Paper Pumpkin: Teacher Ed Assignments

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!
