From Product to Process: Enhancing Learning through the Use of Student Electronic Portfolios.
Terheggen, S. L.; Prabhu, R. P.; Lubinescu, E. S.
Three theoretical perspectives can be considered to ground the conceptualization of the use of student electronic portfolios. These include the Student Integration Model of V. Tinto (1987), the Theory of Involvement of A. Astin (1985), and the Innovation Design Theory of E. Rogers (1995). The use of portfolios moves the learning process from a teacher centered to a learner centered environment in which the student reflects on the process. Administrators will find student electronic portfolios helpful in the process of accreditation, and faculty members can use portfolios as tools for aligning teaching styles with learning styles for maximizing learning. Employers will also find portfolios useful in making decisions about hiring. (SLD)
