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.

 

Ongoing Projects: 

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.
