Overview

Praise for Eportfolios for Lifelong Learning and Assessment

"A brilliant synthesis of theory, scholarship, and rich, real-world examples—this is the book the international eportfolio community has been waiting for. Its challenging educational vision and sure sense of where the latest technology is taking us make it essential reading for all teachers and decision makers—for everyone, in fact, who wants to think deeply and imaginatively about eportfolio provision for the next generation."—Angela Smallwood, associate professor of Education, and director, Centre for Integrative Learning and the International Center for ePortfolio Development, University of Nottingham

"Darren Cambridge's book is about much more than electronic portfolios; it is a natively twenty-first century vision of integrative learning. Any scholar of teaching and learning who is trying to make sense of this transformational moment in higher education should read it."—Randy Bass, executive director, Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship, and assistant provost, Teaching and Learning Initiatives, Georgetown University

"Eportfolios for Lifelong Learning and Assessment maps an ambitious agenda. It's about eportfolios, of course, but as important, it challenges us to think about curriculum, pedagogy, and assessment collectively, as a coherent whole. It helps us see that in the process of making these pieces work together, we construct a culture—not only in school for our students, but also in life for us all. And in establishing this framework, this volume provocatively asks, Which culture do we want to create and support?"—Kathleen Blake Yancey, Kellogg W. Hunt professor of English and director of the graduate program in Rhetoric and Composition, Florida State University
