The Early Childhood ePortfolio provides a space to collect and store your work as you proceed through the program. You will later select evidence from among your course assignments to document that you have met the Minnesota Standards of Effective Practice for Beginning Teachers. You can include digital pictures, and video clips or audio files to document your learning and student teaching experiences. When you graduate you will take with you a portfolio that represents your best work. The portfolio may be useful to you as you apply for employment or for graduate school in the future. You can select which specific documents to share with potential employers.
Overview of ePortfolio: In your portfolio you will compile your best work that demonstrates your acquisition and application of knowledge and skills needed to become an effective early childhood professional. The documents you include will provide evidence of your competence for licensure in early childhood and special education, based on state and national standards. Framework for ePortfolio This ePortfolio is based on the standards required for Minnesota licensure in Early Childhood and Early Childhood Special Education. Specific requirements are included for the ten Minnesota Standards of Effective Practice (SEP) for Beginning Teachers. These state standards are based on national standards, entitled INTASC (Interstate New Teacher Assessment and Support Consortium) Standards.
Minnesota and many other states base their requirement for initial teacher licensure on these standards. Each of the ten major standards includes several specific sub-standards, which you will learn about in your courses. In addition, there are specific requirements for licensure standards for Early Childhood and for Early Childhood Special Education. The five blocks of coursework required for the Unified Early Childhood program are listed below. In each block, you will be provided with specific information about the documents which should be uploaded to your ePortfolio. Space is also provided for other professional documentation, including your application materials, documentation of scores on required licensure tests, attendance at professional meetings, etc.
