Georgetown University School of Medicine Adopts Seelio for its Students

Georgetown School of Medicine Seelio Banner

ANN ARBOR, MICH. (November 18, 2015) – Georgetown University School of Medicine has selected Seelio by Keypath Education as an integrative learning and career preparation tool for its students.

With a long history of preparing students to seek knowledge in service of the community, Georgetown University places 90 percent of its medical students into one of their top three residency choices each year. Students will now have access to Seelio throughout their learning experience to track and document learning outcomes.

“We want to determine if this tool will assist students in forming their professional identity, integrating learning that occurs in and outside of the classroom, and connecting in a new way with advisors throughout their journey as medical professionals,” said Dr. Maria Marquez, assistant dean for reflection and assessment, Georgetown University School of Medicine.

All first-year students will be introduced to Seelio in 2016, with the opportunity to bring Seelio to more students based on the initial launch period’s success.

Recognizing reflective practice as imperative for integrative learning, Georgetown University School of Medicine faculty and administrators are working with Seelio’s service team to identify touch points throughout the student experience where students will be prompted to document and connect key learning experiences. Students will record these learning experiences in professional profiles as members of groups, or learning families, where they will receive continual feedback from peers and faculty. With evidence of student learning on Seelio, faculty can now better track learning outcomes and advise students on a more meaningful, holistic level.

As students and faculty capture key learning experiences on Seelio, Georgetown University School of Medicine will have galleries of student work for each learning family to demonstrate student learning outcomes.

“We’re excited to work with Georgetown University School of Medicine as it empowers students to reflect on key learning experiences throughout their journey to become leading medical professionals,” said Moses Lee, co-founder of Seelio and group president at Keypath Education.

Purdue University Calumet Announces Partnership with Seelio

Purdue Calumet on Seelio

Career-minded Purdue University Calumet students intent on impressing prospective employers with the fruits of their Purdue education will be able to do so in a more revealing and accessible manner, thanks to a new high tech resource that goes beyond the traditional résumé.

Purdue Calumet announced this morning that it has contracted with Seelio to enable students to showcase their academic accomplishments and provide immediate access to projects and publications via multi-media online portfolios. Essentially, students will be able to use their portfolio to readily demonstrate successful hands-on learning.

With experiential learning a requirement of all Purdue Calumet undergraduates, the opportunity for students to present evidence of related learning they have applied effectively in a real world environment is important, according to Peggy Gerard, Purdue Calumet vice chancellor for academic affairs and provost.

Portfolio of successful learning

“Students who develop an online portfolio can distinguish themselves by capturing evidence of their successful learning,” she said. “Within a competitive job market, students can use such a portfolio effectively during an interview to show employers in an easy to access manner real examples of their educational achievements and application.”

Since September 2014, students in experiential learning courses have been using Seelio to document learning and bring their skills to life with rich, digital portfolios. More than 300 students in disciplines from nursing to engineering have created 1,400+ pieces of content on Seelio, showcasing the unique aspects of experiential learning at Purdue Calumet.

In addition to making it easier for students to capture in-class learning, Purdue Calumet also has leveraged Seelio to connect students with regional industry partners at university events like Technology Day and gatherings of academic and industry leaders.

Presenting to prospective employers

Junior Matthew Dombrowski was offered the opportunity to present his portfolio to 14 industry leaders at the College of Technology’s Dean’s Executive Council meeting last fall.

“The opportunity to actually show future employers my work instead of trying to explain it to them on a résumé is truly amazing,” Dombrowski said. “It really gives people in fields like mine the chance to showcase their best work and actually show people what they are capable of doing.”

Going forward, students in Purdue Calumet’s College of Business; College of Engineering, Mathematics and Science; College of Technology; College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences; and Honors College will have access to Seelio’s technology and services. Opportunities are expected to expand to additional students over the next four years.

Connecting learning experiences with learning objectives

Purdue Calumet also will be able to collect students’ learning experiences and map them against learning objectives to better understand how curricula of various programs are preparing students to be successful.

Seelio CEO and Cofounder Moses Lee said, “We know how important it is to prepare students for success. That’s why we’re excited to partner with Purdue Calumet so students across campus can prepare for their careers from day one and graduate with the ability to present and showcase their important experiential learning.”
