ePortfolio

 What is the ePortfolio?

An electronic portfolio (ePortfolio) is a collection of academic and individual work housed in an electronic format. Quickly update, share and display your best works throughout your college experience. Be ready to show off your academic achievements when it comes time to enter the workforce!

 What is the ePortfolio's purpose?

An ePortfolio enables you to recognize and reflect on what you've learned in the program and utilize it as an employability tool. In relation to the institution, it allows for assessment of student ability and drives internal improvement and external accountability. This is a collection of best work that is constantly changing and being updated. The beginning ePortfolio will, and should look different from the final ePortfolio and is utilized in a variety of ways. 

The ePortfolio does three things:
  1. Builds connections and reflection on teaching and learning.
  2. Gives teacher candidates a secure, dynamic employability tool.
  3. Provides CMU Professional Education Unit with insight on success and improvements in the Teacher Education Program.​

 Value of an ePortfolio

The value of the teacher education ePortfolio is tremendous and potentially limitless! The ePortfolio gives the user and their community an increasing range and quality of services. After graduation, you can use the ePortfolio to advance your education further, document your industriousness, secure interviews and find employment. The ePortfolio shows work in whole, giving the viewer a great sense of the your abilities, depth and growth.
