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.”
