IUPUI – Reflection in the First Year: A Foundation for Identity and Meaning Making


The electronic Personal Development Plan (ePDP) is scaffolded into the curriculum of the first-year seminar at IUPUI so as to allow students to build a solid foundation for meaningful college experiences. The seven sections of the portfolio lead students through guided reflection prompts that ask them to consider who they are, why they are in college, and how the college experience will support and enhance their future goals. This initial portfolio is intended to be updated throughout the college experience so that the student is engaged in recursive planning, documenting, and reflection on their personal and intellectual growth throughout college.
