Exclusive ArtsOne/CAP ‘ePortfolio’ workshop!

Arts Co-op office and the Faculty of Arts ePortfolio team are offering a workshop for Arts One and CAP students interested in creating an online portfolio of their work. Drawing on examples of professional portfolios in your field, we’ll show you how to collect, curate, and describe your scholarly work for a non-academic audience – and to connect your work at UBC to any co-curricular or off-campus work.

Here’s what one UBC Arts student had to say about building her ePortfolio: https://youtu.be/hXVLVP6Y5bc

This workshop will help new and veteran builders of online portfolios to develop their professional identity online. You’ll learn:
– how types of portfolio differ
– how to contextualize your skills and experiences
– how to write for your target audience

Please set up your own portfolio with at least three examples of your work before this workshop. If you don’t already have a portfolio of your own, please use the UBC Arts Student Web Space: https://eportfolios.arts.ubc.ca/setting-up/option-a/how-to-login-to-sws/  — if you have any difficulties logging in, contact arts.eportfolios@ubc.ca

Bring a laptop computer or tablet with you to this workshop. If you don’t have a laptop, you can borrow one from the library:http://services.library.ubc.ca/computers-technology/technology-borrowing/

In addition to the 45-minute workshop, there will be open office hours for 30 minutes before and after the workshop, for anyone who wants one-on-one feedback or technical support.
