Course Description
Dakota State University: 2009-2010 Undergraduate Catalog
Planning, creation, and production of portfolios and other professional materials.
Course Goals
This class is designed to help students assess their own skills and career interests, compile personaldocuments, develop an effective and targeted portfolio, and enhance job interviewing skills. A
,for our purposes, is a coherent set of materials, including work samples and reflective commentary onthem, compiled by an individual to represent his or her skills, training, and work experience.
Prerequisites and Technology Skills
This class has no specific prerequisites. As part of the 300-level sequence, the expectation is thatstudents have begun to create a mature body of work from which to draw on for the creation of theirportfolio. The course might be better suited to those students nearing the completion of their degreeprograms; however, senior status is not required.Students must have a D2L account and access to a computer, a web browser, and web authoring andmultimedia software to use in the creation of the portfolio. All documents and back-up copies of assignments are the responsibility of the student.

Classroom Policies
I make no distinction between excused and unexcused absences
you are either here or you arenot. If you experience some kind of catastrophic event that will interfere with your participationin the class, please let me know as soon as possible.
Habitual tardiness will affect your final grade.
Earning high marks for attendance
participation means not only that you turn up, but thatyou are prepared. You
actively participate in discussion and in group work.
 Make-up Policy
In general,
I do not accept late work for credit 
. Nor do I allow you to make-up work that youmissed if you were absent from class.See the
Trojan Handbook 
for more specific details regarding “Student Conduct Policies and Procedures”
If I need to cancel class, I will try to post a message on D2L and send an email. Missing classes is rare for me, but if after 15 minutes I have not arrived, and there are no other signs or messages, please assumethat class is cancelled.
