throughout the semester, as well as interactive teacher and peer feedback. Writing’s Dr. Mary Lourdes Silva and Dr. Susan Adams Delaney will host workshops at the Center for Faculty Excellence to demonstrate effective strategies for instructors to provide that support and to help students make their thinking visible within TaskStream.
