Digication ePortfolio training for ASU Faculty
Thursday, November 17, 2016 from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM (MST)
What is an ePortfolio?
An ePortfolio is a digital archive that represents student work over time through a broad range of artifacts. A typical student ePortfolio at ASU might include submitted course papers and projects representing a range of media types, independent research, learning goals, reflections on assignments, works-in-progress, ideas for future scholarship, and links to relevant resources. An ePortfolio can function as an interactive resume to share with prospective employers, a venue for sharing academic work with an instructor, mentor, or family member, as a tool for inviting collaboration and feedback, or as a private record of academic progress.
Traditionally, ePortfolios have been adopted in teaching and learning to provide a space for students to collect their work and reflect on the connections visible to them. At their most basic, students might use an ePortfolio to market their own personal brand but an ePortfolio reaches its potential when used to build complex, detailed reflections on scholarly achievements and goals. This reflection can take place textually, visually, or multimodally.
What is the purpose and value of an ePortfolio?
Not only do ePortfolios serve a practical purpose by allowing students to collect, archive, and publish their work, they also help students to draw connections among different projects and to integrate topics and themes across disciplines and semesters. In selecting and organizing work to include in an ePortfolio, students are encouraged to envision the “big picture” of their academic journeys and to reflect on their overall goals and accomplishments. ePortfolios serve both a personal and a public function, helping students to synthesize work for themselves and allowing them to share that work with others. ePortfolios make learning visible.
