1 Fostering Self-Determined Behaviors through ePortfolios: A student-driven eportfolio initiative and study

2 “To be self-determined is to endorse one’s actions at the highest level of reflection. When one is self- determined, people experience a sense of freedom to do what is interesting, personally important, and vitalizing.” -Ryan and Deci

3 Richard Ryan and Edward Deci

4 Autonomous Behavior To be autonomous means to act in accord with one’s self

5 Autonomous Behavior It means feeling free and volitional in one’s actions.

6 Autonomous Behavior When autonomous, people are fully willing to do what they are doing.

7 Autonomous Behavior They embrace the activity with a sense of interest and commitment.

8 Autonomous Behavior Their actions emanate from their true sense of self

9 Autonomous Behavior so they are being authentic.

10 Controlled Behavior When controlled, people act without a sense of personal endorsement.

11 Controlled Behavior Their behavior is not an expression of the self for it is subjugated to the controls.

12 Controlled Behavior In this condition, people can reasonably be described as alienated.

13 Autonomous = Authenticity Controlled = Alienation Edward L. Deci, Why We Do What We Do, Understanding Self-Motivation, (1996) New York, New York, Penguin Books

20 As I begin to work on my ePortfolio I began to understand how this could be beneficial to anyone. An ePortfolio is a living showcase of your work. It is an easy way to store all your projects and showcase them for others to see. It also gives a personal touch that something like a resume can't. ePortfolios allow you to elaborate extensively on what work you have done including writing reflections on what you did. You can also display class projects and things you have written.
