Winners announced in spring portfolio contest
May 19, 2009
KALAMAZOO--Five Western Michigan University students have been named winners of the University's sixth electronic portfolio contest.
2009 portfolio contest winners
Electronic portfolios can include such information as resumes, samples of class assignments and photos of students at work on a project. Students can make them available to prospective employers, friends, family or whomever they want, anywhere in the world. They may create them for a class, to meet requirements of an overall department program or just for fun.
The contest was sponsored by the Office of Institutional Effectiveness. Examples of student-created portfolios were solicited during the spring semester, and a team of reviewers from WMU judged the entries. Portfolios were judged according to the students' use of iWebfolio software to present personal, professional and academic accomplishments electronically. The five winners will each receive a cash award.
