Electronic Portfolios in Counselor Education.
Lewis, Jacqueline; Coursol, Diane; Herting-Wahl, Kay
An electronic portfolio is a collection of selected documents that illustrate an individual's competencies, skills, and accomplishments in a consolidated technological format. Like the traditional portfolio, counselors can use an electronic portfolio to document their professional skills and progress for supervisors, record their professional development, and emphasize specific skill areas for potential employers. This chapter describes the concept, applications, development, and technological requirements for electronic portfolio development. It then discusses a model for infusing an electronic portfolio project into a graduate curriculum to prepare counselors to work more effectively. This chapter also examines implications of electronic portfolios for learning and for the new millennium. An appendix provides a list of Web sites that have information about the electronic portfolio process. (Contains 17 references.) (MKA)
