Portfolio Development: Enhancing Professional Intelligence.
Lasley, Thomas J.; Tillman, Beverly
This paper provides examples of how portfolios are used at the University of Dayton (Ohio) in an introductory course titled "The Profession of Teaching" to enhance the interpersonal, intrapersonal, musical, linguistic, and spatial intelligence of preservice teachers. For example, students can include audiotapes of their experiences, poetry, sketches, or photographs. Portfolios help students reflect on their growth in terms of professional responsibility, command of subject matter, content-specific pedagogy, class organization and management, and student-specific pedagogy. Portfolios are considered a help for students to understand that their personal and professional growth is a life-long process, not merely a collegiate experience. (JDD)
