Your task is to write a weekly portfolio reflecting upon your learnings from the prior week. In your portfolio you will identify: 1. The learning outcomes and module/topic of the course; 2. A description of your experience, including reading samples or records; 3. Your learning from your experiences; 4. Any supporting documentation of prior or current learning. Instructions for completing the portfolio 1. Type your name and student id at the top of the page in the header section. 2. You can then delete this first section, save the file so that it can be used each week, and concentrate on writing your weekly portfolio. 3. Each learning outcome and the topics appropriate for the learning outcome have been included as the first column of portfolio table on the next page. You should review these columns and make changes as the course progresses and you gain more familiarity with the learning outcomes and course content. You will find that you will progressively elaborate on the content of the second, third and fourth columns as you work through each of the weeks of the course. 4. Appreciate it takes time to complete the portfolio therefore you must think always of what is required and be taking notes to update your portfolio as you read, study videos, or undertake other course related activities. You are expected to be working 12 to 16 hours each week on this course so you have plenty of time to get the portfolio right! 5. The portfolio will be discussed in the course online videos and tutorials – listen carefully and you may find the portfolio is easier to complete than it first appears. 6. You may disagree with the allocation of the learning outcomes to the topics in the portfolio table. This is your right and you are free to move things around as you become more familiar with the portfolio and the course material. 7. At the beginning of the course all of the learning outcomes may be not appropriate for the first week, so you should reflect upon what you believe is required from the portfolio for the first week. As the weeks progress then you will find that you will add more learning outcomes. The content of the first weekly learning portfolio table in this file includes all of the topics and reading samples to save your time in typing. 8. At the end of the course you should review your weekly portfolios and then consolidate them into a single submission. This is the assessment that gets marked. Since the objective of the portfolio is to show your learning journey as well as your reflections then you should not be surprised to find that your opinions have changed during the course. You do not have to change your portfolios from prior weeks. Weekly Portfolio Learning Table Topic and reading samples. Your personal learning outcomes from this course.
