A portfolio is a powerful and convincing way to demonstrate your achievements to future employers over and above the standard résumé.
Where am I now? Where do I want to be? How do I get there?
The portfolio process is unique to each learner, and the presentation of the evidence of learning is equally as unique. This evidence of knowledge and skills can be a powerful and convincing way to demonstrate your achievements. Collecting tangible evidence of your skills and knowledge throughout your program is a good way to become aware of your own development.
A portfolio approach to learning is a process and a practice that allows you to know and talk about yourself as a learner, profile your skilled self, and highlight how your learning transfers from one setting to another in order for you to achieve your life, work, and learning goals.
