It facilitates students’ reflection on their goals, the learning process and their individual growth.
Helps students to draw connections between different courses and learning that occurs beyond the classroom.
Underscores the continuity of learning that occurs before and beyond the college experience.
Highlights multiple literacies
Provides a venue for building a dynamic, on-going resume.
Encourages dialogue between students and faculty to determine which projects and writing assignments best represent a student’s linguistic and cultural competency and that should, therefore, be included in their archive.
