• Welcome to the Office of Teaching and Learning (OTL) ePortfolio project site! This community exists to provide support for anyone using ePortfolios to enhance learning at the University of Denver. Much of the content provided is developed specifically for the DU Portfolio application, but can also be adapted for use with other ePortfolio platforms. Use the navigation menu (to the left in a web-browser, or at the top of the screen on a mobile device) to start exploring!

  • What is an ePortfolio? ePortfolios are electronic collections of artifacts that are typically used to showcase the interests, goals, and achievements of individuals and/or groups. As a digital medium, ePortfolios open up opportunities for sharing evidence of work in fresh and dynamic ways!

  • What are reflective ePortfolios? ePortfolios were added to the American Association of Colleges and Universities' (AAC&U) list of High Impact Practices in 2016 as research confirmed that creating ePortfolios over time by curating collections of artifacts and reflecting on personal and academic growth increases retention, completion, and satisfaction rates. Two key elements of implementing ePortfolios as a HIP are the integrative nature of their use throughout the educational experience, and intentional inclusion of expectations for deep reflection allowing participants to form meaningful connections between their various experiences. Simply using an ePortfolio as a method for sharing work is also associated with positive gains, but not nearly as many as when they are paired with reflective work.

  • 7500 portfolios and counting!

    What is DU Portfolio? The "DU Portfolio" platform is a fully developed web-based application that supports the academic community with a searchable database of electronic portfolios for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and communities. Any person with a DU ID number and passcode may develop a DU portfolio by logging in at https://portfolio.du.edu, and DU alumni have access to the application for life!

    Contact Us: Please feel free to reach out to otl@du.edu or heather.tobin@du.edu with any questions, or if you'd like to schedule a one-on-one consultation regarding the use of ePortfolios in academic contexts.

  • Learn More: The below workshops are intended for faculty using DU Portfolio as a platform for reflective ePortfolios in their classes. However, students are also welcome to attend if interested. Additional information is available on the "Pedagogical Support" tab.

    Please contact heather.tobin@du.edu if you'd like to schedule a workshop for a different audience (i.e. faculty, staff, etc.).
