College of Education Graduate Portfolio
Dear College of Education Graduate Student:
Greetings! In Dallas Baptist University’s quest for meaningful assessment of graduate students, the process of creating a portfolio is explained in the attached College of Education Graduate Portfolio Manual. The portfolio allows the student to present information about themselves as learners and to document growth over a period of time.
The portfolio should be a collection of artifacts accompanied by self-reflections that not only help the learner to understand and extend learning, but also invite the reader of the portfolio to gain insights about the learner. Please refer to the Portfolio Manual for appropriate procedures to follow in your preparation of your portfolio.
All graduate students in the College of Education are required to prepare and present a portfolio to the Educator Preparation Board prior to graduation. Students must register for 6010 (Professional Portfolio) during the semester in which they will present their portfolio. The Educator Preparation Board is a group of experienced and widely successful educators from Dallas Baptist University and the metroplex. Practicing teachers, administrators, consultants, superintendents, guidance directors, personnel directors, and Educational Region Service Center personnel, as well as DBU professors and administrators volunteer their time for this highly selective process. The Educator Preparation Board serves as the College of Education Graduate Programs advisory board and meets three times a year to assess graduate students' professional portfolios.
During the fall and spring semesters, a date is publicized for a Portfolio Workshop. The Program Directors will attend, review the portfolio manual on how to prepare a portfolio, discuss portfolio components, and provide guidelines for presentation and delivery.
Students will present their portfolio to the Educator Preparation Board at DBU's Dallas campus.
