Hello, participants in the WPA 2007 Assessment Institute! We (Darren, Michael and Margaret) look forward to working with you on July 12.

The purpose of this blog is to offer everyone a chance to “meet” each other before the institute takes place. It also includes some preparatory materials that may be helpful to you. (Preparatory materials are not required reading–attend to them as you are able.) We can also use this blog after the institute to post material and exchange ideas for those of us working with ePortfolios in our classes, programs, and/or institutions. 

Please take a minute to introduce yourself and offer any information you’d like your fellow participants to know. (Click on “Comments” to read others’ introductions.) Some starter questions–

What brings you to this institute?

What interests you about electronic portfolios?

What do you hope to get out of this institute?

(Or make up your own questions … )
