When should I enroll?
This non-credit course certifies that a degree requirement (submission of samples of the student’s coursework) has been fulfilled by a student majoring in the B.A. in Communication Studies. As a rule, the student enrolls in COMM 4098 the final semester of his/her degree, but may enroll in the senior year and continues to enroll until graduation. Upon declaring Communication Studies as a major, the student begins a collection of projects and will choose his/her best written, oral, and media projects from a range of upper level courses.
What is an e-portfolio?
This is an electronic portfolio currently created in Blackboard Learn. Once enrolled in the course, you will have access to Learn and the documents (e.g., syllabus, instructions) to guide you through the process of creating an e-portfolio. When all requirements (artifacts) are uploaded, the portfolio will be shared with the professor.
How is the e-portfolio graded?
The portfolio is graded S for Satisfactory or I for Incomplete. Only a grade of S, certified by the professor of COMM 4098, allows for graduation.
What is the purpose of the e-portfolio?
The e-portfolio has a dual purpose. As a graduate, you will have a resume and cover letter needed for professional employment and supporting documents to illustrate proficiency in research, writing, speaking, and multimedia development. You are encouraged to add files to highlight work from your internship (scanned material), community outreach activities, and Center for Public Deliberation. What will best represent you as an individual?
Second, the e-portfolio will be used for degree assessment. Yearly evaluation of graduates in Communication Studies is integral to maintaining an excellent program to meet the needs of the 21st century global workplace. There are five learning outcomes in the current assessment plan:
