High-Impact ePortfolio Practice: A Catalyst for Student, Faculty, and Institutional Learning
By Bret Eynon and Laura M. Gambino
Foreword by George D. Kuh
“Eynon and Gambino have written the book I’ve been waiting for. It demonstrates the power of ePortfolios to transform college learning and offers practical strategies for realizing this potential. As an extraordinarily insightful, comprehensive guide to designing an effective ePortfolio initiative, High-Impact ePortfolio Practice will take its place as the reference of choice for campus and program ePortfolio leaders.”
– Susan Kahn, Director, ePortfolio Initiative, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis
“The Eynon-Gambino book will become an instant classic, readable, authoritative, reflecting the experience of many diverse institutions and finally settling the question “what is an ePortfolio?” I recommend this book to anyone in higher education.”
– Trent Batson, Founder of AAEEBL, the international ePortfolio organization
In this new publication from Stylus Publishing, Eynon and Gambino draw on the campus ePortfolio projects developed by the institutions that participated in the Connect to Learning network. Their broad-based evidence demonstrates that, implemented with a purposeful framework, ePortfolios correlate strongly with increased retention and graduation rates, broadened student engagement in deep learning processes, and advanced faculty and institutional learning.
The core of the book presents a comprehensive research-based framework, the Catalyst Framework, along with practical examples and strategies for implementation, and identifies the key considerations that need to be addressed in the areas of Pedagogy, Professional Development, Outcomes Assessment, Technology and Scaling Up.
