Should health informatics students create online portfolios? – a study

Health informatics students at Indiana University (USA) are exploring the issue of whether they should create professional online profiles and portfolios to use when entering the workforce.  Some teachers, to use one example, routinely build CD-ROM and/or paper-based portfolios to share with potential employers; portfolios are also important to arts and new media students.  Should informatics students create similar compilations of their work?  Do employers who hire informatics graduates look for or value portfolios?

They have developed a short survey about online portfolios and profiles.  The survey will take approximately 20-30 minutes to complete, and it asks questions about several sample profiles.

Use the following link to complete the survey:

The survey will be online until August 15. For any questions, contact Brian Dixon, Health Informatics PhD Student, Indiana University email: bdixon[at]
