Digital Teaching Portfolios: Catalysts for Fostering Authentic Professional Development
Milman, Natalie B.; Kilbane, Clare R.
Canadian Journal of Learning and Technology, v31 n3 Fall 2005
This paper reports the findings of a qualitative study examining the role of digital teaching portfolios in teachers' professional development and classroom practice. The participants, all teachers, took part in a formal course in which they develop a digital teaching portfolio. The findings suggest that the processes involved in creating digital teaching portfolios fostered their authentic professional development, and were a catalyst for their ongoing professional development. Furthermore, engagement in creating a portfolio was instrumental in these teachers' self­-discovery and learning.
