Starting an ePortfolio: A Multi-Disciplinary Approach
Zinger, Lana; Sinclair, Alicia
Contemporary Issues in Education Research, v7 n4 p249-252 2014
ePortfolio integrates technology with a student's academic course work and have increasingly become an integral part of higher education curriculum. They allow students to showcase their academic work in a fresh way on a digital platform. Traditionally, however, ePortfolio is implemented from a single discipline approach. This project aimed to combine two similar courses within a learning community setting where students compiled their course work onto their individual ePortfolios. By engaging in a multi-disciplinary approach, students reported a better understanding of the other discipline and felt a better sense of academic preparation (i.e. real life experience) for graduation and transfer to four-year colleges.
