ePortfolios are digital collections of learning artifacts created by students for their courses.
Though seemingly a simplistic activity, the supported practice of folio-thinking, namely curating, organizing, reflecting, and connecting learning experiences, can capture holistic aspects of a student’s life beyond the classroom. ePortfolios can allow for integrating the personal self into the academic self for more profound, more connected learning experiences. Through frequent instructor and peer feedback and reflective opportunities, students can demonstrate their growth and development over time and better articulate their learning.
This 20-minute presentation will present and discuss contemporary research examining the use of ePortfolios to support and celebrate the whole student’s learning journey and to assess learning authentically.
