To cultivate lifelong learning habits in students, full-time SUSS students are trained to reflect on their personal and professional growth by maintaining an e-portfolio. Students document their journey at SUSS by showcasing their achievements, skills and projects on their E-Portfolio account hosted on the Portfolium platform.

Aimed at encouraging students to exercise their creative freedom in curating their digital portfolios, SUSS organised the inaugural E-Portfolio Competition, in partnership with Potato Production. Comprising of both SUSS staff and industry players, the judging committee assessed a total of 35 e-portfolio submissions for the competition. Students were judged on personal branding, the diversity of artefacts and the accompanying visuals for showcase, in addition to the depth of reflective thinking on their growth and learning.
For some students, the decision to join the competition was simple. Soon Ping Huay, SUSS Marketing Degree student, shared, “I wanted to broaden my perspective by seeing how other SUSS students reflected on their SUSS journey and in turn, hone my self-reflection skills. My friends encouraged me to join too since they felt that my e-portfolio was well done and that I would probably be a strong contender.”

The top 10 winners were announced during the E-Portfolio Award Ceremony which was held on 13 April 2022 and certificates were presented to all participants. Lee Han Shih, founder of Potato Productions who was also part of the judging committee emphasised the importance of a digital portfolio to the students, “You are your own brand. A digital portfolio is not solely for those in the creative fields – it’s a reflection of you and your experiences.”
