Join Us at the 2015 Forum on digital learning and eportfolios
In just a few short weeks we’ll be gathering with educators around the country to discuss strategies and methods for using ePortfolios to advance student success in higher education at the 2015 Forum on Digital Learning and ePortfolios. We’re delighted to be sponsoring a roundtable discussion at the forum’s keynote luncheon to discuss best practices for ePortfolios across programs and contexts.
We’re also pleased to be presenting with Gail Luera, Ph.D., an associate professor of science education at University of Michigan – Dearborn. Joining her will be Tiffany Marra, Ph.D., Seelio’s vice president of academics and services. Together they will share insights from their years of experience using ePortfolios at the University of Michigan as a pathfinder for students throughout their educational experience.
We hope you can join us for what we expect to be fruitful conversations about how we as educators can support student success with ePortfolios. Learn more in our flyer below or please reach out to schedule time to meet with one of our experts.

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.
October 30, 2014 – 1:30pm | Concurrent Session 8 | Location: Northern Hemisphere E3
Track: Technology and Emerging Learning Environments
Join us to assess your program’s use of learning outcomes and identify ways to use portfolios to measure learning outcomes and improve students’ professional development.

We asked Pauline Bary Khan, Princeton Review Top 300 Professor and the Director of Michigan Engineering’s Program in Technical Communication, to share about her experience with Seelio in her classes.
Earlier this year she used Seelio with students in her senior-level Technical Communication course and her first-year Engineering 100 course. Below she shares how students responded and why she believes it’s important for students to begin capturing their educational experience in a portfolio from day one.
