Initiatives in e-learning and teacher education across the UK and Europe (DfES, 2005, EC, 2001, HEFCE, 2007, DE, 2004, GTCNI, 2007) led to a unique collaboration between representatives from universities and government agencies engaging in a policy-making debate to address the development of a career-wide e-portfolio for teachers in Northern Ireland (NI). The theoretical underpinning embedded in the e-portfolio process lies in the concept of the ‘reflective practitioner’ (Dewey, 1933, Schön, 1987, DE, 2005) with technology assisting the cyclical recording of self and tutor evaluations against government defined competence goals in the NI Teacher Competence framework. The resultant six Principles for Teacher e-portfolios were piloted with a cohort of pre-service teachers completing a one year course. Positive results revealed the students were capable of garnering the required evidence and they could reflect effectively on their professional development within the existing course structure.
