Lehman College – ePortfolio Professional Development Journey: From General Value to Specific Outcomes

If you are just starting an ePortfolio journey, here is a professional development strategy that was beneficial to our first steps. The professional development series started with School of Education faculty who expressed interest in developing an ePortfolio pilot project within his/her course or program. We had one pilot project underway and it began to pique faculty interest. Some participants were encouraged to participate in the first round of professional development because they already had paper portfolios or were part of a program that would benefit greatly from an ePortfolio process. Representatives from three different departments participated, enabling conversation and support across disciplines. In order to start an ePortfolio pilot, faculty needed to commit to six 2-hour sessions, plus individual time to develop course objectives and an ePortfolio template. Nine faculty members (a large group from a faculty of 45) participated in the professional development series.
