Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The most valuable component of a university are faculty that motivate, stimulate, and facilitate students' learning. The e portfolio is an electronic compilation of documents that highlight faculty through periodic self and peer assessment and evaluation of individual goals and education philosophy as reflected by their teaching, service, and scholarship.

PURPOSE: The purpose of this presentation is to demonstrate and discuss the use of e portfolio as an effective electronic media for faculty illustration of innovative students' learning.

METHODOLOGY: The College of Allied Health and Nursing of the Health Professions Division in 2009 initiated the formal electronic process of faculty appointment, reappointment, and continuing contract by e portfolio. Computer WordPress and Slideshare software were used by faculty to create e portfolios that are stored on a university Web server and peer evaluated.

RESULTS: Professors have been currently reviewed by e portfolio within the College of Allied Health and Nursing NSU Fort Lauderdale campus.

CONCLUSIONS: The e portfolio is an effective electronic media for faculty illustration of innovative student learning. The e portfolio provides electronic documentation of faculty teaching, scholarship, and services that impact on students’ learning while reflecting educational quality. Recommendations: 1. To demonstrate and assist faculty in moving toward an electronic e portfolio system. 2.
