What a nice surprise this morning when a colleague mentioned Helen Barrett, the “grandmother of eportfolios” was just down the hall! She is here one day to do an eportfolio/Taskstream workshop with our Teacher Education program. Being in need of some good audio speakers for her demo, I loaned her my Harmon Kardon Sound Sticks, so the room was rocking to music when I left.
We are fortunate to have Helen as a guest speaker last February for our ePortfolio Dialogue Day: Digital Stories of Deep Learning for Students and Faculty which was a rousing success all around. She is the world guru on eports and a great colleague.
