Fall 2017 FaCET Conference

FaCET is pleased to announce that the Fall 2017 FaCET Conference, scheduled for Thursday, September 7, 2017, will focus on how ePortfolios can be used to support student learning, student engagement and encourage student reflection.

The conference is scheduled from 830-430 at the Kauffman Conference Center, 4801 Rockhill Road.

This day-long workshop will be led by Dr. Cathy Buyarski, the Executive Director for Student Success Initiatives and the Associate Dean for Student Affairs at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis. Within these roles, Dr. Buyarski provides leadership and oversight for academic advising, career development, student employment, new student orientation, learning assistance, TRiO programs, and scholarship programs for students from at-risk backgrounds. With a background in student affairs and student development, Cathy has significant experience in building programs that support retention and student success. She holds a master’s degree in college student development from Oklahoma State University and a doctorate in higher education administration from the University of Minnesota. Her dissertation focused on collaboration between academic and student affairs as a way to enhance student learning.

The workshop will focus on the varied uses of ePortfolios for assessment of course objectives, indicators of competency based learning, and determining the achievement of course learning outcomes. ePortfolios have been identified as a “high impact learning experience” for students when they are implemented effectively with student learning as the focus. The workshop will be hands-on and will provide you the opportunity to explore how ePortfolios can be used in courses, academic programs and to support students’ learning experiences.
