The ePortfolio In General Education: Overview

Why are you creating an ePortfolio for your General Education?

Learning is an ongoing process, and your ePortfolio is a tool you will use to capture what you’ve learned from your Gen Ed experience and why that matters to you.

You’ll start creating your Gen Ed ePortfolio in UNIV 101: Introduction to the General Education Experience.

Throughout your Gen Ed program, you will add your Signature Assignments as you take more Gen Ed courses. You will create a final version of your Gen Ed ePortfolio in the UNIV 301: General Education Portfolio course. 

To get started, log into with your UA NetID and Password.

Signature Assignments

As you complete your general education, you will want to save your signature assignments and other work from your classes that meant a lot to you so you can add these learning artifacts to your ePortfolio.

Make it a habit during each semester to save your work, and more importantly, reflect on why you saved that learning artifact. This will make it easier for you to keep up with your ePortfolio, and more importantly, remember all that you learned!
