Our professional development support required a customized approach which included five steps:
- Creating a conceptual ePortfolio framework.
- Transferring the information obtained via the conceptual framework into a curriculum map.
- Consulting with programs on development/refinement of individual ePortfolio elements.
- Modifying rubrics with faculty, providing calibration session, and developing reflective questions based on the rubric descriptors.
- Providing orientation to ePortfolio platform.
The outlined sequence of the professional development process was flexible and adjusted based upon the client’s needs and level of preparation.
