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.
