Formal Practice Peer Review (Weeks 5 & 6) Inclusion of necessary components (i) Additional resources and suggestions if available

le with a (iii) paragraph summarizing your suggestions or questions, in constructive terms (iv) *option: any remarks you might offer, not included in above requirements.

Practice Peer Review for Michael by Emma Mike, I think you have a great start to your proposal and have done some solid thinking about what you would like your portfolio to look like and include. I enjoyed reading through your proposal draft. I hope you will find this feedback constructive. I have organized it according to the components that were to be included and have built-in some suggestions, questions and additional resources directly into those sections as opposed to a separate paragraph at the bottom. I look forward to seeing your portfolio later on in the process! Good luck going forward! Inclusion of Necessary Components & Suggestions for Going Forward: Purpose - You have included a thorough purpose for your portfolio, including a reflection on your learning, a showcase of your work, a celebration of your personal growth (skill development, theory to practice) and a requirement for TQS category 6. Question/Objectives - Although this is not blatantly stated, I do believe that you have incorporated it into your purpose. Perhaps you could craft a general objective statement based on your purpose? For example: To create a comprehensive ePortfolio to serve as a reflective tool for my learning throughout the MET program. Audience - You have defined a clear audience for which you will be tailoring your portfolio to. Will you be using it as a tool for yourself in the future? Should you then include yourself as an audience member? Metaphor - I like how you have chosen a metaphor that is personally relevant to you. I have chosen a sport metaphor as well and based on previous portfolios I have seen, it can work quite well. I understand why you have chosen Basketball, but curious to know if it parallels to your MET journey/learning in any way or if you are simply using it as an organizational tool. - I enjoy the way you have broken down your metaphor into sections. You may want to check out Jonathan Tangs portfolio (in the archives from last years cohort). He used a Volleyball metaphor and has broken his up into sections similar to what you have done. What is the evidence? What will be included? - It looks like you have put a significant amount of time into purposefully selecting your artifacts to fit into your metaphor sections. Will you be using only one artifact per course? Im struggling with how much is

enough but how much is too much! I like how you have included all video content into the Showtime section seems very fitting! How are the media / tools chosen used to effectively enhance the purpose? - I think choosing Weebly to construct your portfolio was a good choice. I too, selected a tool that I was already comfortable using. I think your time will be better spent on the artifact selection, insertion and reflections rather than learning a new publishing tool. I also like the clean organized format that Weebly affords. - I echo your paper overload sentiment you have stated here, but perhaps you can use this to show your growth? Perhaps you can include more web 2.0 tools closer to the end of your journey (in addition to the video content you already have) to show your transition from traditional paperbased to interactive web based? Just a thought! Key references/resources to be used - I dont see any mention of references to be used, although now that I think of it, I dont think I did this either! Perhaps you will integrate some references into your reflections when you detail how your experience has influenced your teaching practice? Procedure to be followed in achieving objective(s) or exploring question(s) and time plan for completion an assessment rubric - I dont see this part either. I was looking for some sort of timeline for how you would go about crafting your portfolio and accompanying assessment rubric. I found when I created mine, it helped me to map out exactly what I needed to do and when. I also found it quite effective in allowing me to hone in on my eportfolio vision. Expected outcomes of project - You have begun to discuss this in your significance/learning section. I can see that your expected outcome will be to reflect on your learning and how this learning has influenced your current and future teaching practice. Practice Peer Review for Ginelle by Emma Ginelle, I think you have a fantastic proposal draft here. I enjoyed reading through it and actually got numerous ideas for my own as I went through yours (thank you!). Your draft has sparked some revisions to my own proposal and thoughts about my ePortfolio! It is obvious that you have spent a great deal of time and effort thinking about the construction of your ePortfolio so it will be an effective, meaningful and skilled project. I hope you will find this feedback constructive. I have organized it according to the components that were to be included and have built-in some suggestions, questions and additional resources directly into those sections as opposed to a separate paragraph at the bottom. I look forward to watching your portfolio come together as I truly do think it will be an exceptional capstone project! Good luck going forward and thank you for the opportunity to review your proposal and in turn reflect upon mine! Inclusion of Necessary Components & Suggestions for Going Forward:

