  • a. Build Infrastructure: Committee discussed the make-up of the coordinating board and its function.
    • i. The coordination board will be a policy-minded and implementation committee that will consist of representatives from departments that are currently interested in ePortfolios. The goal of the board will be to grow interest in career ePortfolios, to assist with the implementation of the QEP, work with the director of the Career ePortfolio program, have a role in the assessment of the project and make sure the project supports the student learning goals of the QEP.
  • b. The committee decided that the position that will run the Career ePortfolio Project will be a Director since this position will have to manage a budget.
  • c. Create the presentation place:  The committee discussed how to support the individual departmental needs. The QEP budget needs to provide some level of equipment support to departments and to provide for future expansion of the MRDL.

The committee discussed rewriting the infrastructure portion of the Plan (drat) to list the items of infrastructure and escribe where the needs will be fulfilled.

Discussion over creating a group of departments/programs that will be supportive of the Career ePortfolios, i.e., Career Center,  Biggio, etc.

The committee discussed how to determine a budget to support program growth.  The Committee decided on a case study approach, where a budget to bringing a department from a paper portfolio to the ePortfolio will be outlined.

C. Relihan was tasked to talk to N. Bernard (Career Center) and   J. Groccia  (Biggio Center) to determine the distance learning component of the support structure.

L. Lock will continue to work on the literature review.
