Build Up Your (e)Portfolio: Getting Students Using Digital Portfolios to Invest in Their Future
Amanda Keesee, Coordinator, Academic Technology, University of Central Oklahoma
Today, as students head out into the real world they are asked to demonstrate not just a completion of a degree or set of classes, but to provide a more holistic view of their capabilities and experiences from both inside and outside the classroom. Portfolios have been used as a form of authentic assessment for decades but in the past students were limited in what they could share. Now, with digital portfolios, like Brightspace’s ePortfolio tool, students can highlight a wide range of skills and knowledge not only through text and images but also with video, audio files, links and much more.
In this webinar you will hear how a student can invest in their future by building and maintaining a digital portfolio throughout their educational career. This webinar will focus on eportfolios as a form of assessment and knowledge showcase, discuss getting student buy-in by highlighting the benefits of a digital portfolio, and will include tips/tricks for students who are ready to create their first ePortfolio Presentation.
