E-Portfolios: From Academia To The Workplace -- InformationWeek

E-Portfolios: From Academia To The Workplace -- InformationWeek | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"E-portfolios are becoming an increasingly important way for students to show what they know. But their value doesn't end after graduation.
E-portfolios, which can be created in many different ways -- from simple blogging platforms to specifically designed software and services -- can help transition students from academia to different jobs and roles in the workplace. It's this ability to trace a user's evolution from academic to professional and beyond that led Safiya Noble, a professor at the University of Illinois, to choose Pathbrite as a learning and representation tool for her students"

ghbrett's insight:

This article demonstrates how the use of digital or online learning tools and resources are integrating into the workplace and into the career of the knowledge worker. Social media sites such as Linked In ( http://linkedin.com ) and even Facebook ( http://facebook.com ) are providing resources for members to publish their "profiles" which in effect are E-portfolios.  

 

One word of caution and that is if you begin to use such a site or your own blog as an E-Portfolio remember to keep it current. That way potential employers or contacts will know what you are really doing at the moment.

7 Elements of Human Centric IT [Infographic]

7 Elements of  Human Centric IT [Infographic] | Distance Ed Archive | Scoop.it

"Government IT leaders and knowledge workers are faced with the task to make smarter decisions at faster speeds and with fewer resources. As the government IT landscape continues to change, agencies must focus on human-centric IT solutions to improve their business functions. This means crafting IT systems that connect people to process to transform service delivery.

GovLoop has partnered with Pegasystems to develop the infographic below. The infographic, Defining Human-Centric IT,  will walk you through this new model of governance and highlight the benefits of a human-centric design. This is the way forward for government and is rapidly changing the role of the public sector employee and leading to improved services for citizens." from source: http://www.govloop.com

ghbrett's insight:

This page points to a somewhat interactive infographic about 7  elements of human centric information technologies. While the target here is government, it is a model that can apply to any enterprise whether corporate or academic. The Traditionalists are those who do business as usual. Or else they are too busy being either time or financially constrained to try anything out of the track (rut) already planned. Whereas the Transformers are calculated risk takers who focus on the needs of their members/clients/audience. They adapt to and adopt new policies as well as new technologies. These changes will lead to further changes as they evaluate and move forward with their successes.

What I like about this infographic is that it presents a parallel viewpoint of the processes each culture uses for comparison. For example stage one: Traditionalist - "The Current Model leads to loss, error, and duplication; while the Transformer's tip 1 is to Think Big, Start Small. And so one.

Again consider this chart as a metaphor or model for your agency or enterprise. In some cases it is signing to the choir of transformers, on the other hand it may provide the Transformer guidance in approaching a Traditionalist Management process.
