Resources

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!

SPS is delighted to present our 2012/2013 ePortfolio Student Showcase! The showcase, which is hosted on an SPS ePortfolio site, highlights student work in individual courses, programs, and capstone projects at both the bachelors and masters level.

Types of ePortfolios

ePortfolio provides a window into our students’ lives: who they are and who they aspire to be. While reviewing nominations to this year’s showcase, we were delighted to learn that we have a published children’s book author and a video/film/TV producer enrolled in our programs.

Digital BadgeThanks to all of the instructors who nominated students for inclusion in the showcase and to the ePortfolio Team for encouraging students to self-nominate. 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.

If you’re interested in submitting your ePortfolio for an opportunity to be selected as one of the “Featured Studies ePortfolios,” you still have plenty of time to do so – the nomination deadline for next year’s showcase is May 24, 2014.
