Full program description

This is to cover your inital portfolio review at FGCU. 

A portfolio process is a way for you to demonstrate what you already know and have accomplished based on significant life experience. A portfolio is a detailed written narrative with supporting documentation (sample work products, professional writing samples, workplace evaluations, letters of recommendations, certificates, etc.) that showcases your previous learning and knowledge. Portfolio development requires a great deal of writing, so college-level writing skills are a necessity. 

When you create your portfolio, you will reflect on your life experiences and prior learning to connect it to specific FGCU course(s) and the course learning outcomes or competencies. A successful portfolio, students demonstrate knowledge equivalent to college-level student for each course learning outcome and document their experience to demonstrate that the learning required for credit occurred.
