In E-Portfolios for Educational Leaders, Barbara Nicholson offers suggestions for educational administration programs aiming to reduce the theory-practice gap in the preservice preparation of school principals. Based on the standards of the Interstate School Leaders Licensure Consortium, the book's focus is both programmatic and individual in scope. At the program level, Nicholson examines strategies for reforming the field dimensions of preservice practice, requiring more interaction with practitioners in schools and encouraging their active participation in the preparation of principals. She also provides an in-depth discussion of conventional assessment practices and explores the reasons for shifting to a more student-centered process. The individual focus is on assisting graduate students who are constructing electronic portfolios as both a program exit requirement and a foundation for eventual performance appraisal. More a detailed, comprehensive narrative than a minimalist guide, E-Portfolios for Educational Leaders develops fully the conceptual rationale behind the program reforms it describes.
