Title: Putting It All Together: Utilizing Student-Curated Portfolio Projects to Engage and Immerse Students from Week 1  Christi_Navarro

Presenter: Christi Navarro, Ph.D., M.S., Assistant Professor, Department of Public Health, Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine

Description: It is not uncommon for educators to assign semester- or weeks-long projects giving students ample time to plan and execute, only to realize that many students choose to complete the assignment the night before the due date. Although the results may vary in the quality of submissions, the intent of educators to have students synthesize course content over the span of the semester may fall flat. The objective of this session is to present a multi-faceted portfolio project that will meaningfully engage students and synthesize course concepts from the onset.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Define the Gradual Release of Responsibility Framework.
  2. Describe a multi-faceted portfolio project to engage learners meaningfully throughout the semester.
  3. Use an assignment with their learners to synthesize course concepts, promote shared learning opportunities, and practice oral presentation skills.
