Portfolios for learning: teachers' professional development through M-level portfolios

By Karen Turner and Shirley Simon

The philosophy that underpins our portfolios is identified and fundamental tenets related to the literature in the field.

A rationale for the research is provided, methods of data collection and analysis are explained and findings are presented. The chapter ends with a discussion of issues that will require our future attention
