Description of Program

Leadership development is a key collegiate outcome for both undergraduate and graduate students. A digital environment can help facilitate students' leadership development. When those who lead, teach, and learn are inspired, a community of practice is formed. Portraiture Education employs digital exemplars for exploring and inspiring leadership education.

Abstract

This poster serves as an instructional leadership canvas for how to create an authentic forum via the use of artifacts for developing leadership. This poster illustrates portraiture methodology as the palette for memorializing and narrating the lived experiences of educational leadership. Portraiture is a relatively new research methodology that includes aspects of narration, ethnography, and phenomenology for examining the shared experiences of individuals. Portraiture education employs personal artifacts via a digital storyteller’s online canvas for presenting authentic educational experiences. Narration and exemplar artifacts are illustrated and examined for exploring innovative curricular design, interdisciplinary teaching and learning, and the conditions required for creating a community of practice that supports all learners. The utilization of artifacts provides authentic exemplars that educational leaders can utilize with teachers for exploring reflective practice and supporting a culture for learning. The use of authentic artifacts serves as a storyteller’s canvas for presenting the blending of disparate disciplines to promote innovative instructional design. The experiences presented resulted in the creation and establishment of welcoming, innovative learning environments that consider the social, emotional needs of learners, and provide multiple modalities for learning. Utilizing artifacts through portraiture methodology creates an interactive, ongoing research forum that presents the shared journeys of learners, teachers, leaders, parents, and community members to create “portraits” of meaningful educational experiences.
