During this class, students will learn the basic principles of electronic portfolio (or e-portfolio) development for art education professionals.

Online portfolios, which may include items such as resumes, examples of lesson plans, teaching statements, professional evaluations, and examples of student work, can be very useful for art educators to document professional progress over time. An online portfolio helps to develop and demonstrate skills in assessment and reflection, and to provide evidence of teaching competencies for initial, professional, and master licensure.
