Workshop Description: PowerPoint Based Portfolios – Sharing a format that can be used in any content area for students and instructors to build portfolios
Integrating technology into our courses improves instruction. How can students prove what they know? Using presentation software, students and instructors can build portfolios using artifacts, rationales, and hyperlinks to demonstrate what they know. This one hour session demonstrates a format that makes the portfolio process sensible, usable, and informative. Students and instructors can used the final product in a professional setting (job application/interview process, meet possible graduation standards, etc..) and gain transferable skills. The intention of this session is to demonstrate the format of an electronic portfolio using PowerPoint. It is not the intention to teach basic presentation skills. An electronic porfolio is a great student product and assessment tool.
