E-Portfolios -- Selling Yourself Online to Obtain an Interview - Course Technology Computing Conference
Presenter: Leslie Martin & Teresa Worthy
How do you sell yourself online? How do you easily provide potential employers with examples of your work and display your skills? What are two free options of creating an online portfolio? What is an E-Portfolio and how can it be used? This presentation will demonstrate and discuss tools that are being used in our OST 289-Office Administration and OST 233-Office Publications Design courses to create E-Portfolios to share with potential employers. Both of these courses are taught by Leslie as online courses, and the online portfolios are used as the final exam and culminating experience. The E-Portfolios in both classes meet the course outcomes for the courses. In the OST 289 course, students compile various documents that are created throughout the semester when creating their portfolio. In the OST 233 course, the students come up with their own business name and carry the name, tag line, and logo throughout the various desktop publications they learn during the semester to create their portfolio. You will be able to view the two free websites that we use and see some of our students’ work. The goals for the session are: Discuss “Why use E-Portfolios?”, introduce two types of e-portfolios used, demonstrate both types we have used, discuss items included in each type of portfolio, and discuss ways the e-portfolios can be shared with potential employers. Attendees will walk away with the websites used and the ability to take this information home and incorporate e-portfolios in their classes.
