Portfolios and ePortfolios

Portfolios and ePortfolios are tools that can be used by teachers of K-12, adult educators including ESL instructors, career advisors, life coaches and employment counsellors to help their students or clients in their process of learning, career/life decision making, job search or career development and promotion.

Portfolios and ePortfolios can also be used by students, job seekers and anyone trying to make sense of their lives and choices.
