As part of the Senior-Year Experience at Kennesaw State University, an institutional elective capstone course entitled KSU 4401: Senior Seminar was created to assist students in the transition to post-university life. In the course, college seniors create reflective and best of show ePortfolios (electronic portfolios) which helps them to honor, understand, and connect their learning from self to global society. This process is called folio thinking which develops the life-long learning habit of archiving, assessing, and sharing their learning with societal stakeholders in the areas of citizenship, community, and career. Folio thinking acts as a kaleidoscopic process which leads to a deeper view of understanding learning and develops a strategy for archiving, reflecting, and digitally sharing life-long learning for the empowerment of college seniors and their emerging roles as global citizens. The folio thinking process prepares students for life-long continued career development which demands an entrepreneurial approach of managing one’s own progress as a knowledge worker in the 21st century. In our presentation we will share the academic approaches to creating ePortfolios as passports to global citizenship by utilizing the folio thinking process for college seniors.
