The ePortfolio Showcase is a yearly celebration of student and teacher portfolios presented through Digication. Teachers nominate their students, and a committee of Writing Programs teachers judges the nominated portfolios and selects 12 winning student portfolios to be awarded prizes. Teachers are also encouraged to submit their teaching portfolios in this contest. For questions, please email Adelheid Thieme, Associate Director of Writing Programs, at email@example.com.
In 2019, for the second time, the ePortfolio Showcase was part of the Spring Convocation. As part of the plenary session, Fred Corey, Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, gave a presentation on Academic Status Reports, and Roumen Bezergianov, LPC, Senior Clinician, ASU Counseling Services, offered helpful information about resources for assisting students with behavioral concerns. The plenary session was followed by morning and afternoon breakout sessions ranging from workshops on Canvas to speed-sharing assignments and sharing of impactful writing by teachers and students (see Writing Programs Spring Convocation Program).
Two of the morning breakout sessions focused on the demonstration and discussion of winning student and teacher portfolios. Krista Ratcliffe, Chair of the English Department, and Shirley Rose, Director of Writing Programs, then presented the awards to the authors of the winning portfolios. Evaluations of the portfolios as well as excerpts from the winning portfolios can be accessed in the PowerPoint presentation 2019 ePortfolio Showcase.
Please select the links below to gain full access to the winning entries of the 2019, 2018, 2017, and 2016 ePortfolio Showcase for both student and teacher portfolios:
