In recognition of the wonderful work collected in a student's ePortfolio at the end of the semester, a faculty member recommends his/her students for LaGuardia's prestigious ePortfolio Superstars Scholars Project. Together with the faculty member, the ePortfolio team at the Center for Teaching and Learning is delighted to offer students an exciting opportunity to join this select group of students.
Since 2005, beginning every spring and fall semester, the ePortfolio team has held workshops for students to participate in the ePortfolio Scholars Project. During the course of the project, and under the guidance of faculty and ePortfolio support staff, students work together to deepen their ePortfolio experience.
Participants develop their ePortfolios, transforming them into outstanding examples of what LaGuardia students can do. Students have the chance to attend workshops and learn new technical skills that enhance their portfolios. Just as important, these workshops help them strengthen the content of their ePortfolios, helping them to improve their writing and thinking, teaching them how to evaluate, revise, and complete an outstanding ePortfolio.
At the end of each semester, you will receive recognition as an ePortfolio Scholar and a certificate of participation. Additionally, some scholars will be selected for cash stipend and publication of their ePortfolios on the College website.
The ePortfolio Scholars Project participants will receive a certificate of completion, recognition as an ePortfolio Scholar and awards that include:
- a USB Pen/Flash Drive to Scholars who attend all the workshops and complete their ePortfolios with an evaluation of satisfactory;
- $100 to $450 Stipend to Scholars who attend all the workshops, and complete their ePortfolios with an evaluation higher than satisfactory.
- $500 Stipend to Scholars who attend all the workshops and complete their ePortfolio with an evaluation of excellent.
We look forward to working with faculty and students in this ongoing program of the ePortfolio Project at LaGuardia Community College.
