Resumen

Este estudio examina cómo la implementación de portafolios electrónicos (ePortfolios) como una práctica de alto impacto (HIP) mejoró las habilidades orales de estudiantes de inglés. Una muestra de 183 estudiantes de inglés como lengua extranjera (151 mujeres, 32 hombres) de la Northern Border University confeccionaros ePortfolios en el transcurso de un semestre. Se recopilaron y analizaron datos de grabaciones de voz, grupos focales y encuestas con el fin de evaluar su experiencia de aprendizaje. Un resultado importante del estudio fue que los ePortfolios ayudaron a desarrollar las habilidades orales de los estudiantes de inglés debido a la retroalimentación lingüística proporcionada por el profesorado y sus compañeros. Además, la creación de ePortfolios aumentó la motivación y la confianza de los estudiantes para hablar inglés, especialmente entre las mujeres, independientemente de sus niveles de competencia. Estos resultados tienen implicaciones para el profesorado y las personas que diseñan y desarrollan planes de estudios en una variedad de contextos.
