“It is clear that reflection is at the center of ePortfolio pedagogy. Reflection allows students to build bridges between prior and current learning, across semesters and among courses and disciplines. It allows for the construction and understanding of knowledge within personalized contexts to make the curriculum come alive with meaning for each student. In this way, ePortfolios provide a structured institutional framework that creates reflective experiences that promote integrated learning and the construction of meaning across the curriculum.” (Buyarski, Oaks, Reynolds, and Rhodes, 2017)
