Best Practices for Instructors


Explain the benefits of ePortfolios to students

Portfolios can help learners develop new or deeper learning, which results in higher grades; help learners develop a better sense of themselves as students and as individuals; be shared with friends and family members; and showcase learners' achievements when they are applying for a job.

Establish clear expectations

Explain to your students what you expect them to do in their ePortfolios. Learners may have difficulty understanding the need for them to reflect on their work and the need for them to make connections between different courses and experiences.

Provide numerous examples of successful ePortfolios created by students

Direct students to examples of effective ePortfolios created by Waterloo students, like Inkless, a project-focused ePortfolio created by Mechatronics Engineering student Kevin Liu or this ePortfolio by Knowledge Integration student Danielle Cruz that features course skills spotlights".

Scaffold student learning

Help students start small; ask them to choose just one artifact (such as an essay) and have them reflect on the challenges they had to address as they wrote their essay. Or, have the students select two assignments from different courses, and have them reflect on how each of those assignments helped them to better understand the other assignment.
