The ePorfolio Program at St. John’s University is designed to support students, faculty, and staff in the process of creating dynamic, engaging ePorfolios as a tool for teaching, learning, reflection, transformation, archives of learning, and assessment. Read additional information about where to begin, if you haven’t already.
ePortfolios can be used by advisors to track students’ academic progress, guide students’ professional interests, and determine as well as encourage students’ choices in study abroad programs. For advisors, ePortfolios can be a significant and visible illustration of a SJU undergraduate’s maturation during his or her years at the University. For graduate students, ePortfolios could document students’ personal development plans in the arenas of academics, research, and so forth. In short, ePortfolios will improve student learning, make that learning visible to students, foster reflective learning, and showcase learning to personal and professional communities.
The ePortfolio and University Assessment:
In The School of Education our students normally use ePorfolios for: Teaching Portfolios.
Like other professionals, teachers need evidence of their growth and achievement over time. The professional portfolio is a vehicle for collecting and presenting that evidence. For many of us, it's just practicing what we preach. We encourage our students to select examples of their work over time to demonstrate how much they've learned, and we must do the same. Portfolios allow us to become reflective about what it is we do. And they allow us to document the practices we'd like to preserve and even pass on to others.
