A Portfolio involves intensive self-reflection to identify, document, organize and demonstrate the learning gained from life experiences.
A Portfolio is a purposeful selection of work, presented in a way that demonstrates and celebrates the story of your learning, gifts, talents and goals.
It is most often a collection of materials, pictures, work samples, life stories, drawings, and other documents.
Just as human beings are each unique, no two portfolios will ever be the same. Some portfolios are targeted to a very specific purpose, such as gaining credit for a particular course or obtaining a desired job. A holistic portfolio is designed to celebrate the whole person, and to draw out as much learning as possible from all areas of the individual's life.
