Fifty-four Trinity students are invited to participate in a new, experimental curricular element in the spring semester.  Students will earn a quarter credit while meeting periodically in a group of nine students with a faculty advisor to design and build an electronic portfolio of their own academic work. Goals for the portfolio include aiding students in future job searches, graduate school applications, and developing a better understanding of learning and outcomes.  
 
Students will build an electronic portfolio of their academic work, working with a faculty portfolio advisor and a group of nine students (three first years, three sophomores, and three juniors). Students will select at least one piece of work from each class, review them with the group, and improve them when appropriate. Students will also produce an extracurricular writing specific to their class year and major. Students will be provided support in developing their portfolio for use in graduate school applications and job interviews and applications. This pilot program will help develop and evaluate future electronic portfolios programs at Trinity College.
  
Enroll in the college course COLL 199: Trinity Portfolio Pilot Program during registration week. Grading for the quarter credit course will be pass/fail.
 
NOTE: COLL 199 will be open to 18 first-year students, 18 sophomores, and 18 juniors, on a first come/first served basis. (Sorry, no seniors.)
