Scripps Student Emelia Douglas Shares Her Passion for Art and Plan for the Future

We love starting a new semester! Along with new syllabi, classes, and campus visits, we get to meet thousands of new students in the span of a few short weeks– all on Seelio!

We watch the gallery and activity feed as students around the country begin sharing what they’re learning and working on. And we’re thrilled when we get to meet students like Emelia, who is studying Games and Animation as a Media Major at Ohio University’s Scripps College of Communication. Reading her story and watching her portfolio come to life right in front of us made us want to learn more: how did she find her passion for animation? And how did she fit her passion into her studies?

Read on to learn more about her and see her advice for how you can pursue your passion in academics too!

Join us at OLC to Discuss Connecting Competencies to Careers with Portfolios

Are portfolios a part of your strategy for engaging, retaining and preparing students? Whether portfolios have been a part of your programs from day one or they are still something you are considering, we can help you find the best way to implement portfolios across the student lifecycle.

On October 30th at the Online Learning Consortium’s (formerly Sloan C) Annual Conference we will be presenting with the University of Michigan School of Social Work (UM-SSW) about how they have used portfolios to empower students to connect course competencies to career outcomes.

Not planning to attend OLC this year? We’d love to discuss your programs and explore how portfolios can help with student success and engagement. Contact us to schedule an informational session and receive a copy of our case study on the University of Michigan School of Social Work’s approach to connecting competencies to career outcomes with portfolios.
