Primary Instructor:

More and more frequently, prospective graduate students, employees across fields, and artists of all kinds are expected to have an online presence. In fact, most recent online application forms have a space for entering your website URL (in many cases, an ePortfolio). But is one online portfolio as good as another? How is the internet, for good or bad, influencing professional development and self-representation? How can you be sure you’re making the most accurate and best possible impression?

In this course we will pursue the question of what makes a successful online presence — specifically, an effective ePortfolio — by reading widely (in and across fields), analyzing a variety of samples, writing frequently, and ultimately developing our own electronic portfolios. We will explore how to analyze and respond appropriately to different rhetorical situations, how to develop a distinctive and appropriate voice, and how to make a case for ourselves through thoughtful text, navigation, and design. Students will leave this course with an ePortfolio draft that they can continue to develop and re-imagine for a variety of purposes: academic, professional, and/or artistic.
