The teaching portfolio of an education student

2005. No. 4. P. 174–189 [issue contents]
The new goals that are emerging in the course of the modernization of education demand changes in the form and content of pedagogical training. One of the tools for the professional training of an educator, very common now in Western higher education, is the teaching portfolio of a student. It enables the student to efficiently plan and evaluate the process and results of his or her studies. The portfolio is an indicator of the readiness of the future teacher to engage in independent professional activities. The article considers the teaching portfolio of an alumna of Kalamazoo College (Michigan, USA). The general structure of the portfolio is described, principal sections are quoted, comments are given that explain how the use of the portfolio changes the learning process of a student and makes professional training more efficient. The authors arrive at the conclusion that it is desirable to introduce the student teaching portfolio in this country, and that it is possible to flexibly adapt it to the particular features of pedagogical training in Russia.
