The Center for Teaching and Learning is offering an all-day faculty 
seminar on ePortfolio pedagogies and how ePortfolios (known at QC as 
QPortfolios) can be instrumental in enhancing the transfer experience for 
students.  The seminar will take place on Queens College campus (exact 
location TBA) on Friday, June 8 (from 10 am to 5 pm), and will include 
general discussion about ePortfolios as well as discussion in break-out 
groups about the following possible tracks (depending on participant 

* Business/Accounting/Economics 
* Education 
* General Education 
* Natural Sciences 
* Portfolios for reappointment/tenure/promotion 
* Transfer 
* Writing 

The seminar will include faculty from QC and from other CUNY campuses that 
participate in the Making Transfer Connections project: LaGuardia, 
Queensborough, Bronx, and Lehman.  (Making Transfer Connections is a Title 
V [US Department of Education] funded project on ePortfolio and transfer.) 

Both adjunct and full-time faculty are invited to participate.  In the 
application form, please indicate how you plan on using ePortfolios in 
your classroom, and what track in the above list interests you most.   

QC participants will each receive a brand new laptop computer on loan for 
up to three years, to facilitate their ePortfolio work.  Because of this, 
space is limited, and we will give preference to participants who indicate 
departmental support for ePortfolios.  For questions, please contact 
Fei-Wen Pirovolikos at fpirovolikos at qc.cuny.edu. 

Please apply no later than the end of May 15, 2012:
