I need my teachers to learn

I was sent this link and immediately thought how appropriate for e-Portfolio thinking. But it's not only a case of learning the technical competencies. More importantly, teachers must learn or understand how new teaching and learning strategies can enhance so many aspects of education, both for themselves, their line-managers and, of course, our students.

From job satisfaction, pride of ownership, certainty through collaboration, deeper understanding and effective communication all aspects of learning can become a richer and more rewarding experience.

In terms of eFolio it is time that tutors and administrators realised that e-Portfolio thinking has rapidly moved on in the last 5-10 years. No longer is the e-Portfolio just an institutional assessment tool or an aid to CPD. If learning is to be owned by the student, then the e-Portfolio is just the place to display and justify one's efforts to a variety of audiences. eFolio is designed for just this task.
