An e-portfolio is one of the tools for monitoring and evaluating the professional activity of school teachers and their achievements. An e-portfolio can be used for teachers’ professional development. It provides openness and transparency of both teachers’ and educational institutions’ work. The purpose of the study is to analyze teachers' readiness to use e-portfolios for both self-evaluation of their own professional experience and continuous professional development. The article analyzes various approaches to the structure of e-portfolios based on the analysis of international experience, the legislation of Ukraine and the survey of teachers. The purpose, tasks, requirements of normative documents on the use of e-portfolios are generalized.The multi-level structure of an e-portfolio is defined and the requirements for its dynamic content are substantiated. Teachers' needs for advanced training in using a variety of IT tools for creating e-portfolios have been systematized. It has been determined that the use of e-portfolio can satisfy both the needs of evaluating the effectiveness of teachers’ work and the formation of self-esteem and reflection skills, facilitate teachers’ continuous professional development, dissemination of advanced pedagogical experience and teaching practices. Different types of e-portfolios have been analyzed. IT tools for creating an e-portfolio have been identified. The content of the corresponding educational module for teachers in the system of postgraduate pedagogical education has been substantiated. The content of a portfolio is defined by the goals of its creation. For teachers, the emphasis in e-portfolio creation is not on learning, as it is for students, but on professional activity, self-assessment, and marketing. The results can be teachers' understanding of why and how they have learned throughout their careers, the importance of reflection for future professional development.
