Portfolio PLAR

Portfolios are often a creative outlet for learners to show their learning in diverse and relevant ways. Creating a portfolio is a process of identifying what the purpose of the portfolio is, reflecting on your learning, analyzing it in relation to the portfolio's purpose and compiling evidence that shows you meet the criteria.

Reflecting on learning experiences is futher broken down to student's personal, professional and educational life to identify skills, knowledge and abilities from life experiences. Evidence of learning is organized into "ports" of learning.  These sections are edited in relation to the outcomes and criteria being assessed (depending on purpose of the portfolio).

The finished product can be either electronic or paper based and the audience for the portfolio could be yourself or friends and family (showcase portfolio), prospective employers (employment portfolio), licensing bodies (professional portfolio),or university faculty (academic portfolio).
