Creating reflections

Use reflections to discuss items in your portfolio, record your thoughts on topics that interest you, set goals, and think critically about your learning.

Add a reflection

  1. Click the New button on the My Items page and then click Reflection from the drop-down menu.
  2. Give your reflection a Title.
  3. Enter your thoughts in the Reflection field.
  4. Add any Tags you want the reflection to have.
  5. Click Save.

Associating reflections with artifacts, collections or presentations

Reflections may be independent portfolio items or associated with artifacts, collections, or presentations. Associating reflections with other items helps other users see the relationship between the items and makes it easier to revisit your goals and assumptions later.

Reflections are only visible to other users if you share them, associate them with an item, or add them to a collection or presentation.

See Inherited (cascading) permissions for more information about how associations affect sharing in ePortfolio.

  3. Select whether you want to associate the reflection with An Artifact, A Collection or A Presentation.
  4. Select the appropriate item from the list of items that appears, and click Add.
