Columbia University join the growing PebblePad Community
We are excited to announce that PebblePad will begin working with the Columbia University School of Professional Studies (SPS). SPS will use PebblePad to test innovative approaches to teaching and learning based on portfolio pedagogies.
SPS has already identified a number of use cases for PebblePad, including workbooks for developing student career competencies and co-curricular learning, as well as capstone projects. The ability to conduct robust reporting and assessment on these workbooks will allow faculty and staff to more easily track student progress and provide timely feedback in real time.
If you're considering your own portfolio adventure or simply want to learn more about the kinds of features and functionality you might want to consider when scoping out your portfolio requirements, then please do have a look at our free portfolio guide and checklist.
About PebblePad and Student-Centered Learning
We are really looking forward to helping the SPS Team at Columbia University implement their innovative student-centered teaching and learning initiatives. Here at PebblePad, we are having an increasing number of conversations with universities across the globe about what portfolio and student-centered learning needs to look like for today's tech-savvy learners. In fact, we've had so many conversations over recent times that we recently commissioned research into Global Trends in Higher Education and published a free guide on 6 steps to kick-starting a student-centered learning strategy.
