"Learning Portfolios" As A Tool For Competency Development
Location: Dewberry Hall
The use of the Blackboard "portfolio tool" appears to be an underutilized resource at Mason compared to other settings of higher education. When designed and used properly, this tool has been demonstrated to be a significant resource in promoting a habit of self-directed, life-long learning as it effectively promotes the development of relevant competencies. With an increasing emphasis by programs focusing on competency-based, experiential learning, the "Learning Portfolio" is a type of portfolio that has proven to be an effective tool to organize, measure, and monitor a studentâs learning. It provides an effective method to document the resources that a student has found helpful, their reflections on their learning; their instructors' feedback, and the level of their progress over time.
