Purdue University and Portfolium have partnered up to showcase ePortfolios to its 40,000 students and 3,055 faculty. The university chose Portfolium for its platform so students can use it to track, share, and comment on their learning relative to their leadership and professional development for career readiness.
Purdue’s LPDI, or Leadership and Professional Development Initiative track the learning outcomes connected to a plethora of curricular and co-curricular activities. With this platform, the students will be able to display and reflect on what they learn using Portfolium.
“We chose Portfolium because it had the most user-friendly design and functionality towards career readiness,” said James R. Hintz, Director of Leadership and Professional Development Initiative at Purdue University, “along with its capability to connect with various other products our students use.”
LPDI’s objective is to prepare students for career-oriented growth by translating experiences into better job placement and advancement opportunities. Portfolium’s unique assessment, ePortfolio, TalentMatch™ system and full integration with existing student resources (Blackboard, Simplicity, Passport) will create a digital ecosystem intuitive to every student and improve the way they reflect on their learning.
Vice President Academic Partnerships at Portfolium, Troy Markowitz comments on the importance that the student ePortfolio evolves from digital repository to a more interactive network.
He says that since the beginning, the goal has always been to provide students with the ability to better their learning with opportunities in the professional fields.
