Lunch & Learns

Posted on Thursday, October 15, 2015

Academic Technology hosts a series of Lunch & Learn events throughout the year to gather together groups of faculty and administrators around a teaching and learning theme, such as ePortfolios, Affordable Learning Solutions, and Quality Online Learning and Teaching. The goal of these Lunch & Learn events is to share teaching expertise, celebrate successes and learn about new opportunities to advance teaching and learning at SF State.

ePortfolio Lunch and Learn March 17, 2016

Faculty and staff are invited to join Academic Technology’s ePortfolio Lunch and Learn on Thursday, March 17th from 12:00-1:00 in the Library Faculty Commons LIB 286.  Over an informal lunch, we will hear from a number of faculty who will briefly (in a 5-10 min. "lightening-round" style) share an example of their ePortfolio work with students, or a practice/assignment and any other experience(s) in working with ePortfolios. We will also introduce our newly adopted ePortfolio platform (Portfolium) that is available to all SF State students at no cost now and after graduation.  

If you would like to attend, fill out this RSVP  form by March 10th: [REGISTRATION CLOSED]  We look forward to seeing you there!
