PANEL DESCRIPTION: This Interactive Symposium
will attempt to set an agenda for research on electronic portfolios in teacher
education. Following a discussion of conflicting definitions and diverse implementation
models, the current research literature on electronic portfolios will be summarized.
Then, at least three research studies on electronic portfolio implementation
in Teacher Education will be presented. Following these presentations, and
comments by the discussant, the presenters and the audience will be invited
to suggest new directions for researching the effectiveness of electronic
portfolios in education. Attendees at this session will be invited to participate
in a nation-wide data collection effort on electronic portfolio development
and use in Teacher Education programs.
