2012-2013 ePortfolio Student Showcase Now Live!

SPS is delighted to present our 2012-2013 ePortfolio Student Showcase! The showcase, which is hosted on an SPS ePortfolio site, highlights student work in individual courses, programs, and capstone projects at both the bachelors and masters level.

ePortfolio provides a window into our students’ lives: who they are and who they aspire to be. While reviewing nominations to this year’s showcase, we were delighted to learn that we have a published children’s book author and a video/film/TV producer enrolled in our programs.digital badge

Thanks to all of the instructors who nominated students for inclusion in the showcase and to the ePortfolio Team for encouraging students to self-nominate. This year we were able to award $100 Amazon gift cards to students whose ePortfolios were selected for inclusion in the showcase as well as digital badges to display on their ePortfolios.

If you have a student who is interested in submitting their ePortfolio for an opportunity to be selected as one of the “Featured Studies ePortfolios,” they still have plenty of time to do so – the nomination deadline for next year’s showcase is May 24, 2014.

Feel free to browse the showcase website or visit the featured ePortfolios directly below:
