What is an efolio?

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.
