Eportfolio as a High-Impact Practice

Published on: Author: Nancy O'Laughlin

The following video shares a discussion George Kuh had at the Center for Engaged Learning’s Conference on “Excellent Practices in Mentoring Undergraduate Research.”  In 2008, Kuh published a book defining a set of educational practices research demonstrated had a significant impact on student success. His ten high-impact practices have a tremendous impact on higher education. In this short video, he discusses the addition of eportfolio as an additional next high-impact practice.

A forthcoming book, High Impact ePortfolio Practice by Bret Eynon and Laura Gambino, outlines eportfolio as a high-impact practice drawing on the campus eportfolio projects shared by participating institutions in the Connect to Learning project, which George Kuh mentions in the video. The University of Delaware participated as one of the 24 institutions. The book will be published by Stylus in January 2017.
