Abstract

Presenters in this session will present case studies describing implementation of electronic portfolio development in three different colleges of education. Common themes of comparison will include purposes of e-portfolios, implementation challenges, and the obvious need for ongoing training and support. Two of the three colleges purchased customized Web-based portfolio systems developed by third party vendors while the third developed a blended system combining the use of generic tools with an in-house database. These cases describe tensions and problems associated with using e-portfolios for multiple purposes, such as student reflection and institutional accreditation. In addition, presenters will acknowledge complications that arise in sustaining and standardizing e-portfolio use following initial implementation. Findings reveal contradictory responses and underdeveloped purposes using e-portfolios in each of these colleges of education.
