Portfolios

UConn has a university-wide contract with Portfolium to provide ePortfolio accounts for all faculty, staff, and students. An ePortfolio is a valuable tool in the development of a learner. It is more than an electronic record keeping system; it is intentional designed instructional approach that encourages periodic reflection on and deepen of learning by connecting and making sense of experiences inside and outside of classroom. An ePortfolio allows the student to demonstrate learning beyond what is on an official transcript by showcasing best work, co-curricular experiences, and the student’s own interpretation of how these all combine to be larger than the sum of their parts in the student’s development.
