Supporting reflection through an AI powered reflection bot
What if you could ask all of your learners targeted reflection questions based on their previous input? This is exactly what Riff, the reflection chatbot by Leticia Britos Cavagnaro from the d.school at Stanford University does. In this webinar, Leticia will show us and demonstrate with us how Riff works and how it differs from other reflection question prompts that you may have used in your portfolio practice.
Come along to this session if you are interested in the intersection between portfolios and artificial intelligence.
You can win one of four copies of Leticia's latest book, Experiments in reflection, due at the end of November 2023, sponsored by AAEEBL and ePortfolios Australia.
Leticia Britos Cavagnaro, Ph.D., is a scientist turned designer with a knack for creating transformative learning experiences. She holds a Ph.D. in Developmental Biology from Stanford's School of Medicine, and is a former member of the Research in Education & Design Lab (REDlab) from Stanford’s School of Education. She is the co-founder and co-Director of the University Innovation Fellows, a program of the Hasso Plattner Institute of Design (d.school), which empowers students to be co-designers of their education in collaboration with faculty and leaders at their schools. Leticia was the founding Deputy Director of the National Center for Engineering Pathways to Innovation (Epicenter), an NSF-funded initiative that operated from 2011 to 2016 to foster innovation and entrepreneurship in engineering education across the United States.
Leticia works with educators from hundreds of schools and across disciplines in transforming their teaching practices by applying design abilities and pedagogical levers through the Teaching and Learning Studio program of the d.school. In addition, she works with corporate, non-profit and education leaders in the US and abroad in exploring how design can embolden leadership and drive responsible innovation. Leticia teaches Advanced Reflective Practice and Capstone Project to graduate students from Stanford’s Design Impact MS program, and uses emerging technologies to empower learners to be self-directed, action-oriented, and reflective shapers of the future. She was born in Uruguay, grew up in Colombia, and lives in San Francisco with her husband.

Feature image: Generated by Midjourney using the prompt " Create a line drawing of a university student sitting in front of a laptop without logo along with a robot and they have a conversation." The image shows a robot on the left looking at a laptop. Across from the robot sits a young woman with a ponytail and glasses who looks to be holding a smartphone, but she seems to look at the back of the laptop screen. In the background is a stylized cityscape, and on the table that they are sitting at is a couple of red flowers.
