The professional teaching portfolio has been defined in many ways.
By its physical structure:
- a structured collection of evidence of a teacher’s best work (Mosely, 2005)
By its purpose:
- a forum for professional learning … or to assess a novice’s qualification (Hartmann, 2004)
By its consequences:
- sharing of successes and failures (MacDonald, 2004)
An efolio is a digital portfolio that can be a powerful bridge for professional development — to document growth and provide evidence of your academic work, career goals, and personal interests and skills as a practitioner.
An efolio is as much process as it is product.
