Electronic portfolios are becoming mainstream, emerging as a field of practice with theoretical underpinnings and scholarly research. In addition to providing a means for students to represent and demonstrate their learning, ePortfolios are associated with a set of powerful teaching and learning practices. When these practices are effectively deployed, ePortfolios support active learning, student engagement, reflection, integration of learning across the curriculum and co-curriculum, development of academic and professional identity, and meaningful assessment of student learning across degree and co-curricular programs. This workshop will introduce ePortfolio practice in the context of pedagogy, assessment, and student development in higher education. Come with questions and leave with ideas and resources available to support your own teaching and learning practices.
