Abstract

In this paper, the author uses data from a multi-site case study to demonstrate the utility of Engeström's (1987) Cultural Historical Activity Theory as an analytic and interpretive framework to investigate the complex act of portfolio creation as practiced in accreditation-seeking institutions. The data highlights how the portfolio task is influenced by tensions arising from the task and the surrounding network of activity. She argues that a sociocultural frame, such as CHAT, is a viable tool to raise awareness of this network and to understand the impact it has on the central task and the students involved in portfolio creation.
