S-L E-Portfolio Competition
E-Portfolio for your reflection and learning
An E-portfolio is a web-based collection of students’ works, including presentations, team projects, creative writing, and anything reflecting a student’s learning (Stanford University, 2018). E-portfolio is not only for the documentation but also deepening the student’s learning, especially for dispositional learning such as fluid intelligence and interpersonal and intrapersonal competencies (Kuh, et al., 2018), language, and intercultural learning (Kennedy, Bruen & Péchenart, 2011). E-portfolio has the potential to capture and record different aspects of the learning process for reflection and continuous assessment for strengthening students’ self-directed learning. Therefore, the Office of Service-Learning and Teaching and Learning Centre work together to organize an E-Portfolio competition for enhancing students’ learning outcomes through the reflection in Service-Learning projects.
