Portfolio Development in Teacher Education and Educational Leadership.
Biddle, James
The Ohio Consortium for Portfolio Development was established in 1988 as an interinstitutional research effort to integrate portfolio development into teacher education. A subphase focused on portfolio use by entry year teachers in a metropolitan school system. Personnel at Wright State University, Central State University, and the University of Dayton agreed to employ some of the same elements in portfolio development, though the approaches differed among themselves to some degree. The paper examines each program's experience with portfolio development, noting limitations and strengths, and presents tentative findings as of January 1992. These findings indicate strong student support for portfolio development commencing with the initial education course. Evidence also suggests that portfolios help in developing classroom management skills, content pedagogy, command of subject matter, student-specific pedagogy, and professional responsibility. The results indicate a need for further research relative to administrative uses for staff recruitment, selection, and development. (SM)
