Learning Portfolio

A learning portfolio is an organized collection of past and current accomplishments and can be a valuable tool for assessing your capabilities. The development of a learning portfolio could provide you with:
  • the ability to reflect on your work and maintain a comprehensive resource for developing and achieving short-term and long-term goals;
  • readily available data for completing admission applications for graduate and professional schools, as well as writing resumes and preparing for job interviews;
  • access to an organized record of their lifetime educational history and the ability to demonstrate growth over time and;
  • using today's advancing technologies the opportunity to showcase your work via the use of flexible venues storing data, text, audio, video and graphics.
