A portfolio is an organized collection of evidence indicating what a person knows and is able to do regarding a particular academic discipline, topic, or area of occupational competence. Portfolios can provide proof of a learner’s growth and development of higher-order thinking skills and complex concepts: critical thinking, synthesis, problem solving, teamwork, etc. The session focuses on two products: a teacher portfolio to meet and exceed PERA guidelines and requirements and/or the development and testing of a CTE students' course and/or program portfolio to meet and exceed the rigor of national academic and technical content standards.
