Reap the benefits of integrating Career Connect ePortfolio
A Career Connect activity offers students an opportunity to engage in real-life experiences in curricular and/or co-curricular settings. Every UNT student already has access to a wide range of these existing activities including internships, volunteer work, research projects, study abroad trips, etc. With Career Connect, as students complete these experiential activities, important skills like communication, teamwork, and critical thinking can be evaluated. Additionally, students are able to integrate the work with their other experiences by reflecting and identifying the skills they build as a result of these activities- all to prepare them with marketable skills for careers and graduate degrees.
If you answered yes to any of the above questions, reach out to us and let us know. We are available to discuss how to offer your students and an opportunity to showcase the valuable work and skills they are gaining through your course by having them include it in the UNT ePortfolio, or even better (and more exciting for the student), getting badged for their skills.
To learn more, share an idea, or understand more about the ePortfolio, contact the Career Connect Faculty and Staff Development Coordinator, Meena Naik, firstname.lastname@example.org or complete the project idea form.
What resources can I access?
What can get badged?
Any assignment or course requirement that includes all of the following can allow a student to get badged in one of the Career Connect skill areas:
When students accumulate these badges across their academic career, it allows them to gain a credential that could appear on a proposed digital "transcript". This credential achievement would have a direct link to your class as well as the other projects that got them to this point. Learn more about badging here.
