On Tuesdays so far we’ve used our time to talk about the week’s Activity, and to look at some of the strong Activities from the week before. Now that we’ve completed our Activities for Fall ’14 we can use the last Tuesdays to let you optionally present your ePortfolio for extra credit. A strong presentation of your ePortfolio is worth up to +30 EC.
NOTE: You can only present YOUR EPORTFOLIO — that is, you CAN NOT show a website of Art110 work. We want to see your Aerospace Engineering or Nursing or Marine Biology or Fashion Merchandising website. And yes, you can show ePortfolios for things other than your major, like your Band, your Zine, your Classic Car Restoration, your Cosplay, your Sports Blog, etc etc. Most of the time these “hobbies” are just that, extra things in life that aren’t your “career.” But sometimes they can overlap. Maybe that hiring manager at that awesome Aerospace Engineering Firm likes you because they’re impressed with the detail of your Car Website. And even though an activity like Cosplay is mostly lighthearted fun, people like Yaya Han have turned it into a full-time income.
Signups will be open through 1pm this Thursday, Nov 20th.

You really liked Painting, Plaster Casting, and Your Own Choice. You really disliked Kickstarter, CFID, and vlogging. I can’t promise I’ll cancel all 3 of those projects for next semester, but I do promise to cancel at least 1 of them, maybe more. We’ll discuss it in class today.
