ePortfolio Pilot Fall 2014
Check back soon!
In January 2014, UNCW, along with three other UNC campuses, was awarded a grant by UNC General Administration under the call for proposals Assuring High Quality Degrees: Student Learning Outcomes: Using e-Portfolios to Assess Core Competencies (these UNC core competencies correspond to UNCW's Learning Goals critical thinking and thoughtful expression (written)).
UNCW's pilot is Centering Student Learning in the Cross-Programmatic Assessment of Core Competencies. The first step in the pilot was to survey UNCW faculty and staff about the features they believe are important in an eportfolio product. These resulting criteria were used in the evaluation of six products. After the thorough review by the eportfolio team and student mentors, Digication was chosen for the pilot.
In Fall 2014, Digication eportfolios will be implemented in nine courses and the Certified Internship Program. Please check back to see our progress!
The team working on the pilot represent educational programs in Chemistry, English, Recreational Therapy, Instructional Technology, Education of Young Children, Educational Leadership, and Economics, and support offices in General Educaton Assessment, University Studies, the Center for Teaching Excellence, Learning Management Systems, and Career Services.
