Abstract

In this exploratory contribution, the author proposes a framework for re-mapping ePortfolio research around an emergent model of engagement with information. Through an anthropological lens, he casts ePortfolio implementation within communities of practice in complex networks of actors, artifacts, and flows. His work surveys extant approaches in the ePortfolio research, identifying gaps in the literature, towards an inclusive framework around a new model reflecting the changing relationship with information, grounding the theorizing in his practice, designing and teaching online graduate courses in Cultural and New Media Studies in Education.
