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 arizona.digication.com with your UA NetID and Password.

Your About Me Page

About Me

Editing your About Me page is a great way to get started and make your ePortfolio your own. This topic will cover how to add photos, add text descriptions, edit pages, as well as how to submit your About Me assignment in Digication.

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!

Gen Ed ePortfolio Examples

Looking for some examples of Gen Ed ePortfolios? Look at what a few of your peers have created by visiting our Digication ePortfolio Directory.

The ePortfolio template used in UNIV 101 has default permission settings set to "Private within the University of Arizona". This allows your Instructors and your peers to view your work if they are logged into Digication. You can change the permission settings when sharing your work at any time. Learn more about sharing and publishing your work

While there are great examples in our ePortfolio directory, be sure to reference your own class assignment descriptions and rubrics to understand how to complete these course assignments, as they may differ from what your peers created.