Purpose - It sounds like you have done a great deal of thoughtful reflection surrounding the purpose of your ePortfolio. Although the TQS qualification is not necessary for you at the moment, it will be nice to have the option to use the portfolio should you choose to return to BC. You mention that you are not sure how your portfolio would be of use to students I have used many former MET students portfolios as a point of reference. Whether it be reading their course reflections to see if Im interested in that course, or finding exemplars of assignments, I have found them quite useful. Perhaps this is how current or future students will use yours. If you are speaking of your current students, perhaps they will use it to see you as a positive role model for a lifelong learner. Question/Objectives - I like the way you interpreted this section. I had thought of it more of what I wanted the objective of my portfolio to be, but I like how you deduced it to be more of a place for you to generate theoretical questions surrounding the future relevance/use of your portfolio. Really good questions to consider for sure. Will you address these questions in your portfolio in some way? Or were they more for you to personally reflect upon to help you create your portfolio? Audience - You have detailed systematically who will view your portfolio. I wonder if you as an audience member should be included here. Will you use your portfolio to look back upon? Or for future use in some way? Metaphor - While you did discuss the possibility of using a skiing metaphor in your discussion thread as well as later on in your proposal, I do not see any rationale behind this possible metaphor or an explanation of why you have chosen it or how it metaphorically represents your journey through the MET program? Do they parallel in some way? Is it a personal metaphor for you? Are you an avid skier? In reviewing past portfolios, I came to the conclusion that the most effective metaphors were those that were personally meaningful to the student. Helen Barrett has some information on selecting metaphors for ePortfolios that may be of interest to you: http://electronicportfolios.org/metaphors.html and I found some interesting metaphors used in eportfolios for a Religious Studies course here: https://uwaterloo.ca/centre-for-teaching-excellence/resources/integrativelearning/eportfolios-what-why-and-how/how-instructors-waterloo-areusing-eportfolios I liked how they used an overarching quote to direct their reflection. - That being said I really like this metaphor and think it suits the portfolio really well. I really liked how you used the blue, red and black runs to signify your progression through the coursework! Fits really well! As does the aprs ski for your reflections. Provided you can explain why you chose to use this metaphor - I think you will be really successful with it! (In fact I wish I would have thought of it myself as I took up snowboarding

six years ago and the process could have paralleled nicely to my learning journey! ) What is the evidence? What will be included? - I can see that you have put a significant amount of time into reviewing your past work and selecting artifacts for your portfolio. I give you a lot of credit for wanting to re-read all the scholarly articles for the various coursework as well. Im sure it will be a very valuable experience for you and I do wish that I had made more thorough and detailed notes on the readings while I progressed through the program. - I dont see anywhere that you have specifically decided upon which artifacts to use in your portfolio have you done so already? Do you have any ideas in mind? How are the media / tools chosen used to effectively enhance the purpose? - I enjoyed how you organized your list of evidence by type of tool. This was an approach I hadnt seen before but could prove extremely useful for demonstrating the expanse of resources in your MET toolkit. - In regards to your platform choice dilemma, I think you should go with a platform you feel comfortable with and that will satisfy the design affordances that you would like to have. For instance, I feel most comfortable and have the most experience with WordPress and therefore had decided upon using that. However, now that I have begun experimenting with design and functionality, Im rethinking my choice as Im not sure it will meet my needs in terms of my overall vision for my portfolio. I have also heard good things with Wix, as well as Weebly. Check out these comparisons perhaps it will help you make a choice (they have certainly forced me to rethink mine!): http://superbwebsitebuilders.com/wix-vs-weebly/ and http://blog.thegreenfieldgroup.org/wix-vs-weebly-a-site-buildercomparison/ Key references/resources to be used - I think you are still working on this as you have noted that you will be rereading the readings etc. from your coursework. Might be a good idea if you are already taking the time to re-read, to create a type of annotated bibliography of the scholarly articles you have reviewed during the MET program (with links to any online articles). I saw someone do this (cant seem to located the example now) and thought it was quite effective (but could also be quite time consuming!) and a good resource for later on down the road! Procedure to be followed in achieving objective(s) or exploring question(s) and time plan for completion an assessment rubric - You have created a very thorough timeline for yourself well done! I like how you have organized it and used colour coding to denote tasks that are time sensitive! Looking at your timeline also reminded me to print mine out and tack it above my computer! Thank you! - I see that you have expressed concern over completing the rubric prior to you beginning to work on your portfolio. While I understand your rationale

here, may I offer you a different perspective? Beginning with the end in mind often paves a clearer picture of the road ahead. Perhaps if you were to design your end goal (the rubric for assessment of your portfolio) then you could design your portfolio to meet the criteria you have outlined for yourself? Perhaps you have already thought of this and would just like to have a better understanding of the expectations prior to completing your rubric but just thought I would throw in my two cents! Expected outcomes of project - I think you have captured well what you will be able to learn through this process. You have done a very thorough job of thinking through your ePortfolio design!
