Georgia College Partners With Portfolium For GenEd Assessment and HIPs

Portfolium will provide ePortfolios and assessment to 7,000 Georgia College students and faculty to expand student engagement, redesign general education assessment, and utilize ePortfolios to collect and assess competency through high impact practices (HIPs).

 

As partners, Portfolium will lead Georgia College through their upcoming Georgia College Journeys program, an initiative created to expand course offerings of HIPs, as well as the opportunity for students to participate and reflect following their adoption. The complete 4-year Georgia College undergraduate curriculum will also be redesigned to align with the Association of American Colleges & Universities’ (AAC&U) Essential Learning Outcomes, a standardized set of student learning outcomes (SLO) as outlined by the AAC&U.

Using Portfolium’s Student Success Network to support their high-impact practices, Georgia College students will gain the ability to showcase and reflect on their curricular and co-curricular work. Through evidence-based assessment, these learning artifacts can then be translated as career-ready skills in a digital marketplace of internships and jobs requiring those same competencies.

 

As a result of Portfolium’s intuitive user interface and seamless integration with the university’s current learning management system (LMS), Desire2Learn, Georgia College will also be able to launch campuswide with minimal student and faculty training. Faculty and administration will also benefit from Portfolium’s user-friendly assessment software, customizable rubrics with multiple learning outcomes, curriculum mapping and easy-one click reporting.

 

Portfolium’s lifelong learning ePortfolio platform is free for students to carry evidence of their achievements and skills throughout the entire student lifecycle and beyond as alumni. As part of the student success network, employers will able to match student’s evidence of skills directly to their desired job criteria, enabling them to increase diversity in the workplace and for students to see direct value of their degree and program.

 

“We at Portfolium are more than proud to be partnering with Georgia College to help expand the use of ePortfolios as a high-impact practice, as well as provide faculty and staff with the customizable software needed to efficiently redevelop campuswide program assessment,” said Troy Markowitz, Vice President of Partnerships at Portfolium.
