This qualitative study is a continuation of a study that investigated the adoption and implementation of digital portfolios in the College of Education (COE) at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock (UALR). The study tracked progress from the early ideas that culminated in shopping for software that would meet the needs of the COE and National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) to the current status of having implemented the chosen software. Specifically measured are faculty surveys which summarize their perceptions which led to a list of suggestions and concerns. This needs assessment led to a focus group being formed which consists of representatives from each program in the COE. Participants in this session will be able to discuss where they are in the process of digital portfolios and network with colleagues which will likely benefit their educational institution.
