ePortfolios: Assess Student Learning and Help Students Stand Out in the Interviewing Process

This session will explore ways in which the learning process can be made visible through the use of ePortfolios (eP). Topics covered will include choosing the right type of eP to meet learning objectives, effectively organizing an eP, ways ePs can be used by students beyond graduation, and how our students use the eP to improve their interviewing opportunities. This session will include actual examples of ways the eP has been used on our campus. Many students take their eP presentations with them when they graduate – creating a show case/job portfolio and professional development plan using Brightspace Integrated Learning Platform.
