Archiving and Migrating your ePortfolio

  1. 1. Migrating and Archiving Student ePortfoliosGraduating Students: Congratulations on being part of the first cohort to successfully developand maintain curriculum-related learning eportfolios as part of the Arts and Administrationgraduate program. Your input, feedback, and willingness to experiment with us was integral tothe success of this first department-wide implementation.You have successfully developed learning eportfolios as a way of documenting anddemonstrating your professional and academic growth over time, your curricular and co-curricular achievements, and applied your knowledge to a wide array of professional and projectweblogs. Lifelong eportfoliosWe encourage you to continue to apply this knowledge to lifelong learning through lifelongeportfolios. The basic tenet of learning eportfolios - making growth and learning explicit - isone that can be applied to any professional endeavor. Your skills in documentation throughdigital story, narrative, video, images, text, and more, are a sampling of the tools and knowledgeframeworks that you offer the community.I hope that you will take your learning eportfolio, migrate it to your own blog server space, andmorph it into your own professional eportfolio in order to: ● document professional achievements ● demonstrate your professional growth ● capture transformative moments through narrative and imagesAs you prepare to graduate, make a plan for migrating your learning eportfolio. Below youwill find instructions on how to do this. Once you graduate, your “student page” on the AADCommons, will be moved to an “alumni page”. As soon as you get your new blog address,please send it to us, so we can keep your information updated, and keep you connected.
