Topic outline

  • NOTE: These are pages for WAT Master's students who started their studies in 2016. For Portfolio page for 2017 students, see here!

    These pages provide you information about Personal Learning Portfolio (PLP) that all WAT degree students will do as part of their studies.

    The aim of the portfolio process is: 

    • To assess and reflect your summative learning, based on your Personal Study Plan (eHOPS) -> This also helps you to plan your future studies 
    • To learn to document your skills and knowledge
    • To do all this together with your fellow students (portfolio group) and your Aalto mentor

    The portfolio process runs throughout the entire Master's Programme, and you have to submit your final portfolio before graduating from our Master's Programme. 

    Majority of the work on portfolio is done individually as well as in so-called Portfolio Groups that were formed during the WAT Orientation Days. The groups must meet altogether 8 times during the portfolio process: five times i.e. after each period during first year, and three times during the second year. You must include a short reflection of your meeting as an Annex to your portfolio. For more details, see the portfolio instructions document below. 

    The portfolio process also includes meetings with your Aalto Mentor (a member of WAT staff). Timetable for those meetings is agreed separately with your mentor.  

    In order to keep track of your portfolio process, you must submit an updated version of your portfolio after each period during the first year. The deadline for submitting your portfolio is normally three weeks after the end of the period. The deadline for the first version of the portfolio is, however, only on 30.11.2016. Submit your portfolio through the Submission sub-page (requires Aalto login).
