This passage struck me: "We desperately need a discipline whose sole purpose is to investigate, experiment, and create meanings for this new electronic world of information. That is the role of the digital humanities today."

At an individual level, digital teaching portfolio offers a context for articulating one’s teaching philosophy, reflecting upon one’s teaching, documenting evidence of teaching accomplishments for present and future employers, and through which, one’s pride and esteem for teaching, as well as teaching practices could be enhanced.
