The Learning Portfolio is where you will tell your Parsons story. If you have questions or would like to learn more about the many ways you can design your portfolio, be sure to visit the Student Resources + Support site at portfolio.newschool.edu/studentsupport. But before you do, be sure to read the About pages under Courses and Topics in the menu bar and in the Links section of the footer, as well as the other three posts found on the homepage.
As a student at The New School, you can create as many blogs as you wish. But when you first registered for your Learning Portfolio at portfolio.newschool.edu, a portfolio/blog was created for you with your Net. Id. at the end of the URL, e.g. http://portfolio.newschool.edu/YourNetId. Hopefully, that’s the blog you’re reading right now. Have a look at the address bar for confirmation. It’s important that you use that blog—that URL—as your Learning Portfolio. It makes it possible for your instructors and classmates to find your Learning Portfolio. To learn about privacy settings, see the Help menu.
The Learning Portfolio is a tool with which you will engage throughout your education at Parsons (and perhaps beyond). The focus of the Learning Portfolio is on reflection, on looking across your many courses and semesters and the various assignments and projects throughout the curriculum. The portfolio is a way for you to examine your own progress and performance, to share your work with others, and to tell a story about your time on campus (New York, Paris, and elsewhere).
