International Journal of ePortfolio, v2 n1 p113-124 2012

ePortfolios have been used in many disciplines for different purposes. In the following paper, I describe how I created and used an eportfolio as my tenure file over a five-year period. As the first tenure-track faculty member at Delaware County Community College to attain tenure through the use of an online tenure portfolio, the tenure eportfolio played many roles including as a summative, reflective, and showcase tool. Using an eportfolio for tenure promotion has become increasingly popular at my institution which now has an institutional eportfolio software package that all new tenure-track faculty use to create their online tenure files. This paper also discusses the advantages and disadvantages of using a prescribed eportfolio software package in creating tenure eportfolios.
