Portfolio record of an assignment
In a graduate course on the scholarship of teaching and learning, for instance, one in-class activity involved the circulation of six cards, each one starting with the statement, “The most important kind of scholarly inquiry into the classroom is . . .”
Students first completed that statement and then passed their cards to the left. For the card that they received, they then added a second statement, one that would logically and stylistically follow from the previous statement. After passing again and receiving another card, they added a third statement, and so on.
The goal was to complete a six-sentence paragraph that sounded sufficiently coherent that it might have been written by a single author.
The results of that exercise are recorded below:
