What is a Digital Portfolio?

Portfolios are used for evaluating competence when employing teachers and researchers. They can also be used in development discussions and job evaluations. A portfolio covers all the areas of work: research, teaching and management. The aim is to record one’s know-how, strengths and perception on development. The portfolio is a document drawn up by the applicant where he/she presents, evaluates and records skills and merits. Also professional expertise is documented in the portfolio, and the whole working experience (research, teaching, management, etc.) is scrutinized. The portfolio consists of one’s work history, principles, production, development ideas for the future, feedback from students and collegues, as well as self assessment. Adding images and text makes it more personal.
