New Student ePortfolio Assignment
Your ePortfolio is a place for you to gather the materials and evidence of accomplishments from your entire academic career at Sweet Briar. It’s also a place for you to reflect. Your ePortfolio is the place where you put together the pieces of your academic and co-curricular life that tell your story of what it means to be a Sweet Briar woman. Your ePortfolio exists not only for academic purposes, but should also serve as a creative outlet, helping you to make connections both as a student and as an alum.
Your assignment is to:
Think about where you are right now, both actually and metaphorically. Consider your expectations, hopes, anxieties, and questions in regard to your life at Sweet Briar.
Take a look at the Sweet Briar YouTube channel:
and the Sweet Briar Flickr feed:
Create a new section in your ePortfolio, and title it “ePortfolio Assignment 2013.”
Choose a photo or video from the Sweet Briar YouTube channel or Flickr feed that speaks to you in some way, and embed that image or video in a Rich Text Module in this new section. Write about why you chose that particular image/video, and what connects you to Sweet Briar at this particular moment. Expand on the way in which you might envision your growth (personal and/or academic) at Sweet Briar over the course of the coming year or the next four. What do you expect here? What are your fears or hopes?
Keep in mind that these reflections and connections can just be a creative snapshot of one moment and a vision of your potential future at Sweet Briar; they are not going to be graded or judged in any way, though they may be seen by your advisor and may be used as a substitute for your advising essay.
Submit this assignment to the ePortfolio Class: Fall 2013 course by Aug. 1.
