Assessing Impact: E-Portfolios in Higher Education

Friday, January 09 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | Commonwealth Hall C/D (second floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
The higher education community has discussed the benefits of e-portfolios for over a decade. While it is generally believed that they play a positive role, their adoption has been slow. Using case studies to highlight best practices and research targeting the impact of e-portfolios in a long-standing program-wide implementation, this session will provide a frank assessment of the fundamental obstacles to e-portfolio adoption, balanced with an analysis of the benefits of implementation within higher education to date. This session will also engage attendees in a discussion about the state of e-portfolio planning and implementation at their institutions.
