The institution and progressive element of digital portfolios within pre-service teacher preparation is a major component for this College of Education. As an element within the admission process to teacher education, the portfolio serves as the embarkation point. This portfolio, in partnership with two other required courses for admission, serves as the "developmental" stage of the digital record. Students then continue the portfolio in a junior-level course that is a co-requisite to an early field experience class. The combination assures pre-service students plan, deliver, and assess content-driven lessons, and marry technology integration to address the needs of diverse K-12 learners. At the conclusion of the third year, these future educators have a digital document of skills, content, and technology integration in the three major areas of classroom instructional leadership (planning, delivery, and assessment).
