Paper Pumpkin:  Teacher Ed Assignments

Blog Post created by Kylie Edgecomb on Oct 26, 2015

My institution is known for elementary and secondary teacher education.  In the past, student teachers had to complete both a work sample and portfolio.  Students often turned in bulky three-ring binders to their supervisors.  It was cumbersome, paper rubrics were used, and students had to coordinate a time with their supervisors for feedback sessions. Since our implementation of Canvas, both of these assignments have been converted to submissions in Canvas.  Naturally, the portfolio assignment utilizes the e-portfolio section of Canvas.  Supervisors now have the opportunity to grade these submissions online, using the coordinating rubrics to provide feedback.  No bulky binders, no hassle of setting up follow-up sessions; it is now all online!  A great and simple solution for two very important submissions!
