ABSTRACT
The article focuses on an integrated learning project started at LaGuardia Community College in New York. The college educates New Yorkers of all backgrounds, ages, and means and helps students become full participants in the city's economic and civic life. LaGuardia's work with the Integrated Learning Project seeks to serve the needs of these students from two complementary directions. The first part of the project, the e-portfolio initiative, provides students with a tool for collecting their academic work and their reflections on their learning, and for sharing their portfolios on the Internet. Funded by the Title V program of the U.S. Department of Education, the LaGuardia e-portfolio is a multifaceted structure. It prompts students to take more responsibility for their learning while also providing faculty with snapshots of student growth that can help them better understand individual students as well as the broader process of learning and teaching. The national Integrated Learning Project has offered LaGuardia a chance to think, work, and connect with other colleges.
