e-Portfolios Helped UBC Students Develop Career-Savvy Skills

e-Portfolios are personalized collections of an individual’s work, which are used to demonstrate their skills and accomplishments, that can be viewed over the Web. The creator can add personal commentary and reflect on the artifacts, or pieces of work, they include in their portfolio, which helps them measure and understand their personal development over a period of time.

The person who owns the portfolio can provide selective access to individuals or the public, and invite feedback from others. Most importantly, the e-Portfolio is a tool that gives the student a sense of ownership and puts them at the centre of their learning process.
