Abstract

Teacher candidates’ attitudes and perceptions towards electronic portfolio process were investigated. For this purpose, 33 teacher candidates were selected based on certain criteria. Qualitative approach was used. The participants used a portal, which was developed to serve as e-portfolio tools, for five weeks. After the application, semi-structured interviews were conducted on one-on-one base in order to determine their perspectives and attitudes toward the e-portfolio process. The results showed that that electronic portfolio process was perceived as a desired teaching process; and the participants developed positive attitudes towards this process. In addition, being first time users of e-portfolio had implications on their perceptions and attitudes toward the process. Moreover, the findings showed that e-portfolio should be a part of teacher education and included in the policies of education institutes.
