ETAD 991.3 — 1/2(1L)
Scholarship in Teaching

Students will demonstrate their scholarship in teaching and learning through developing a comprehensive, detailed, and coherent collection of academic and professional work. The collected work will be organized and represented through the use of an electronic portfolio and will include any variety and combination of media (e.g., text, electronic files, images, video, multimedia products, blog entries, and other appropriate resources). The e-portfolio will provide documented and organized evidence tied to learning outcomes (developmental), personal reflection and articulation of meaning (reflective) and will showcase learners' achievements in relation to particular work or learning goals (representational). A final public presentation documenting both the professional development process and the terminal product will provide a superior capstone outcome, one underscoring the critical skill of effectively and coherently communicating such a compiled work.
