Collaboration in the Center: A Librarian and Faculty Member Explore Eportfolio Development

Claire Deal, Michael Timma


Collaboration between faculty members and librarians has the potential to enrich the work of both Communication Centers and campus libraries. A collaborative, ePortfolio development project that a library instructional technologist and rhetoric faculty member facilitated in an upper level public speaking course at a small liberal arts college demonstrates this potential. The collaborative ePortfolio project allowed students to showcase their rhetorical skills across multiple modalities: written, digital, visual -- and for this particular project -- oral.   Through a series of hands-on workshops and a reliance on the services of the Communication Center, facilitators guided students through the processes of developing their ePortfolios and incorporating videos of their own oral presentations within them.
