The Solution: e-Portfolios
Student e-Portfolios are personalized, Web-based collections of
selected coursework and artifacts of co-curricular activities, annotated
with students' reflective commentary. "The process of e-portfolio
development encourages students to become more actively involved
in planning, and more responsible for achieving their own educational
goals," said David DiBiase, Director of the e-Education Institute
in the College of Earth and Mineral Sciences. "Students also
benefit by sharing examples of their work with potential employers,
by mastering transferable information technology skills, and by
demonstrating knowledge gained beyond the classroom."
e-Portfolios are a collaborative effort of ITS, the Division of
Student Affairs, and the e-Education Institute.
