ePortfolio Readings & Resources
Thanks to the growing ePortfolio community, there are many resources, articles, books, and organizations available to help you get started. I've organized a small number of those resources here into Categories:
Initial Explorations, in-depth case studies, deeper Readings & Resources, additional campus case studies, ePortfolio Organizations & Groups, articles by Liz, and Videos.
Do you have additional suggestions? Have a publication you'd like me to highlight? Just let me know!

In-Depth Case Studies: What do ePortfolios Look Like at Scale?
Catalyst for Learning
Available on-line: http://c2l.mcnrc.org
Created by 24 campuses in the Connect to Learning project, this site demonstrates and deepens the value of ePortfolio to higher education. It offers data, practices and strategies, showing how ePortfolio can advance learning, deepen pedagogy and assessment, and support institutional change. Case studies are arranged by topic and also by institution. This is a rich and detailed resource.
Inter/National Coalition for Electronic Portfolio Research
Available on-line: ncepr.org
Facilitated by Kathleen Blake Yancey, Barbara Cambridge, and Darren Cambridge, this multi-year research project brings together 10 cohorts of campuses to study ePortfolio practices. Each cohort studies a key aspect of ePortfolio for three years. All of the cohort findings are public and available on the web.
