IG1: ePortfolios - Changing the Way Students Demonstrate Learning Outcomes in Post Secondary Institutions

October 02, 2014

1:45pm - 2:00pm

In the digital age, students at all levels are learning many more technical skills for use on the job, such as how to employ geographical information systems. However, learning outcomes at post-secondary institutions have continued to be primarily paper-driven. Now ePortfolios are gaining attention as a way for students to apprise employers of their acquired skills. Mohawk College, among others, has recently moved to ePortfolios as a way of demonstrating students’ learning outcomes. These may be accessed by prospective employers with the simple click of a mouse. This session will briefly discuss ePortfolios in post-secondary institutions and describe the Mohawk College experience within the School of Building and Construction Sciences.
