Faculty FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

Academic technology consults with faculty in programs that are using ePortfolios across the discipline. If your class is part of a program that has adopted ePortfolios, Academic technology will provide workshops and/or workshop materials for a gateway course in your program to help students get started.

If your program is not using ePortfolios across the discipline, your students can still access the Portfolium ePortfolio and create entries to showcase signature assignments or projects. Please contact us at eport@sfsu.edu if you'd like access to our Faculty ePortfolio Quickstart guide that provides links to help documents and best practice tips for supporting your students in reflective learning with ePortfolios.

If your department is interested in implementing ePortfolios in your program, we'd be happy to talk with you! Start by consulting our faculty information page and email us at eport@sfsu.edu to schedule a consultation with our ePortfolio team.

If your program is using ePortfolios across the discipline, your program faculty should sign up for the onboarding workshops through our sign-up form which is sent out at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters. If your program or department has adopted ePortfolios with the support of Academic Technology and you have not received the form, please contact us at eport@sfsu.edu.
