In this workshop. Christine Slade and Shari Bowker from the Institute of Teaching and Learning Innovation at the University of Queensland will provide a brief overview of how eportfolios can be used to support feedback uptake and self-regulated learning. The workshop will include facilitated group discussion about feedback challenges participants are facing, and then provide space in a small group environment to think about how we might incorporate new feedback opportunities in our own practice.
Christine contributes to UQ’s priorities in assessment and academic integrity, with leadership responsibilities in the implementation of the University’s first Academic Integrity Action Plan, membership of the UQ Assessment Sub-Committee and Chair of the UQ Assessment Working Party. She was a member of the TEQSA-funded team of experts who delivered national academic integrity workshops, under the leadership of Professor Tracey Bretag, and the accompanying toolkit of resources.
Christine holds a PhD critiquing institutional capacity to address complex challenges, and a postgraduate qualification in academic practice. In May 2018, Christine was recognised as a Principal Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (HEA), UK, for sustained strategic impact on teaching and learning at inter/national and institutional levels.
Christine’s research interests include digital pedagogies, assessment and ethics. She is a member of the UQ Digital Health Network sponsored by the Global Change Institute, the organising committee for the Australian ePortfolio Forum and webinars, and the international Association of Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-based Learning Digital Ethics Taskforce. Christine enjoys working with undergraduate students in short-term teaching and learning research projects.
Shari is an experienced teacher who began working at The University of Queensland in 2011. Shari joined ITaLI in 2019 from the Office of Medical Education in the Faculty of Medicine.
Shari’s focus on portfolio pedagogies fosters assessment designs for student-driven learning and feedback uptake to encourage the development of reflective, self-regulated learners. She partners with colleagues within ITaLI and Faculties to map out the pedagogical purposes of using ePortfolios to capture students’ educational journeys and professional identity development. Her student-staff partnerships facilitate collaborative learning of how ePortfolios support digital identities and employability awareness from the student’s point of view.
Shari holds a Bachelor’s of Science and Bachelor’s of Education. She is currently studying an Master’s of Education focusing on inclusive educational practices.
