EDTP 631 Introduction to Documenting Practice (2)
Initiates the development of a professional portfolio, which will be constructed toward the end of the program in the companion course, Documenting and Presenting Practice. The introductory course offers teachers conceptual and technical tools of reflection, based upon portfolio documentation and case-based analysis of teaching. Teachers sample cases before attempting to construct and share one of their own. Through an introduction to the NBPTS approach to documenting practices, teachers discuss choices, plan elements of their teaching portfolio, and acquire skill using audio-video and computer-based technologies to support case and portfolio development.
