How to Back Up Your E Portfolio
The e-portfolio will also serve as an invaluable tool for the academic advisor and the Counseling Program members as they seek to assess your developmental progress and academic accomplishments.
A portfolio is a representation of you and your accomplishments as a counselor in training. Consequently, regular and careful updating is recommended.
Completion of an e-portfolio is a requirement of the Counseling Program for graduation from Messiah College. What follows is a list of items typically placed in a professional portfolio. Items 1-5 are required; those in 6-10 are recommended.
Many of the items needed for the e-portfolio require signatures. For these signatures, we accept faxed, scanned, original, or electronic signatures. If the site supervisor chooses to use an electronic signature, we require that he or she also email the form directly to the Practicum and Internship Coordinator.
