COLL 200

COLL 200 Course Portfolio Description

Course Portfolios show how courses address COLL 200 learning expectations. A course portfolio includes the following:

  1. Course Syllabus (see details below).
  2. Narrative that describes how learning expectations are met through course experiences (see details and Narrative Template below). 
  3. Instructions for Student Assignment(s) (see details below).
  4. Comments (optional) (see details below).
  5. Results of Student Survey (pdf) related to the COLL 200 learning expectations (provided by IAE after semester grades have been submitted).
  6. Course Portfolio Rating Guide (pdf) completed by reviewers after evaluating the portfolio.
COLL 200 Steps for Constructing Course Portfolios

Your Course Portfolio will show how your course addresses COLL 200 learning expectations. Compiling the Portfolio should take about one hour per portfolio. We will send you reminders to submit components throughout the semester.

NOTE: Construct a portfolio for each COLL 200 course you are teaching.  If you are teaching more than one section of the same course, you should construct a single portfolio for the course.If you are teaching the same course both semesters of the academic year, you may construct a single portfolio either semester.

CONSTRUCT THE COURSE PORTFOLIO. (click on the items below to view details).  Submit the following materials:

Syllabus
  • Submit your course syllabus. The EPC strongly suggests including the recommended COLL 200 language (doc).  Learning Expectations 1 and 2 at the end of the recommended language are the basis of this assessment.
Narrative – Briefly describe [see Narrative Template (doc)]
  • Identify the anchor domain(s) of the course, why this course belongs in the relevant domain(s), and the percentage of the course dealing with the relevant domain(s). Domain(s) description can be seen here

  • Identify which domain(s) this course reaches out to, how the course will reach out to the other domain(s), and how this/these assignment(s) ask students to demonstrate understanding of the links/relationships to the other domain(s)

  • Description of specific topics in the home domain(s) the assignment(s) introduce(s)

  • Description of specific methods students put into practice in the assignment(s)

  • The connection between assignment(s) included in this course portfolio and the learning expectation(s) (see below):

    • Expectation 1: Students will master basic ideas and methods central to the knowledge domain(s). NOTE: if this course is anchored in two domains (“50/50”), this expectation will be assessed for both domains.

    • Expectation 2: Students will make coherent and meaningful interconnections across the academic domains. Domain(s) description can be seen here

Instructions for Student Assignment(s)
  • Select and submit instructions to students for completing assignments referenced in the Narrative (see above). In some cases, a single assignment/test may demonstrate both learning expectations. Note that Samples of Student Work are no longer required; however, if you choose to do so, you may submit Samples of Student Work and/or Rubrics/Grading Guides (doc) to further demonstrate how the assignments address learning expectations.

Comments (optional)
  • Include additional information about the course, assignment(s), methodology, etc. that may be helpful to reviewers.
