ePortfolio Support

The UCWbL is DePaul’s official student support site for ePortfolios.

The Writing Center is the UCWbL support location for ePortfolios with tutoring focused on reflective and multimodal writing practices, by offering appointments to help writers with any aspect of ePortfolio development and construction. Our Peer Writing Tutors have particular expertise with Digication, the platform DePaul uses for professional development and pedagogical practice. Crafting Digication ePortfolios is part of the training course all new Writing Center Tutors must take.

In addition to helping writers through Writing Center appointments, the UCWbL creates content for DePaul's Get Help Guide and serve as facilitators for the many Digication ePortfolio-focused in-class workshops through our Workshops program.

Why ePortfolios?

DePaul advocates the use of ePortfolios to promote and represent reflective practices across learning in multiple professional, curricular, and co-curricular experiences.

Such reflective practices encourage learners to identify, articulate, and synthesize the strengths, values, beliefs, and skills that they bring into multiple contexts. Hence ePortfolios serve as a valuable tool in helping learners achieve all of the University Learning Goals and Outcomes, but particularly Goal 5: Integration of Learning. In addition, ePortfolios encourage access to and experience with the mixed modalities of communication that are increasingly central to literate practices. Overall, ePortfolios, thoughtfully implemented, help DePaul University achieve its mission of developing “the full range of human capabilities and appreciation of higher education as a means to engage cultural, social, religious, and ethical values in service to others.”
