COUNSELOR EDUCATION PROGRAM -- North Carolina Central University

Final Portfolio Defense (aka "Foliotek Defense")

Your final defense will take place during your last semester in school.  For most, if not all students, this happens while you are in your final semester of Internship (CON 5390).  The defenses are usually scheduled approximately one month before the graduation ceremony.  The defense is intended to sharpen your job seeking and interviewing skills. You are asked to bring a typed copy of the Final Report on the Defense form.  For students completing multiple tracks (e.g., both Mental Health and School), please bring two copies of the Final Report form (one for each major).

Online Students

For online students, we will conduct your defense using WebEX.  You will still need to sign up for an appointment time (below).  A faculty member will send you a WebEX invitation sometime before the defense is to take place, but after you have scheduled an appointment.  

You will be able to "share" documents/pages/information by sharing your computer or device's screen - or you can IM (instant message, in WebEX, through the text chat) the web address of a website, and we will access the site on our computer and then share our screen.  Either way will work, and this is something that we can figure out once your meeting time begins.  Your document (Final Report form) should be emailed to Ms. Joyner (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) two days before your scheduled defense.
