UNCW ePortfolio

Reflect, Connect, Integrate  

ePortfolios allow students to reflect, connect, and integrate learning across courses, disciplines, and semesters.

They can document activities (in and out of the classroom), upload work they are proud of, and reflect on who they are becoming as a scholar and a person.

They can copy ePortfolios, tailoring them to specific audiences. They can create collaborative ePortfolios for group work, which can then be shared to the rest of the class or even the public.

They can be creative, considering their ePortfolio a space for reflecting on what they are learning and skills they are building, for connecting ideas and interests from their academic and co-curricular activities, and for integrating them in their ePortfolio.

Any faculty and staff at UNCW can create their own e-Portfolios, which could be professional websites, free of charge. Here is an example of what you could create in a few hours.

University Studies is partnering with the Career Center and other units across campus in this ePortfolio initiative. Read more about the professional benefits of an ePortfolio on the Career Center's webpage: https://uncw.edu/career/portfolios.html

Fall 2017 Pilot

We will be piloting ePortfolios in over 40 sections of First Year Seminar and Composition, but any faculty, staff, or student who would like to create an ePortfolio is welcome to do so! Below you will find videos explaining how to create ePortfolios (using the Faculty Template and Student Template), and how to set up Digication in Blackboard.
