Improving Graduate Student Advising With an e-Portfolio

Improving Graduate Student Advising With an e-Portfolio

In this session, the presenter will describe how a Faculty Learning Community (FLC) is developing an ePortfolio to facilitate graduate student advising. Poor graduate student advising has been shown to be a leading cause of student drop-out and lengthy time-to-completion. During 2006-2007, members of two FLCs investigated graduate advising and conducted a survey of graduate students and graduate faculty members/advisors. Members now are working with individual academic programs and students to develop Learning Matrices to create a graduate student ePortfolio using Sakai. This session will provide the background (including challenges) of the development of their work.
