Coming on January 24th, 2014 - The C2L Catalyst for Learning Resources and Research Website.
At the end of this month, the Making Connections National Resource Center, Connect to Learning (C2L) Project will open the Catalyst for Learning Resources and Research website to the public. Assembling data, strategies, and expertise contributed by campuses across the C2L network, the Catalyst site will offer an array of field-tested practices and detailed stories that trace the developmental trajectories of successful ePortfolio initiatives.
On the Catalyst site, C2L campuses will share well-rounded portfolios documenting their practices, linked into a fully searchable database. Sample student portfolios and campus data will be flanked by multimedia presentations and analytical essays. Offering strategic insight and practical tools, Catalyst for Learning will become a resource for educators and ePortfolio leaders nationwide.
Check back here after January 24th, 2014 for the public web address of the Catalyst website!
The Making Connections National Resource Center
The Making Connections National Resource Center at
LaGuardia Community College supports systematic exchange across higher
education, engaging creative educators on issues of inquiry, reflection,
and integrative learning. Working with educators from a wide range of
colleges and universities, Making Connections offers workshops,
seminars, conferences, consultations, campus visits, and sustained
collaborations. Building upon LaGuardia’s effective campus initiatives
and best practices nationwide, Making Connections links theoretical
insights to practical innovations such as ePortfolio pedagogy, learning
communities, contextualization of basic skills mathematics, peer
teaching, holistic assessment, inquiry learning, and faculty
development. Sharing practice and generating knowledge, we advance
teaching and learning at LaGuardia and colleges worldwide.
Connect to Learning: ePortfolio, Engagement and Student Success
is a 3-year FIPSE-funded project coordinated by LaGuardia's Making
Connections National Resource Center in partnership with the Association
for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-based Learning (AAEEBL) - an emerging international professional association with 100 institutional members focused on ePortfolio practice.
Funded through a 5-year Title V grant, the Making Transfer Connections: ePortfolio and Student Success Across CUNY
program works with two senior colleges (Queens and Lehman) and three
community colleges (Queensborough, Bronx and LaGuardia) in a partnership
designed to facilitate transfer and ensure student progress toward the
Bachelor’s degree. Under LaGuardia’s leadership, the five CUNY colleges
employ ePortfolio practice in strengthening three areas pivotal to
transfer success: instruction, advisement, and assessment.
