Exploring the ePortfolio

Exploring the ePortfolio in Canvas a webinar by Gail A. Ryder 2/12/18

What is an ePortfolio? . . . collection of student work that demonstrates achievement or improvement (Stiggins, 1994)

a portfolio is a collection of evidence that is gathered together to show a persons learning journey over time and to demonstrate their abilities (Butler, 2006) It may include essays, posters, photographs, videos, artwork,

reflections, study guides, critical reviews, references listings, research etc.. They may also capture other aspects of students community service, special projects, work/study, internships,

eVolved definition a purposeful collection of student work that illustrates efforts, progress, and achievement in

one or more areas [over time]. The collection must include: student participation in selecting contents, the criteria for selection, the criteria for judging merit, and evidence of selfreflection

(The Northwest Evaluation Association cited in Barret 2005)

Characteristics of the ePortfolio ePortfolios generate as well as document learning They provide an opportunity and virtual space for students to critically assess their academic work, to

reflect on the work and make connections to other courses and concepts ePortfolios grew out of a learning theory known as social constructivism

My samples will each include items across modules of a single course
