ECFS ePortfolio Overview

When should I begin my ePortfolio? Are there specific steps I should follow?

LifeCycle

ECFS students usually begin their ePortfolios in the ECFS 454 . This course introduces students to portfolios as well as an introduction to the ECFS portfolio requirements. In general, you should archive all work that is produced in ECFS classes on your UW Google Drive for use with your UW Google Site so you can better pull information that you may need when you are composing your portfolio in the ECFS 456 Senior Capstone course. To learn more about this process, visit the ECFS Degree Portfolio Handbook.

 What should my ePortfolio look like?

You will complete your portfolio in an electronic format, following the Google Sites template provided to you. It will include the following components:

  • Home Page
  • Professional Philosophy
  • Resume
  • NAEYC Standards: Artifacts and Reflective Narratives for each
  • Teaching and Learning Cycle: Artifacts and Reflective Narratives for each step

Student ePortfolio Tutorials

The student ePortfolio tutorials guide users through the essential steps of creating an ePortfolio using Google Sites: from activating UW Google Apps, editing a site, page and site management, sharing a site with an instructor, and more.

Sample ePortfolios from ECFS Students

The following are examples of ePortfolios created by ECFS students. Keep in mind that you do not have to necessarily follow these examples and that your department or instructor may have different requirements for ePortfolios. To view these portfolios, make sure you are logged into your UW Google Apps.
