Lehman prescription for success2011 qcc


Published on

This session describes the Prescription for Success program: a model integrating ePortfolio, Writing Across the Curriculum, and Service Learning in a community college. Graduate nursing students provided structured ePortfolio and writing workshops to improve the information literacy, technology and writing skills of students in a pre-licensure associate degree program. Students in their capstone experience were eligible to submit their ePortfolios to the Nursing Student ePortfolio Showcase Award. ePortfolios were judged by a cadre of community partners from healthcare organizations and four year nursing programs. This presentation will provide an overview of the integrative curriculum with highlights from graduate student workshops and links to the Award ceremony.
