Beginning in 2011, entering first-year students in the Traditional Undergraduate Day Program received training in building an ePortfolio that showcases the knowledge and skills they develop through their education at Albertus. When it is time to graduate, students can use their ePortfolios to support their applications for positions in their fields or graduate study. After graduation, the College will continue to host students’ ePortfolios so they can build on them and use them as they advance in their education and careers.2
All first year students are required to develop an ePortfolio that aligns College benchmarks in core skills with a formal learning experience. The ePortfolio is a place to reflect, to critically think, to draw connections and to make meaning of learning. Students will use their ePortfolio to demonstrate learning over time, to improve academic performance, to reflect on personal strengths and weaknesses, to become civic-minded, and to prepare for meaningful careers.
