Professional Portfolio Fundamentals:
Creating a Professional Tool for Teacher Reflection, Analysis and Evaluation
*“P**ortfolios have much to offer the teaching profession. When teachers
carefully examine their own practices, those practices are likely to
improve. The examples of accomplished practice that portfolios provide also
can be studied and adapted for use in other classrooms.” - Dr. Kenneth
Wolf, University of Colorado*
Many districts now require teacher-created evidence binders or portfolios.
Creating a portfolio provides an opportunity for analytical assessment of
student learning. It can inform evidence-based decision making around
instruction and content. Additionally, portfolios can build teacher
capacity and teacher leadership through rigorous sustained analysis of
content and practice. In this *1 hour *webinar participants will examine
the fundamentals of professional portfolios including:
- Discussing the purposes and potential uses of a professional portfolio
- Investigating the essential components of professional portfolios
designed for reflection and evaluation
With the year winding down this is an ideal opportunity to think about the
design of your portfolio by exploring the purposes and tools for
professional portfolios in an convenient online environment.
The Greater Capital Region Teacher Center plans to provide additional
support around Portfolio Development in the summer and fall of 2013.
