Every graduate student should create and periodically update a digital portfolio that reflects their scholarly and professional growth while at ASU.
Simply, it is an electronic collection of your accomplishments and reflective learning over time. Your digital portfolio is a place for you to record, explore, and reflect on your academic-professional journey, and it can serve many different audiences.
Whether you create your digital portfolio independently or as part of a course, program, or internship requirement, we recommend that you always consider its purpose and intended audience.
