Abstract

The teacher education programs at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC) and its professional community have undergone substantial changes, as developing and sustaining interventions for systemic impact involve changes in culture, policy, and practice. This chapter discusses the progress, challenges, and changing dynamics associated with sustaining an ePortfolio. An ePortfolio is an integral part of a Web-based Education Accountability System (EAS) developed and implemented by the author and the Department of Education to facilitate community-based teaching and learning, to help address national and state accreditation mandates, and to ensure continual improvements.
