The preceding newsletter suggested that electronic portfolios constitute a key element in modern liberal education since they enable us to move beyond the “sanctity of the content” in favor of a more learner-centric approach. Furthermore, it was argued that electronic portfolios enable students to develop reflective skills with respect to learning goals and objectives. Following on, this newsletter, will argue that a variety of other learning technologies can also contribute to enhanced pedagogy and enable faculty to deliver student-centered lectures: i.e. lectures which deliver “the sacred content”, but also engage students and thus contribute towards active and critical learning.
