Student ePortfolios

"Life (Leadership) is about the jouney not the destination": Dori Gaudet's e-portfolio was her capstone project in the MSW Leadership in the HumanServices specialization.

Sowing Seeds of Change: Sarada Eastman - Seeds of change is organized around narrative introductory text and case-studies presented as photo essays. The narrative is based on reflections from my Master's of Social Work (M.S.W.) program at the University of Calgary, and my internship placements during 2009 and 2010. The narrative links the practice of social work with personal experience.

Tiffany McCabe: This year a friend recommended a book, A Fine Balance by Rohinton Mistry. Although this book is fictional; school, family, friends, social work, and recreation, were put into perspective for me from this book.  I have heard the saying its a fine balance or walking a fine line, many times before reading this book, but the story Mistry puts together animates this saying to be really meaningful. Mistrys book is about resilience, hope, diversity, change, development, social justice, family, spirit, breaking through barriers, and finding life between two extremes. In a different context, I find myself writing my own story with the same themes as well as hearing other peoples story relating to finding a fine balance.

Shellyza Murji - This ePortfolio was created to provide an opportunity to take a glimpse into my life, as I prepare to go out into the world as a practising social worker.  The portfolio explores various aspects and experiences within my life that have contributed to shaping my identity, and career aspirations.
