BOOKS FOR TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND POLICYMAKERS IN HIGHER EDUCATION
High-Impact ePortfolio Practice and Catalyst in Action Set
Between them, these two books, by on the one hand providing the theory, foundations, and guiding principles for impementing ePortfolios, and on the other providing concrete examples of implementation across institutional types and a wide range of programs, provide faculty and administrators with a comprehensive roadmap to integrating ePortfolios in multiple settings at their institutions as a means to improve retention, graduation and student engagement.
Review of High-Impact ePortfolio Practice:
“One of the main takeaways for me is that good ePortfolio work can be done effectively at any type of institution. Happily, Eynon and Gambino explain how, by illustrating the requisite steps and conditions to do ePortfolio well, in the classroom and beyond.
Moreover, all students benefit, especially those who are less well prepared for college, which is one of the most important and necessary features of a high impact practice.
The other noteworthy lesson for me personally is that the field now has another HIP to add to the officially approved list.
My sincere thanks and congratulations to all those involved for producing this important work and providing the guidance the enterprise needs to strengthen undergraduate education and enrich and deepen student learning. Bravo.”—George Kuh, Senior Scholar, National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment Chancellor’s Professor of Higher Education Emeritus - Indiana University
Review of Catalyst in Action:
“Catalyst in Action features twenty case studies from a diverse set of institutions, extending from broad access community colleges through four-year colleges and major universities in the U.S. and abroad, to graduate programs in education and divinity. Readers will find in these pages a wealth of new detail on the 'how' of institutionalizing ePortfolios, from first year experiences and bridge programs to designs for entire programs, to enhancements for high priority educational goals such as effective writing.”—Carol Geary Schneider, Lumina Fellow, and president emerita of the Association of American Colleges and Universities
