The electronic portfolio system developed by the Johns Hopkins Center for Technology in Education is modeled on a process developed and refined in our Masters of Arts in Teaching program over the past seven years. Our Web-enabled system provides a standards-based framework for the collection of artifacts, a student-centered mechanism for artifact collection, organization, and presentation, and an integrated communication system designed to facilitate both peer and faculty advising throughout the portfolio development process. The EP system has been in use for the past 18 months by more than 500 students in our M.A.T. program. Presenters will demonstrate the primary components of the software using actual student portfolios as examples. Several workstations will be provided in order to allow hands-on exploration of the system by participants.
