"Learning logs" topic of Aug. 9 Faculty Center workshop

The BYU Faculty Center has invited John Zubizarreta, a professor at Columbia College in South Carolina, to facilitate a workshop with BYU instructors on Monday, Aug. 9, from 1-3:30 p.m. A nationally acclaimed teacher, Zubizarreta is author of an important new book, "The Learning Portfolio" (Anker: 2004), about how learning journals (or "learning logs") help students process their learning in a course.

A learning portfolio is a representative (or selective) collection of a student's work drawn from and documenting course work. It allows teachers an "authentic" assessment of the quality of the student's past or ongoing performance. In addition, it empowers students to reflect upon their learning, to self-assess, and to continuously expand or otherwise improve their learning and work.

All full- and part-time BYU faculty are invited to register for this interactive workshop. To register, please send your name, department, e-mail address, campus address and phone number to faculty_center@byu.edu.

For more information, contact Lynn Sorenson at ext. 2-7420.
