Just recently, Liberty Hyded Bailey Scholars Program faculty fellow Karla Loebick and Program Director Jeno Rivera presented their research at the 45th annual National Society of Experiential Education (NSSE) conference in San Antonio, Texas. Both presented on learning integrations made visible through ePortfolios. In 2014, BSP adopted ePortfolios through the use of Digication as a High Impact Practice to document, process, and share learning experiences. Having a digital portfolio is one of the program requirements in order for students to receive a minor in Leadership and Integrated Learning.
Additionally, Rivera presented her research on identifying high-impact practices through stories of value. She shared research findings defining common characteristics of learning cultures that engage learners and faculty to produce high value integrated learning experiences to produce T-shaped graduates. Her work is in collaboration with Bill Heinrich, Director of the MSU Hub for Teaching, who was unable to attend.
