Participants in our non-credit certificate programs complete final portfolios that showcase their new skills and apply them to whatever projects they're working on. This workshop session is designed to help you make sure you're meeting the final portfolio criteria. You'll participate in peer review processes, get feedback and fresh perspectives, and come away with everything you need to submit your final portfolio.
By the end of this program, students will:
- Use a range of brainstorming and storyboarding techniques to showcase their work;
- Participate in peer review activities and both give and receive constructive criticism on their portfolio drafts;
- Create a portfolio format that will assist them in further professional development.
