Support

The process of curating the connected collection - making meaning through reflection and thereby developing deeper, more intentional identities as learners - requires thoughtful student action guided by well-informed faculty and staff and supported by a broad coalition of college stakeholders.

Early start

Professional Development Recognition Programme

It is easy to add to and everything was in one place.

Nurse

The appraisal was fuller and showed a better level of constructive interaction and purposeful review.

Nurse

Nurses are gradually shifting to keeping portfolios updated throughout the 3 years and easier sharing with me for review. The appraisal focuses on how they are going to improve with easy visibility of relevant goals.

Nurse Educator

Much more efficient. Much more transparent for the nurse and appraiser.

Manager

There was more insightful manager feedback.

Assessor

Loved not having to carry a heavy portfolio, keeping it secured.
