Abstract

A course portfolio consists of materials that instructors collect and organize to demonstrate how a course is taught and facilitated or managed. A course portfolio can include any relevant documentation such as the syllabus, exams, exercises, problem sets, samples of student work, etc. It is important to include a framing statement that places the course in its institutional context and summarizes the major aspects of the course. In addition to the advantages of maintaining a course portfolio for a traditional class, a course portfolio for the online instructor provides many more advantages. It can help to prevent "academic amnesia" (what did I do last term?), it can help the instructor reflect on aspects of the course, and it can provide a means for assessment of the course by an academic administrator. Administrators are generally unfamiliar with the online environment, thus a portfolio provides documentation in a familiar printed format.
