  1. Hi, Elizabeth.

    Day 2 mentions presentations. Will this workshop cover the use of e-portfolios?

    I desperately need to become fluent in their use!!!



    • Hi Carolyn,

      The ePortfolio will be introduced on day 2, but we weren’t planning on spending a lot of time on it. If you need some assistance, I recommend that we set up some time to meet 1×1.

      Kind regards,
