Random Thoughts on Instructional Design

More on e-Portfolios

I have read a number of articles on portfolio development over the past several years trying to find best practices. What I came to find is that there was no agreement on what e-portfolios should be use for, how they should be integrated into the learning environment, or how they should be assessed. Since I couldn’t find that “magic bullet” I decided to create two different types of portfolios for my courses. One was designed as a capstone activity where instructional design students were required to develop a professional portfolio that utilized many of the tools they were trained on. And the other was a project specific portfolio that is used for course assessment and as an artifact in students’ professional portfolios.

Today I was reading eLearning Resources and News and found a little gem that provides e-Portfolio implementation lessons learned, testimonials, and resources from the University of British Columbia (UBC). If you are thinking about implementing e-Portfolios at the department, school, or institution level you may want to take a look at UBCs site.
