Thank you to all the First Year Mentors (FYMs) who supported this event and for all those who submitted entries.
This contest was sponsored by the Office of New Student Programs, the College of Arts and Sciences, and the Office of the Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The Core Pathways represent different ways in which to give shape and trajectory to students' experiences at Fairfield, both in and out of the classroom. Through reflecting on the Pathways in a way that incorporates interests, passions, and academic goals, students discover a coherent path of learning, exploration, discernment, and avocation.
The ePortfolio is an electronic portfolio venue within which student are able to present through words, pictures, videos, assignments or projects - or other artifacts and mementoes from the Fairfield experience - what they have come to understand within a given year, and eventually in the accumulation of years at Fairfield University. In an ePortfolio, it is through the reflective work of collecting, reflecting, and connecting all these educational moments and artifacts that students have an opportunity to realize Fairfield University's promise of an integrative educational experience.
The ePortfolio Core Pathways contest was launched to engage first-year students in a publicly viewable formative reflection about the ways in which their experiences in and outside of the classroom - engaged one of the six Core Pathways to integrative learning. Contest entries were judged on portfolio inclusion of academic and co-curricular artifacts, integrated use of media, and quality of reflection about what the core pathway of choice means.
