Shows students how to understand what type of portfolio is called for, recognize the material most appropriate for inclusion, and submit a portfolio that shows learning. This guide does not approach portfolios as the driving force of a course; rather, it teaches students who are asked to submit portfolios - with or without direct instructor supervision - how to construct successful portfolios. Anyone looking to compile a portfolio.
