PebblePad Users Group (CTE7526)Export this event to calendar

Wednesday, October 20, 2021 — 1:00 PM to 2:30 PM EDT

Location: Online

Facilitators: Katherine Lithgow (Centre for Teaching Excellence), Jennifer Yessis (School of Public Health), and Jahaira Pinto Aguila (former student in the Master of Public Health Capstone course)


​The PebblePad Users Group is an opportunity to hear how your colleagues across campus are using PebblePad. The sessions feature an instructor presenting their use of PebblePad within a course or program, discussing why they used PebblePad, and why this particular assignment, the impact it had on student learning, and any changes they would make in the future.

In this session, Jennifer Yessis will discuss how she used PebblePad to support Group Projects in a Capstone Course in the Masters of Public Health Program.  Through PebblePad, students created a group portfolio, provide classmates with feedback, and receive feedback from classmates to help improve their own project. ​

We'll review PebblePad resources, an example of a final submission (with student permission), and the logistics of implementing the assignment.  We'll have time for questions, answers, and discussion on how you might implement a similar activity in your own course or program.​
