PLA-200 Introduction to Portfolio Development

This course builds upon the knowledge and reflection acquired in PLA-100: Introduction to Prior Learning Assessment. This course will help students identify courses and subject areas that best match their selected college-level knowledge base. Students will plan each segment of their portfolio and will use course objectives to create a detailed outline. This outline will delineate topics for development based upon the knowledge, theoretical understanding, and applied learning gained from work, community, and personal experiences. As a result of this course, students will be prepared to complete their written portfolio. It is important to understand that this course prepares students for portfolio development, even though only the outline will be complete at the end of these eight weeks. Keep in mind that it prepares students for any future portfolio development as well. If, later on, the student wishes to create a new portfolio, he/she will not have to take this course again. What students learn in this course will apply to any portfolio they wish to complete in the future.

Advisory: This course is required for students who are hoping to earn credit through the portfolio process. Success in this course will depend partly on how well the student expresses him/herself. Therefore, students are strongly advised to have taken ENC-101: English Composition I and ENC-102: English Composition II (or their equivalents) before taking this introduction to prior learning assessment.
