The Learning Benefits of ePortfolios

What started as an efficiency exercise lead to one focused on great learning benefits for students. We were initially attracted ePortfolios because of the ease of management. Four years later, we have discovered the learning benefits of them when they allow students to focus on the learning process.Through reflection and metacognition, students are learning how to learn and are able to address learning difficulties through this ongoing self-assessment.

Co-Curricular ePortfolios for Health Sciences

We piloted a co-curricular ePortfolio with a self-reflective component for students to show how participation in student associations, advocacy, research, community service, service learning, and wellness activities contributed to leadership, communication skills, and professionalism. The project promoted learning and demonstrated contribution to the public good in a visible, compelling way.
