  • WHY EPORTFOLIO? To deepen student learning and engagement:

    The LaGuardia ePortfolio encourages students to think about their learning within the broader context of family, career, culture, and experience.

  • WHY EPORTFOLIO?For Recruitment and Admission

    The LaGuardia ePortfolio is used to recruit potential students and orient newly admitted ones.

    During the orientation, students are given a sneak preview of what they can do with their ePortfolios and how they can benefit from them.

    LaGuardia stands out from other CUNY campuses because of its comprehensive ePortfolio program.

  • WHY EPORTFOLIO? As a tool to engage students in discussion of transfer issues in their discipline. The hope is to make ePortfolio as an advisement instrument to support the successful transfer of our students to senior colleges.

  • WHY EPORTFOLIO?For Program assessment:All colleges and universities examine teaching practice and student learning in order to improve the education provided to students. At LaGuardia, this process is called Program Assessment. And we do it, in part, with samples of class work students place in their ePortfolios and in the Program Assessment interface of the ePortfolios.
