If you think eportfolios are transformational, why don't you have one?
After AAC&U's January 2011 Eportfolio Forum--where attendees were challenged to actively learn and reflect throughout the day--a small group of eportfolio leaders took that day's challenge to "walk the portfolio talk" to heart: to actually create and update the portfolios they advocate for so passionately. Because while we require students to create and update portfolios, we--as portfolio professionals--often don't practice what we preach.
As 2011 unfolded, folks got together, formed a group called Out of Practice, each developed a portfolio--everything from course portfolios focused on professional development to comprehensive portfolios representing all parts of life--and held each other accountable regularly for their portfolio creation and updating.
