Even prior to being added to AAC&U's list of 11 High-Impact Practices that support an integrative higher education experience for students, many disciplines, including Rhetoric and Composition, realized the tremendous value of ePortfolios to help students collect, reflect on, and transfer their knowledge and skills across a variety of contexts. WAC supports the use of ePortfolios and the practice of metacognition through reflection across the vertical writing curriculum by offering resources and professional development opportunities for faculty. We also use ePortfolios to assess writing across the University.
WAC has collected a variety of resources regarding writing and reflective practice, shared here as Google Docs. For sample reflective assignments, please visit our sample assignments pages for WAC and WID.
