The portfolio accounts for the most working hours within this course. The portfolio reflects the knowledge, skills and attitudes (KSA) you have gained, and presents qualitative and quantitative evidence of them. The KSA need to be applicable to product development, but do not need to be product-development-specific, and the evidence for them can be drawn from studies, work, hobbies and/or other life experiences. What is important is that these KSA truly reflect your strengths - ideally the portfolio acts as a raw material bank for you to draw on when creating professional portfolios or job applications.
In the portfolio, you should aim to showcase 2 knowledge areas, 2 skills and 2 attitudes. These knowledge, skills and attitudes should be the headlines, with at least half-a-page of text under every heading, including qualitative and quantitative evidence for these skills. In essence, these include case examples and numbers of the experiences in which you've gained expertise on the topic or that showcase you using what you've learned.
Instructions for the portfolio will be given in the 18.2. workshop. You should prepare a draft by 28.4. (2 pdf spreads), to which you'll get peer and teacher feedback. After this, a 5-10 minute pitch presentation will be prepared from May 20th or 27th. The final, written portfolio is due June 10th.
