 Background objective:

As part of LSEE courses and fieldwork, the on-going development of a personal teaching ePortfolio offers students the opportunity to showcase accomplishments and growth as a beginning teacher.  Each semester students have the opportunity to add to an ePortfolio and reflect on items included in the ePortfolio.  The following outline provides a list of files where possible items can be archived for the ePortfolio.  A personal teaching ePortfolio should be developed in consultation with instructors, and when time allows with cooperating teachers in fieldwork placements.

    I am sure that there is a better way to do this! However, I am a step one…

    I like this setup- it is a simple solution and introduces students to working with Google Docs and online collaboration. I think it also allows them to focus their time on the content rather than learning a new program such as Google Sites. However, I’d like to add an option or ‘next step’ to allow them to showcase it as a website for presenting and sharing with others and prospective employers. But unfortunately I don’t have any big ideas for doing that in a simple/fluid way.

  3. This is a great way for students to maintain a running CV/portfolio. I like that this framework provides a location to store their documents/materials as well as provides an area for reflection or interpretation about their experiences and how they have grown/changed as a teacher.

    Google Docs/Drive provides a simple to use platform where all those documents and reflection materials can be stored. It does lend itself as a good ePortfolio option, but I’m a little curious about how that is then shared with prospective employers. Is the idea that the students can provide them with the link to their ePortfolio? One thought would be that the Google Drive acts as a housing/storage for these documents, but the students use a platform like WordPress to showcase their most recent/up to date work. I have a feeling this would look more polished to a potential employer. I know it adds another step for the students, but if they are already storing and updating their information into the Google Drive then maintaining a WordPress for the final presentation of their work seems like a good personal marketing option. Just a thought.

    Yes, a personalized Google Site or WordPress or Webydo would be the polishing step. I list it as the 5th step or component “creativity” after “content” and “organization.” Students will provide the link on the Title Page along with the table of contents.
