eLearnSpace, an excellent blog. This is a brief overview of
eportfolios from the perspective of a Canadian elearning researcher.
Electronic Portfolios as Knowledge Builders
The introduction to Cambridge, B. (2001).
Washington, DC: AAHE. This is still the best book out on electronic
Integrity of Electronic Portfolios in the United States
This is my own attempt to define electronic portfolios around a central
feature, integration. I wrote this paper in part to help pursuade European
colleagues that a portfolio is distinct from the venue in which it is
composed, e.g. an eportfolio system.
Conflicting Paradigms in Electronic
This article explore the tention between institutional and individual
purposes for portfolios. Pay particular attention to the diagram. (I've
replaced the Gibson and Barrett piece, which I had mistakenly placed here,
with this one. I've moved Gibson and Barrett to Week 3.)
Postmodernism, Palimpest, and Portfolios
An article from CCC, the top journal in rhetoric and composition.
Despite the title, this is actually quite readable. In this article, Yancey
builds on her idea of "web sensible" portfolios.
Reflection in the
Writing Classroom, Chapter 1
This first chapter in Kathleen Yancey book surveys a range of theories of
reflection and offers a four-part framework for thinking about reflective
This introduction gives an overview of the Alverno self-assessment
framework, a model for many electronic portfolio programs. (This is not a
very good scan. I'll try to get a better one before we get to this piece.)
E-Portfolio Program: Providing a Comprehensive Tool for Student Development,
Reflection, and Integration
Developing an E-Portfolio Program
A study of the implementation of electronic portfolios at Florida State
University over an eight year period.
eFolio Minnesota for Lifelong and Lifewide Learning
This is the report I wrote for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities
evaluating eFolio Minnesota. I'd like to offer it both as a source of ideas
about portfolio use beyond the classroom and as one model for evaluation
research on portfolio programs.
Electronic Portfolio Technology Options
A presentation I've given several places to good response on the range of
technology options available for supporting portfolio composition and use. I
propose four categories, generic, proprietary, open source, and homegrown,
and outline the pros and cons of each.
This is a fairly comprehensive resource that guides you through the process
of selecting an enterprise system, such as a portfolio tool. Don't feel like
you need to read everything here right now. I offer it mostly as a future
resource. The other InfoKits are generally excellent as well, although the
new one focused in ePortfolios has some blind spots.
Directions in Electronic
This influential paper proposes the idea of ePortfolio tools as balanced
assessment systems that serve both individual and institutional needs.
Electronic Learning Portfolios and Student Affairs
A brief piece in the NASPA newsletter in which Helen Chen and Cynthia Mazow
outline applications of learning portfolios in student affairs and discuss
their concepts of learning careers and folio thinking.
A joint report from AAHE, ACPA, and NASPA on academic affairs - student
affairs partnerships. Barbara Cambridge spoke about this report in our chat
