About the webinar

Griffith Sciences has a major objective to innovate and build better practice in blended learning by putting learning first. In 2017, Griffith Sciences instituted a blended learning fund to support innovative initiatives utilising technology. To get the most out of this initiative a comprehensive training and support process was developed including the development of learning designs for each project and a community of usable scholarly practice was formulated to discuss ideas and strategies.

This webinar provides a brief description of the Griffith Sciences Blended Learning Model and how it is being used to implement and document blended learning principles and designs in STEM education.

Using the ePortfolio space for creative arts learning in a secondary school

Tuesday 15th May 2018, 13:00 AEST

Tuesday 15th May 2018Tuesday 15th May 2018

This webinar will provide an overview of a unique pilot project exploring the value of adding a webpage/eportfolio to an Aboriginal Art Class process in a Junior Secondary College in Victoria.

Discovering self-identity through storying in online portfolios, in tandem with artistic and creative classes (e.g. art, music, dance, drama, writing and media), aims to promote engagement for students by reconnecting them to cultural heritage and society; and as a beginning to imaging their future self and repatriation of identity.

The pilot project results are very encouraging, and the researchers are working towards a full implementation of the learning model, Aboriginal art-making + ePortfolio, in a new project, this time focussing on music as the art-form. As well as outlining the pilot project outcomes they will show some student examples, talk about the technology hitches that led to using PebblePad as the ePortfolio format, and discuss plans for future directions.
