Organization of Portfolio
SCROLL DOWN and read carefully
There are two options for how the ECTS 518 Portfolio may be completed. The documents required for the portfolio (all of the ECTS 518 assignments) may be: (1) put onto a CD or memory stick, or (2) posted on a personal web site.
As the basic purpose of this assignment is to encourage scholars to collect, store and update information and materials that can be used in support of their own teaching, the manner of collecting storing and retrieving materials will reflect the individuality of each scholar. A lot of teachers still use paper notebooks, and that is OK, I (the ECTS 518 instructor) need to be limit what I see of what the ECTS scholars do, to material that can be accessed via the internet.
The criteria for the two basic options are indicated below:
Include an index that lists all of the documents and media presentations on the CD. If you can make hot links from your index to each document please do so.
The CD or memory stick sent to the ECTS 518 course instructor should be a COPY of your original work as there are not sufficient resources available to mail back anything that is mailed to the ECTS 518 course.
Web Site Criteria
The home page of the Web site should indicate the scholar's name, the words "ECTS 518 Portfolio," the quarter in which the scholar is (or expects to be) officially enrolled into ECTS 518 at CSUSB, and a list of the names and numbers all of the completed ECTS 518 assignments, each of which is a hot link to that document.
NOTE: Scholars who have not yet devoloped the html and ftp skills to develope and maintain their own web site, may find the following link (recommended by scholar Rafael Negron) to be of interest:
Whatever option is selected for the portfolio, the format should be neat looking, unclutered, well orcanized and should facilitate easy access to all of the documents included as part of the portfolio. It is expected that the portfolio will continue to be a working resource to which additional materials can and will be added on a continuing basis.
