About

The ePortfolio Program at Loyola University Chicago is designed to support students, faculty, and staff in the process of creating dynamic, engaging ePortfolios as a tool for teaching, learning, reflection, transformation, and assessment.

ePortfolios: What Will You Build?

An ePortfolio (electronic portfolio) is a digital collection of work over time that showcases your skills, abilities, values, experiences, and competencies through a broad range of evidence-based learning. An ePortfolio may include a variety of artifacts - or relevant documents and media files - that provide a holistic representation of who you are, personally, professionally, and academically. An ePortfolio may function as a venue for collecting and sharing academic work with faculty members, a tool for inviting collaboration and feedback, a professional portfolio to share with prospective employers, or a private log of academic progress.

ePortfolios for Students

ePortfolios can be a powerful catalyst for integrative learning and holistic development as well as a tool for self-branding and professional development. ePortfolios can:

  • Facilitate the integration of topics and themes across disciplines and over time 
  • Provide a forum to synthesize work and share that work with others
  • Contribute to holistic development in multiple ways, including: personal development, academic development, and career development
  • Provide a resource for demonstrating skills, abilities, and experiences in the job-search process
