3 Steps to Creating Your ePortfolio:

  1. Compose the text materials, examples of work, and personal reflections which you choose to include in your ePortfolio. If you are having a hard time deciding what personal and educational experiences are significant enough to include in your ePortfolio, it may be helpful to consult with previous students, professors, and/or advisers and ask for their input. Remember, this ePortfolio should function as a space to demonstrate your skills as well as your opinions about your progress, so remember to include all of these aspects!
  2. Create, edit, and organize the multimedia content you plan to present in your portfolio.This can include a wide variety of content including personal photos, images illustrating interesting experiences you have had, data tables, graphs, or sample exams and/or lesson plans (for teacher education).
  3. Present the items collected in steps 1 and 2 in an organized and visually compelling format using one of the blogging websites listed below! Your ePortfolio will be eventually be open to the public (i.e. professionals and potential employers), so keep in mind how you want to present yourself when creating your final product.
