E-Portfolio: What is it? Come to an informational session to find out!!!
Are you graduating in December or May? Maybe you just want more information about graduation requirements for the LIS program. Here is your opportunity…
ALISS will be hosting two sessions to inform students about the e-portfolio, which is a requirement you have to do in order to graduate from the program. ALISS will be teaming up with Dr. Applegate to host two informational sessions on December 4 at 6:30 p.m. and December 6 at 12:30 p.m. in IT 395. Both sessions will go over what the e-portfolio is and how you can upload documents to it.
What if you can’t make either session? We will be recording at least one session for those students that can’t make it to either session. This link will be provided on ALISS’ website, Facebook page, and Twitter and I will send you an email informing you when it has been uploaded.
We hope to see you there!!!
