CED 555 - Professional Portfolio Experience Week 1

This was our first week of CED 555 - Professional Portfolio Experience. This class will help us create our final Professional Portfolio that is required at the completion of our Graduate Program. This week we were required to research examples of other professional portfolios. We needed to create an annotated bibliography and a matrix that summarizes our results. Here is a link to the google doc that I created for this assignment.

This assignment was beneficial because it gave us a better understanding of what should be included in a professional portfolio and how it should be set up. I was really glad to discover Dr. Barbara Schroeder’s Technology Teaching Portfolio . Dr. Barbara Schroeder is a professor in the Department of Educational Technology at Boise State University. The website that she created is actually a technology teaching portfolio template. This template will be quite useful, especially since I plan on utilizing the same ISTE standards for my own portfolio. Natashia Sylvia’s Portfolio was also beneficial. She utilized Dr. Barbara Schroeder’s portfolio template to create her own portfolio.

I look forward to creating my portfolio which will demonstrate all of the hard work and accomplishments that I have had throughout this graduate program. It will be a great way to reflect on and share my thoughts and resources with others.


  1. I feel the same Carl. I'm glad we got to do this assignment because now I really have an idea of what can go into an online portfolio. Before this week, I was kind of nervous. I did not really know what we would be doing in this class or how this whole portfolio would be put together.

  2. This week's assignment was beneficial. It was interesting to see how much differently they are and can be set up. I'm still nervous about it, but it was good to see what looked like to be as good and not so great examples of work. i didn't look at any template sites, even though plenty came up. I'm going to have to take a look at Dr. Schroeder's site. It might put me a little more at ease too. I do like the idea of compiling my work in one place.

  3. The Dr. Schroeder's template gives us a great head start on what we need to do in the class. In what ways do you see changing the template to better suit your needs?
