By end-of-day Tuesday, December 15, post your final portfolio to your blog as an attachment or a series of attachments.
I will look at your portfolio as a record of your “beginnings” as a tutor, your initial work and thinking that I hope you will build upon in the coming semesters.
Your final portfolio should include:
- An introduction (roughly 2 pages)
- Your (revised) observation reflection
- Your (revised) tutoring reflection (“Notes toward a philosophy”)
- A studio-project document
Basis Questions & Answers
What goes in the intro? Really, your intro can take almost any form, as long as you imagine as your audience your Writing Center colleagues — including me and next year’s new-tutor class–and you in some way motivate us to read the contents of your portfolio. What kinds of introductions motivate you to read a set of written works?
How much should I revise my reflection essays? Revise only as needed. Your reflection essays should reflect your initial thinking as a Writing Center tutor. If they already do that accurately, post them as they are.
What document should I select from my studio project? Post a handout, PPT, Prezi, app, video or anything else that that in some way represents/reflects the work you and your studio group has completed (so far). It need not be a comprehensive presentation; it can just represent/ reflect a part of your project, perhaps a part of your project you hope to build upon.
