This paper examines the conceptual process of creating an electronic professional portfolio for faculty development. The characteristics of electronic professional portfolios and the benefits of electronic portfolio development are discussed. Additional topics covered include: collection and selection of portfolio contents; reflection on portfolio pieces; presentation formats; requisite technology skills; and portfolio applications. A chart presents corresponding stages of electronic portfolio development for various levels of teacher skill. The development of two instructors' electronic professional portfolios as part of a faculty technology leadership initiative and the use of those portfolios as part of their annual evaluation instruments is also described.
