This course will guide you through the process of building an online e-portfolio. The e-portfolio development process will help you to identify deep connections between your learning, your experiences, and your life goals. Engage in hands-on activities exploring your personal strengths; organize and document your accomplishments; and highlight evidence of your learning in creative and visual ways that showcase your skills and knowledge. You will conclude this course with the skillset and a multimedia framework necessary to maintain a personal e-portfolio that will help you to stay focused on your goals, give you a place to store your significant learning experiences, and that can grow and change as you do. (Open to students of all grade-levels and all academic majors, no prior experience with technology is necessary).
What’s an integrative knowledge e-portfolio and why should I make one? During this interactive workshop offered by the Center for Experiential Learning & Diversity (EXPD), you will answer these questions and gain an overview of building an online integrative knowledge portfolio, demonstrating your learning in and outside the classroom. Whether you are interested in developing an e-portfolio for a class, for potential employers to complement your resume, or as a way to document and reflect on your experiences, this workshop will provide you with a starting place. This workshop will:
- Guide you through short hands-on activities that will allow you to begin identifying deep connections between your learning, your experiences and your life-goals
- Share example integrative knowledge e-portfolios
- Provide you with resources for creating your e-portfolio
