Portfolios and ePortfolios


RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning), Portfolios and ePortfolios

Portfolios and ePortfolios are career self-management tools that can be useful to anyone who is experiencing a career transition; who wants to change occupations, or simply wants to discover their strengths, gaps and goals.  For example, they provide a bridge for immigrants experiencing barriers to employment due to a lack of Canadian experience.  Prior learning can be presented in a positive manner, with evidence of transferable skills.

The journey of building a portfolio or eportfolio is often more important than the final result  due to the personal growth and awareness that results from the participant exercises.  This course will concentrate on ePortfolios: how to build one and what it can do for you.

This presentation provides an overview of portfolios and eportfolios and how they can help you tell your story.
