  28. 28. Effectiveness Evidence 1. I understand the purpose(s) and potential uses of ePortfolios to contribute to my growth as a learner and the development of my professional digital identity. 2. I can identify and provide specific examples of the knowledge and skills I’ve gained from different types of learning experiences. 3. I understand the importance of connecting the knowledge I’ve gained from one place (e.g., the skills gained working with others on a service project), to other situations (e.g., working with a team to plan and produce a group presentation in class). 4. I understand and can demonstrate how my varied learning experiences are connected to certain desired learning outcomes of the university (e.g., demonstrations of ethical leadership, responsible citizenship, and ethical participation in the global community). 5. I can demonstrate (through an essay, paper, presentation, video, ePortfolio page, etc.) the knowledge/skills I’ve gained from pursuing an area of study, or engaging in a series of actions, that reflect my passions and interests. 6. I can identify significant, impactful learning experiences both inside and outside the classroom, and thoughtfully reflect upon how those experiences have shaped/changed my understanding of self, others, and/or the world. 7. I understand the need to develop a professional digital identity that is distinct from a typical Facebook, LinkedIn, or other similar online identity. 8. I believe it is important to develop and maintain a professional digital identity that demonstrates my knowledge, skills, values, goals and contributions to the human community.
