Why ePortfolio?

It tells the story of your development as a learner. What makes it

unique? It is your story! Although other students take the same courses

and have similar experiences, no one else interprets experience like

you. Only you can tell the story and offer evidence to support your

perspective. Your selection and analysis of what goes into the ePortfolio leads to

new learning.

 

An ePortfolio is a web-based collection of a student's best college

work that includes reflective writing to provide personal and academic

contexts for the work. The student decides on a theme that can be supported by the work in the ePortfolio. Rather than being organized around a course or a curriculum, the ePortfolio is organized around the individual's learning theme. Although students use the same organization, their theme, woven throughout the ePortfolio, individualizes their experience and displays their uniqueness in a professional manner. Design and content choices are up to the student, as long

as the following components are included and meet the requirements:

  • Welcome with theme or main, organizing idea

  • Personal introduction

  • Short-term and long-term learning goals

  • Collection of “Showcase Artifacts” and reflections to highlight mastery  of SPCC’s General Education Core Skills

  • Collection of “Showcase Artifacts” and reflections to highlight mastery of a student’s major or program outcomes (not required by all programs)

  • Additional educational experiences page

  • Resume

  • Artifact Collection (a place to collect artifacts)  

 

Your ACA 122 instructor will get you started! Then, you can begin saving artifacts to choose from in 

HUM 115. In HUM 115, your instructor will provide the rest of the completion process. The most important person is you! Save your artifacts and think about what you are learning as you complete your program. Remember, this is your story and no one knows it better than you do.

The ePortfolio reflects SPCC’s commitment to promote and celebrate learning as the process that changes and improves lives. For students, the ePortfolio provides both a unique learning opportunity based on reflection and self-criticism to showcase personal and academic achievement to faculty, family, friends, transfer institutions, scholarship committees, and potential employers.
