Scaling Up ePortfolios at a Complex Urban Research University: The IUPUI Story


An early adopter of ePortfolios, IUPUI began its ePortfolio initiative without a roadmap or example to follow. Enthusiastic leaders were not enough: early efforts fell short. We retrenched and revamped, listening carefully to the needs of our campus stakeholders and attuning our strategy to the variety of disciplinary cultures at our complex urban research university. Adoption expanded, first slowly, then more rapidly as exemplars were established, the technology was improved, and we learned to make the case for ePortfolios. Today we have a rich mix of ePortfolio projects exploiting the varied abilities of ePortfolios to support student development, integrative and experiential learning, assessment of learning outcomes, and professional showcase.
