Realizing the Full Potential of ePortfolios: Expanding Beyond a Single Department
March 17, 2020
How can ePortfolios be used to enhance student learning and persistence? The evidence clearly shows they can, especially when paired with other high-impact practices or adopted campus-wide; however, realizing the full potential of ePortfolios requires effective implementation and integration. Through two campus case studies, this webinar presented proven strategies for expanding the use of ePortfolios beyond a single department. It also provided an introduction to the Institute on ePortfolios, a collaboration among AAC&U, AAEEBL, and NASPA. This institute is specifically designed to support colleges and universities that seek to expand their use of ePortfolios and to realize their full potential as a high-impact practice.
