Portfolio Requirements for the Master of Science
in Instructional Technology

The MS in IT program requires an electronic portfolio to be uploaded and available for review within the ECU MyWeb server space. Please visit the student resources…Online Help & Electronic Portfolio Resources for IT Students  page for tutorial links for the development of the MS in IT electronic portfolio.

Include the following in your MS program portfolio:

  • Career Goals – For your career goal include a description, no more than a half page, double-spaced, in length that describes the type of instructional technology career for which you are preparing.

  • Instructional Design/Technology Philosophy Statement – Prepare a statement approximately one page in length, describing your philosophy of instructional design and technology

  • Resume 

  • Projects - Projects - Create a link for each of your projects corresponding to the MS - Instructional Technology Projects Page. Here is a link for the MS-Instructional Technology Portfolio Template so that you can see how these projects fit into the whole portfolio. You will need to create links from the projects page template to the MS in IT portfolio template. Include reflective statements for each of the core projects listed on the template (see more about these statements below).  These reflective statements can be development notes, personal reflections, or journal entries from your internship. Each product or artifact must include a reflective statement as a method for self-assessment. Reflective statements should describe the project, briefly summarize how it was developed, and how it is representative of your professional goals and objectives.  Note, you only need to include MS core projects (i.e., EDTC 6010, EDTC 6020, EDTC 6025, EDTC 6030, EDTC 6040, EDTC 6135, EDTC 6991, EDTC 7030, & EDTC 7040). Here is a listing of assigned Instructional Technology projects and corresponding required courses. MS - Instructional Technology portfolio committee members will have common web players for your projects, such as Flash, etc. If you have a project that requires a unique web player, you must provide a link to download this player on your portfolio. If you have any questions about this portfolio process, please contact Dr. Abbie Brown. brownab@ecu.edu
  • Reflective statements for each project or assignment - These can be development notes, personal reflections, or journal entries from internship. Each product or artifact must include a reflective statement as a method for self-assessment. Reflective statements should describe the following:

The summative evaluation describes the benefits and obstacles encountered for the culminating portfolio project.
