Article About Eportfolios at SLCC appears in AACU's Peer Review

David Hubert, Assistant Provost of Learning Advancement at Salt Lake Community College, recently had his article “Eportfolios, Assessment, and General Education Transformation” appear in Peer Review, a publication of the Association of American Colleges & Universities. The AACU calls itself “A voice and a force for liberal education in the 21st Century.” Hubert’s article can be found here in Peer Review’s Summer 2016 issue, which focuses on “Advancing Equity and Student Success through Eportfolios.”

Part of Hubert’s article reads:

“If a critical mass of a student’s instructors incorporate eportfolio effectively in their courses—instead of making it an add-on to an otherwise unchanged course—students begin to understand that eportfolios are a means of documenting and reflecting upon their learning. … We have evidence that eportfolios are helping students better understand and intentionally work toward general education learning outcomes. … After our ten-year accreditation visit in 2014, SLCC received a commendation from its regional accreditor for the way we use eportfolios to assess general education learning outcomes.”
