Your ePortfolio is an online platform where you can professionally connect with your peers, instructors and potential employers. Students retain ownership of their ePortfolio content and in creating ePortfolio content are indicating that the work they are displaying is their own and not deliberately copied or plagiarized from other individuals. Below is our best practice guide on academic integrity for your ePortfolio.
- Cite your sources whether it be images, links to online content, or articles.
- Choose sources that are reputable and reliable. Work with your instructor(s) to differentiate between scholarly sources and unverifiable sources.
- Upload your original work in PDFs to help protect your work from being taken.
