This session will describe the process that Virginia Tech has employed for re-envisioning ePortfolios on their campus in response to campus change initiatives. The goal of their new ePortfolio program is to empower students to demonstrate their unique student experience and how they will apply their knowledge and skills to future endeavors in a meaningful and marketable way. The program aims to highlight intentionality in student learning by connecting a complex and interwoven network of peers, mentors, advisors, librarians and employers through reflective ePortfolio practices. In this session, you will learn: best practices and lessons learned for researching, selecting, and implementing an ePortfolio tool that meets unique requirements; Virginia Tech’s ongoing process that was employed for designing and promoting the new ePortfolio program; success stories from the initial launch, including program and student examples; and opportunities that were presented for improving the program moving forward to the entire campus.
