Dr. Barrett will focus on the two main approaches to ePortfolio development: portfolio as process/workspace (supporting learning and reflection) and portfolio as product/showcase (supporting accountability and self-marketing/employment). Dr. Barrett will provide a balanced framework for developing ePortfolios, especially using mobile devices that support lifelong learning, with the essential elements of reflection and intrinsic motivation. We will explore the two conflicting paradigms of assessment according to Peter Ewing (Accountability vs. Improvement) as applied to ePortfolio development. http://electronicportfolios.com/balance/
