Please take some time to browse the featured ePortfolios below and feel free to leave the winners some comments on their work.

Here are a few highlights demonstrating the many ways our students are defining themselves academically or professionally while creating full records of their learning:

  • Both Joan Murray and Donna Harbans really dove into reflection. They included full reflections for each course listed in their academic sections as well as an overall program reflection.
  • Benjamin Miller delivers presentation and passion in his Business ePortfolio.  He included a great deal of video presentations and documents to support his business ideas.
  • Tobie Buford and Xian Edwards showed the many ways students can use multimedia to express themselves and compliment their course work. Both put a lot of work into their ePortfolios having shared much about themselves and their studies. Tobie used SoundCloud to make us hear the passion she has for disability studies.

Last year, the ePortfolio Team and Career Services teamed up to create a webinar to explain the nature and uses of ePortfolios that gave students the tools they needed to build their own ePortfolio in time to participate in the showcase. Last month, we teamed up again to offer our first in-person workshop titled, “Transform your ePortfolio,” where we covered how to copy and move content between ePortfolios, finding Creative Commons images, and how to identify and showcase transferable skills. If you missed the workshop, here are the final tips we gave to students:

ePortfolio Tips

  1. Think hard about the organization, appearance and general layout of your ePortfolio.
  2. Be sure all relevant documents are uploaded to their corresponding sections of the ePortfolio.
  3. Avoid bright colors and stick to the more traditional business formatting and fonts.
  4. Use meaningful pictures to bring some life to your ePortfolio.
  5. Write good content and keep it up-to-date.
  6. Use reflection to create a narrative of your transferable skills.
  7. Connect your ePortfolio with social media sites so people can find you more easily.

SHOW YOUR WORK!

Greetings from the ePortfolio team at CUNY SPS! We hope your semester is going well and that you’ve had a chance to log into your Digication account to work on one or more of your ePortfolios. Speaking of which, many students have reached out to the team about maintaining multiple ePortfolios, so we’ve decided to throw a pizza mixer (aka “workshop”) in April, just before spring break brings a brief lull (and hopefully sunny warm weather!). During this hands-on workshop, students will learn how to use ePortfolio to identify and demonstrate their transferable skills and will also work with the ePortfolio team to create a central (hub) ePortfolio by using Digication’s Organize feature. We also welcome this opportunity as chance to get feedback from students on ways we can improve the overall ePorfolio program. That, plus some delicious NYC pizza and you can’t go wrong for a Wednesday evening in April! Seats are limited so register soon. For those who can’t attend, we will post all of our resources and a video overview shortly after the event (sadly, sans pizza).

Cheers,

Sarah Morgano & Jennifer Holland

Types of ePortfolios

This year we were able to provide $100 Amazon gift cards to students whose ePortfolios were selected for inclusion in the showcase and digital badges to display within their ePortfolios.

We are now accepting nominations for students to join the School of Professional Studies Governing Council.  The Governing Council considers proposals for new courses, degrees, certificates and programs that will be offered by the School.  Two students and two alternates are needed to serve on the Council for a one year term starting on July 1, 2013 through June 30, 2014.

The role of the Council is to consider and approve new courses, certificates and degree programs that the school offers as well as advising the Dean of SPS on the administration, coordination, and development and termination of all of its programs and curricula.  The Council meets seven or eight times a year, in the afternoons at the Graduate School and University Center.  We estimate that the students elected to the Council will need to be able to commit 10 hours each month in which there is a meeting in preparation and participation.  Attendance at the meeting is very important because that is when votes are taken.

In order to serve, you must be a degree candidate in the School of Professional Studies, plan on enrolling in the fall 2013 and spring 2014 semesters and currently be in good academic standing.  Your interest, enthusiasm and unique student perspective are extremely valuable to the Council and we hope you will consider nominating yourself if you think would like to serve on the Council.

If you are interested in serving, please complete the Student Representative Self-Nomination form.  It may be submitted by email to Dr. Zeita-Marion Lobley, our Director of Student Services, at z.lobley@mail.cuny.edu on or before Tuesday, April 16, 2013.  Dr. Lobley can be reached at (646) 344-7248 if you have any questions. Students who express an interest in running will be provided with a page on the SPS website and an ePortfolio.  Through the ePortfolio candidates will inform students of their candidacy and will campaign for election.

Nominees should plan to attend a brief orientation session with SPS staff, current student representatives and faculty serving on the Council on Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 6:00 p.m.  This session will provide an overview of the role of the Governing Council, member roles and responsibilities, an overview of the election process and time for your questions.  Elections will take place from Monday, April 29, 2013 through Thursday, May 9, 2013.  Election results will be announced on May 11, 2013.  Elected student representatives will be introduced to the other members of the Governing Council at the last Council meeting of the year, scheduled for Thursday, May 16, 2013.

Thank you and I look forward to working with you in the coming year.

Sincerely,

Brian A. Peterson

The Evolution of ePortfoliosThe annual ePortfolio Showcase highlights students who have created ePortfolios for academic, professional, and/or personal use. The showcase aims to demonstrate the many ways our students are stretching definitions and creating full pictures of their learning.

This year, in addition to accepting ePortfolio nominations from faculty, students will be able to submit their own ePortfolios to the showcase. Students who are selected as one of the “Featured Student ePortfolios” will be highlighted on the ePortfolio Showcase website, receive a badge to display on their own ePortfolio, and receive an Amazon gift card.

What is an ePortfolio?

Electronic Portfolios (ePortfolios) offer a dynamic, online space to represent your professional “self” on the Web. In higher education and in the business world, ePortfolios are a way to showcase your skills, achievements, and experiences. Whether you want to share your work with friends, family, professors, colleagues, potential employers, or graduate school admissions committees — ePortfolios provide innovative ways to market yourself while taking ownership over your own work.

The online ePortfolio platform CUNY SPS has chosen is Digication. Designed specifically to showcase academic work, Digication’s easy-to-use tools allow you to create thought-provoking and visually stimulating ePortfolios that will enhance your courses and deepen your learning experience. Once you have an SPS account with Digication, you can create as many ePortfolios as you like. You will always have access to your ePortfolios, before, during and after the semester; even after you graduate.

Watch the brief “Intro to ePortfolios @ SPS” video below to learn more about this digital tool and how it can be used.

New to ePortfolio?

If you don’t have an ePortfolio account, but are interested in creating an ePortfolio to submit in our annual showcase please send an email to the ePortfolio team at ePortfolios@sps.cuny.edu. (Please be sure to include your name, SPS email address, and the degree program you are enrolled in.) The ePortfolio team will email your account information along with some basic instructions to get you started.

We’re also pleased to offer an ePortfolio Information Session on April 10, 2013 from 12:30pm – 2:00pm, where students can learn more about ePortfolios and how they can be used for both academic and career development. This webinar will explain the nature and uses of ePortfolios and will give you the tools you need to start building your own ePortfolio in time to participate in our annual ePortfolio Student Showcase.
