Using ePortfolios to Prepare Students for the 21st Century Workforce
November 20, 2015
10:00 am - 11:00 am
The Kiva Room in Farish Hall

Presented by: Karen Weber, Director, Office of Undergraduate Research

Students from all majors can showcase their academic and professional achievements through the use of ePortfolios, professional websites that include information on education, research, service, and leadership. When students develop ePortfolios, they have an opportunity to reflect upon their education, as well as demonstrate their best work to potential employers. This presentation will provide an overview on how ePortfolios can be used to bolster 21st century skills and help prepare students for life upon graduation.

Recordings of past presentations can be found here.

Warm regards,

Paula Myrick Short
