E-portfolios perform many functions in higher education at both an institutional and student level. This book offers online instructors guidance in creating and implementing e-portfolios with their students. It provides the instructors with a theory-to-practice approach to understanding the pedagogy behind ePortfolios and to helping students use them to record and reflect on their learning in multiple contexts. It helps them assess the needs of their students then design and implement a strategic, comprehensive e-portfolio program tailored to these needs. The authors outline a framework of six critical iterative tasks to undertake when implementing ePortfolios. Filled with real-life models of successful ePortfolio projects, the book also includes guidance for faculty development to support the use of ePortfolios and covers the place of ePortfolios in institutional assessment efforts. Further, it lets instructors see how such programs can be used as an example of their own personal and professional academic development. Finally, the authors offer considerations for deciding on which technological tools to deploy in implementing a successful ePortfolio narrative. This is a resource for any online instructor or student wishing to use e-portfolios as a tool.
