e-Portfolios

by Tilton on September 7, 2011

One of the key areas that I wanted to focus on this academic year was to create classes that would be beneficial to the local community. According to the Associate Dean and other colleagues of mine that key skill set that could help the local community was to teach people how to create e-Portfolios. For those not familiar with e-Portfolios, e-Portfolios are a combination resume, website, blog and portfolio. There seemed to be a couple of standards that e-Portfolios followed. So, I proposed a e-Portfolio workshop that was one-third resume-building seminar, one-third career counseling and one-third  website development. The main purpose of the class is to show student how to create a website that allows them to promote themselves to perspective employers. I wanted the format to be flexible enough to accommodate a wide variety of career while at the same time could be narrowed to focus on one field of study. I’ve included the syllabus in the post.

This is so curious. We just talked about a big project to teach technical writing, software and Web Development to unemployed and under employed in our area. I made the suggestion to the coordinator to have the students create an ePortfolio to display their pre-tests, what they learned during class, their certificates, etc, so that a prospective employer can always see what it is they learned.

What a coincident when I found your site through EA.
