Tuesday, March 19 | 2:45PM–4:15PM ET | West Prefunction- Poster09
Session Type: Poster Session
Delivery Format: Poster Session
The first year of college can be an overwhelming challenge for many students. As part of a pilot program to help create a strong foundation for academic success titled First-Year Experience, e-portfolios were leveraged as a reflection and collection tool by students. We will provide an overview of the program and the training and support model developed, as well as key takeaways from the pilot from the IT perspective.

Outcomes: Explore the benefits of e-portfolios in student reflection and demonstration * Learn how e-portfolios complement a first-year experience program * Compare a train-the-trainer vs. customized-training resources support model
