Digital Career Portfolios: Expanding Institutional Opportunities
Willis, Lucinda; Wilkie, LeAnn
Journal of Employment Counseling, v46 n2 p73 Jun 2009
Faculty at a small university discussed digital portfolios for technology support students who were entering the senior year without a portfolio that illustrated their knowledge and skills for potential employers. Business leaders expressed the need for graduates to demonstrate technological skills and other critical competency areas. Recent trends replace the traditional resumes and portfolios with digital portfolios, which capture student accomplishments by electronic methods. The authors note that smaller institutions may not have the funding, administrative support, or technical support necessary for such large-scale projects. They discuss how smaller institutions can provide students with opportunities to develop digital portfolios despite these constraints. (Contains 3 figures.)
