Using EPortfolios in Your Curriculum: Help Your Students Demonstrate Their Learning

Weber State University’s ePortfolios help students make connections between classroom accomplishments and future job opportunities.

Through ePortfolios, students can demonstrate their abilities and visually communicate their professional value to potential employers. You can help students create an ePortfolio through Portfolium, a digital portfolio platform, to showcase the skills they learn in your courses.

By adopting ePortfolios in your classroom, you’ll provide an opportunity for students to:

  • Reflect on their education
  • Curate and display artifacts tied to their learning while engaging in a high-impact educational practice that solidifies meaning through personal investment

Getting Started:

To begin implementing ePortfolios, consider which assignments exemplify the skills students gain from your courses. As you help students utilize ePortfolios, our team is here to help you.

  The integration of the Portfolium Network by faculty and students in our graduate nursing programs was well worth the effort. Portfolium provides us with a much-needed electronic portfolio to curate student artifacts such as community-engaged learning, signature assignments, student projects, and achievements. At our DNP accreditation visit, the peer evaluators were very impressed at the quality of student ePortfolios, which clearly demonstrated their achievement of student-learning outcomes, nursing competencies, and program outcomes. Our graduates now have a repository to help showcase their skills and accomplishments at WSU to current or potential employers."
