Student Success ePortfolio: Student, Faculty and Employer Perspectives on the Value of ePortfolios in Assessing the Development of Essential Employability Skills

Students, faculty, and employers in Ontario all see value in ePortfolios, yet their value may not be realized until employers have a better understanding of them, according to a new study from the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario. The study examined the use of ePortfolios at Durham College and found that ePortfolios had positive value for students, faculty, and employers. Students saw them as useful for learning about and articulating essential skills; faculty felt the tools were useful for assessing students’ work and providing students an opportunity to reflect on their learning; and employers saw value in their potential for improving their recruitment, selection, and hiring process.
