Praise for The Learning Portfolio, Second Edition "John Zubizarreta understands students, faculty, and teaching and learning. This book will help both novices and senior faculty to use portfolios to increase their own understanding and to enrich their students' learning."—Wilbert McKeachie, author, McKeachie's Teaching Tips "With fourteen new chapters featuring exemplary uses of learning portfolios, this second edition is like a brand new book. But it preserves all the recommendations for implementing learning portfolios that made the first edition so useful to faculty."—Linda B. Nilson, director, Office of Teaching Effectiveness and Innovation, Clemson University, and author, Teaching at Its Best and The Graphic Syllabus and the Outcomes Map "The Learning Portfolio represents a clear, organized, reflective, and effective way to direct and document student learning. It is a must-have for any faculty member or university administrator concerned about demonstrating attainment of important learning outcomes, and for faculty developers assisting instructional staff in designing effective and engaging courses."—James E. Groccia, director, Biggio Center for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning, Auburn University, and former president, Professional and Organizational Development Network in Higher Education "The Learning Portfolio provides a credible tool for assessing and improving student learning—critical aspects when documenting program and institutional effectiveness. John Zubizarreta's clear and pragmatic discussion of the learning portfolio empowers all who care about student learning to succeed in ways that can make a transformative difference in the lives of students."—Mary Lou Higgerson, vice president for academic affairs and dean, Baldwin-Wallace College, and coauthor, Effective Leadership Communication "If we want students to become self-directing learners, they must become more aware of themselves as learners. There is no other tool that has more power to contribute to this process than well-designed learning portfolios."—L. Dee Fink, author, Creating Significant Learning Experiences
