An E-learning Portfolio

This e-learning portfolio is a selection of artifacts and reflections about educational technology and innovation, as practiced by Gary Bartanus, MET.

Gary holds a Master of Educational Technology degree from The University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, BC, Canada. He is an alumnus of UBC’s Faculty of Education and this world-renowned university is currently ranked as #1 in Canada and #9 in the world for its leading role in research and practice in the field of Education.

With a strong emphasis on current research and learning theories, Gary’s background includes a comprehensive and extensive body of work that demonstrates how he applies modern learning theories and uses various relevant technologies to improve and enhance traditional instructional design practices in both the classroom and online.

As the artifacts and reflections in this portfolio demonstrate, Gary has the experience and training to provide learners with the support they need as they get themselves ever increasingly involved in that natural partnership between their own learning processes and the various technologies that surround them.

Abilities, Skill Sets, and Knowledge Areas

This ePortfolio is divided into four core competency groups:
At the top of each “core competency” page is a brief description of the competency group followed by a section called “Estimated Levels of Proficiency” (see below). This section features a group of four circle counters that represent key aspects of the abilities, skills, or knowledge that comprise the competency groups, as demonstrated in the artifacts and reflections that are posted further down each page.

 Estimated Levels of Proficiency (based on reflective consideration of MET grades, peer feedback, and professional practice)


Expert: 99 to 100%


Exemplary: 97 to 98%


Proficient: 95 to 96%


Competent: 93 to 94%

Each number (percentage) represents my estimated level of proficiency in the abilities, skill sets, or knowledge areas that it represents.  Because the artifacts and reflections are based  on deep, reflective consideration of UBC MET Program grades, insightful peer feedback, and documented professional practice, the evidence they provide (of ability, skills, and knowledge) can be regarded as unambiguous and true.
