Why an ePortfolio?
Simply put, an ePortfolio is a collection of work, in an electronic format, that showcases learning and creativity over time.
Accordinding to "Falling Short? College Learning and Career Success: Selected Findings from Online Surveys of Employers and College Students Conducted on Behalf of the Association of American Colleges & Universities," by Hart Research Associate:
"80% of employers say that it would be very (36%) or fairly (44%) useful to be able to see an electronic portfolio of student work that summarizes and demonstrates a candidate’s accomplishments in key skill and knowledge areas (e.g. effective communication, knowledge in their field, applied skills, evidence-based reasoning, and ethical decision-making). "
Use your ePortfolio to share your work with your current instructors and with your future employers!
