Seelio at West Virginia University’s Department of Communication Studies

In the spring of 2013, we met Brittany Swope, a student from West Virginia University, who was building a great portfolio on Seelio. We messaged her to compliment her work and soon we were talking with her professor, Andrea Weber. It didn’t take long to see that WVU’s Department of Communication Studies was committed to helping students capture their classroom learning to demonstrate how it is preparing them for their future.

Later that fall, we launched an official partnership with the Department of Communication Studies to embed Seelio directly into cornerstone classes to enable students to begin capturing competencies from day one of their college experience. Students began creating their portfolio with assignments and extracurricular activities, tagging their experiences with the core competencies of the Communication Studies program.

We’ve since expanded to additional courses and also host a showcase of WVU Communication Studies Alumni that students can use to connect with alumni for mentorship opportunities.

We love working with the talented faculty and students at WVU and we’re excited to continue to help students capture their learning outcomes and stand out in their job search!

Just the other week, we invited Dr. Lynn Wooten, the Associate Dean of Undergraduate Programs at University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business, to kick off our Seelio team retreat with her perspective on learning portfolios.

She has been integrating portfolios into coursework at the Ross School of Business for the past few years as a way to help students take knowledge from tacit (something they learn in the classroom) to explicit (something they can apply in real life).
