Description

This issue presents the range of current systems, examines various design considerations associated with them, provides examples of models in place at selected institutions, and stresses the importance for student affairs leadership of creating a college- or university-wide e-portfolio delivery system. The primary focus is on career or showcase e-portfolios intended for student use, systems that often involve student affairs and supporting units such as career services.

E-Portfolios are increasing important in higher education, both in the U.S. and around the world. They are being designed and used to support the learning process through reflection, in assessment-based systems that support institutional accreditation, an in so-called showcase e-portfolios that support students' career development and employment.

This is the 119th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Services.
