What is an ePortfolio?
Charting a writing assistant's progress over her/his tenure and assessing our center's effectiveness work hand in hand. A clever approach to measuring both a writing assistant and writing center's success is for you to participate in the Center for Writing Excellence's ePortfolio. Here is how it works:
- Each academic semester, submit (if possible) an essay with documented sources from a humanities course (you will be given a tutorial hour for this at the semester's conclusion of ENGL 397);
- Each academic semester, submit (if possible) an essay from a science or social science course;
- Each academic semester, submit a creative essay from a course that does not neatly fit into the two classifications above;
- Each essay submitted need not be rewritten or edited with the evaluating professor's remarks;
- Each essay could very well be used in the future as a writing sample for graduate school or for a career portfolio.
In addition to paper submission, please take time to respond to the reflective questions pertaining to your individual progress as a writing assistant. The essays and the reflective questions are vital to the writing center staff's improvement, development, and assessment. Thank you for taking part in this valuable endeavor.
