About the Learning Portfolio Program
The learning portfolio (ePortfolio) is a digital collection of student work, reflections, and educational experiences assembled in a structured, online format customized by the student and can be shared with faculty, staff, advisors, and peers. Learning portfolios assist students in critical reflection and the integration of learning across academic disciplines and co-curricular experiences.

Learning Portfolio Recommended Syllabus Insert
As a part of this course, you will be using learning portfolios to document your learning, growth, and make connections between course content and beyond-the-classroom experiences. You will be integrating your learning through critically reflective assignments and teaching methods to create new understanding of material and deepen your learning experiences that will be visually displayed on your learning portfolio. As you will be submitting your portfolio for assignment(s), you are encouraged to seek outside feedback from peers, other instructors, and advisors on content and structure of your work to deeper engage in learning.
