It utilizes field recordings by blending songs and spoken word pieces with the soundscapes in which we listen to them – whether it be played along with Los Angeles traffic, the sound of a meal being prepared, or waves at the beach.

LeP Process

Learning e-Portfolio Process

Learning ePortfolio Process

COLLECT

Creation of Learning ePortfolios occurs during the Orientation/Registration process in July and August.

Students use the Learning ePortfolio to collect artifacts as evidence of their learning throughout their time at Otis. These artifacts encompass:

  • Lived Experiences: which include work, life, activities, co-curriculars, lectures and/or gallery visits
  • Process: this is research, drafts and/or sketches
  • Learning: for example reading, writing, designing and/or collaborating.

 

SELECT

Students select artifacts for the Learning ePortfolio from the various assignments given in their courses. In certain circumstances, specific direction is given by instructors. The material selected for the Learning ePortfolio should best represent the student's work in a course and fulfill the learning outcomes as stated in the syllabus.

Students should consult the instructor with concerns or questions regarding what to upload on the Learning ePortfolio.

 

Reflect

Reflection is the most critical aspect of the Learning ePortfolio. Students reflect on the artifacts (assignments) archived on the Learning ePortfolio. Instructors will provide direction in class.

Students are better able to determine their own growth and learning when they take a moment to pause and think about what they have learned in a given course. Consequently, students stand better prepared to apply that knoweldge in future Otis courses as well as in their studio practice.
