Eportfolios: Proving Competency and Building a Network
Kryder, LeeAnne G.
Business Communication Quarterly, v74 n3 p333-341 Sep 2011
Use of eportfolios for business communication students in an advanced two-quarter capstone brought an unexpected networking opportunity, in addition to their conventional use as a showcase for student writing and research. This article discusses how students developed their eportfolios. Then, through use of a course website providing an optional link to those eportfolios, students were able to use portfolios to jumpstart conversations among other students and business communication alumni. The instructor has required both print and digital portfolios since 2006 and explains why both types of portfolios are useful, especially to enhance professional networking. (Contains 3 figures.)
