This paper describes the development and implementation of the electronic portfolio program in the College of Education at the University of Florida. Beginning in the fall of 2000 all students entering the Proteach Program were required to develop electronic portfolios. Prior to this initiative an elaborate infrastructure was designed to support both the students and faculty involved with this innovation. Each student's electronic portfolio is viewed as a dynamic, interactive document that is developed over the student's entire college experience and may continue to develop indefinitely. It will contain illustrations of how the student has met Florida's Accomplished Practices, the student's professional goals and achievements, biographical information, and a personal teaching philosophy. Methods of developing electronic (online) portfolios are shared, ways of integrating these portfolios into practice are discussed, and an illustration of sample contents is reviewed.
