Dr. Helen Barrett, former faculty at the University of Alaska, Anchorage has spent nearly a decade investigating the use e-portfolios for enhancing stduent learning. In this show, she lays it on the line: e-portfolios that are designed as summative 'showcases' of achievement are missing an opportunity to have students focus on substantive learning.

Dr. Helen Barrett, recipient of the EIFEL lifetime achievement award for her contributions to e-portfolio research and development, joins us this week to put a firm emphasis on having students control their learning through e-portfolios. In addition to highlighting the ‘two faces of e-portfolios’, Helen makes the case that universities have been placing too great an emphasis on e-portfolios for summative learning.

curious about your perspective on "ownership" of portfolio (institution vs student) ... esp. for portfolio as workspace ... and the importance (or not) of them to be able to take it with them after the formal educational experience is over.
