FOLIO THINKING Campus Learning Community

The 2017/2018 Folio Thinking CLC meets on the last Friday of each month. There are no formal requirements/commitments associated with participating in Folio Thinking CLC other than a desire to participate in a year-long cross-departmental and unit conversation about portfolios, folio thinking, and pedagogy. For more information contact: Aurelea Mahood.


Eight instructors from four Faculties will be participating in the Spring 2018 ePortfolio Development Community beginning in mid-January. They will be sharing their work with the university community at the May 2018 Learning & Teaching Symposium. For more information on the 2018 Development Community, please contact Aurelea Mahood, Portfolio Project Faculty Lead.

Web Resources

Requesting a WordPress Site

All interested university employees can access the Capilano University ePortfolios WordPress multi-site. Login using your Capilano Username and Password. First time users will be provisioned with a blank WordPress site with the default theme. There are currently more than a dozen active themes to select from as you begin to customize your site. Contact us if you have suggestions for additional themes.

Your WordPress site can be used to build a course website, allow group authoring on a blog, provide peer review of authored content (editing with comments), provide class webspace development (adding annotated links/building a shared resource for a class), and build a personal portfolio (upload media – slides, video, images of your artwork).

If you are a faculty member who requires multiple sites, please Contact us directly with your request.
