Dr. Kathleen Yancey
Kathleen Blake Yancey, the Kellogg W. Hunt Professor of English at Florida State University, directs the graduate program in Rhetoric and Composition Studies. A consultant on AAC&U’s VALUE project, she also co-directs the International Coalition on Electronic Portfolio Research <ncepr.org>, which has brought together over 50 institutions worldwide to document the learning that takes place inside and around electronic portfolios.
Yancey is also the author, editor or co-editor of over 65 chapters and refereed articles and ten books, several of which focus on reflection, portfolios, and/or assessment. Most notable in this regard are Portfolios in the Writing Classroom (1992), Assessing Writing across the Curriculum (1997), and Electronic Portfolios (2001). In the spring of 2009, her co-edited Electronic Portfolios 2.0 was released; it documents the electronic portfolio projects being developed on many US campuses both in general education programs and in various disciplinary contexts.
If there is a theme in her work, it’s the teaching and learning that is fostered through the reflective activities we see in both print and digital portfolios.
