ePortfolios to showcase your accomplishments
ePortfolios allow you to integrate your classroom learning with all the other important learning experiences you’ve had at SCU, whether in internships, student clubs, service learning, or Study Abroad. This gives your audience (advisers, prospective employers or graduate schools, family, or peers) a much deeper sense of your SCU experience.
ePortfolios created for a course or major/program
Faculty might ask you to create an ePortfolio as a part of your class experience. In this type of ePortfolio, you would save your work and possibly engage in reflections about your learning in a course. At the conclusion of a course, you may choose to share your work more broadly, whereas during the course, it may be available only to the faculty member and/or other classmates.
In this next type of ePortfolio, a student is asked to submit work to an ePortfolio that provides insights into the learning taking place within one’s major or in an area of the Core Curriculum. Students will often provide a little background on themselves and include work that shows how their work meets the learning outcomes of their major or Core requirement. Once completed, students have a record of their accomplishments and their reflections on their growth as learners in a particular discipline. In addition, faculty for the program or Core requirement are able to draw upon a body of student work that can be used in assessments of student learning and to help programs improve.
As you’ll see one of these ePortfolios is still under development (which gives a good glimpse of the process of creating an ePortfolio); while the other offers the final version.
