UBPortfolio and the UB Curriculum

ePortfolios are purposeful collections of student work that can be used to showcase student efforts and ideas, and act as archives of learning, discovery, progress, achievement and self-reflection.

ePortfolios Beyond the UB Curriculum

ePortfolios - created in the UBLearns Portfolio tool - can be used by faculty and staff for other purposes beyond instruction in the UB Curriculum.   

  • Portfolios can be used to facilitate information sharing among committee members, task forces, interest groups and learning communities.
  • Instructors can create a teaching portfolio to demonstrate teaching effectiveness.
  • ePortfolios can be created for such purposes as to support tenure and promotion dossiers and/or award nomination materials, to serve as a digital CV, or to be used to share course materials with students.
  • ePortfolios can be used as a platform to share information within working groups, with the UB community as a whole, and with people outside of UB.
