ePortfolios are decidedly not the hottest thing in higher education. Randy Bass Peer Review 2014 11

ePortfolios: What They Are Portfolio purposeful collection + student work + reflection (Paulson, F.L. Paulson, P.R. and Meyer, 1991) ePortfolio = all of the above … + web-based + multiple formats and media + links, non-linear pathways + capacity to share with a larger audience (Polklop, 2013) 12

The technology of ePortfolios, though enabling or inhibiting, is not the crux of the “it” that makes ePortfolios effective. ePortfolios are at heart a set of pedagogies and practices that link learners to learning, curriculum to the co-curriculum, and courses and programs to institutional outcomes. - Randy Bass, Peer Review Winter 2014 “The Next Whole Thing in Higher Education” 13

Student Voices MIKE W. “I am very pleased with my group project results — even more so that we could take the module we developed and, with very little tweaking, put it to use in our own settings. … I have an opportunity to play a pivotal role in redefining education at my workplace. I’m very grateful for the knowledge I received and the two colleagues and Professor who helped shape my knowledge in this area.”

Signature Assignment: Visible Thinking “I look forward to revisiting this later in the program to see how I have evolved in my thinking about learning.”

Student Voices STEPHANIE H. “I am able to share my learning in a colorful, creative way. This format allows me to bring words to life, allowing my reader to see inside my journey and not just words on a paper … Some images and videos I chose to include convey meanings that are otherwise hard to capture. Through my voice you hear my passion and purpose for my work.”

Student Voices TAMARA D. “It was an opportunity to integrate my personality with my education, a space where I could gather my thoughts and memorialize them. The process of entering that information reinforced what I learned and enhanced my ability to reflect on my experience. I had a place to contain my knowledge that sometimes, honestly, can escape me!”
