Housed in the Office of University Writing, the ePortfolio Project is a campus-wide initiative that offers Auburn students the opportunity to create personal websites that:
- Communicate and showcase skills, experiences, and learning
- Contain diverse artifacts—documents and media
- Contextualize those artifacts for potential employers, graduate schools, etc.
The heart of the ePortfolio Project is the learning that happens as students revisit and reconsider their Auburn experience for a real audience.
Departments and programs are taking up the ePortfolio Project in ways that make sense for their contexts, most often by integrating aspects of ePortfolios into curriculum, mentoring students as they identify goals and engage in reflection, and investigating the connections between ePortfolios and critical thinking.
Auburn University supports these efforts by providing grant funding, recognizing exemplary practices, and providing faculty and student instruction.
