Using ePortfolios to Support Academic Advising: Developmental Perspectives from Three Institutions

Flipped Session
Thursday January 23, 2014 4:15pm to 5:15pm

ePortfolios have been effectively used in areas such as institutional accreditation, program accountability, and student assessment.  However, the specific applications of ePortfolios as an approach to facilitate and improve academic advising, particularly for underserved students and in face-to-face interactions between advisors and students, are still being explored.  Join professional advisors from Duke, Notre Dame, and Stanford Universities to discuss the benefits and challenges of using ePortfolios in an advising context particularly with respect to addressing and supporting the developmental needs of students – intellectually, socially, emotionally – across their educational learning career.
