Students admitted to the Master’s degree in Instructional Systems Development – Training Systems, beginning with the Fall 2012 semester, will be required to complete a professional portfolio. This requirement replaces the current comprehensive exam requirement.
The purpose of this requirement is to provide students an opportunity to demonstrate what they have learned in their coursework and the program. It also provides students, employers, clients, colleagues, etc. with tangible evidence of our graduates’ knowledge, skill, abilities and competencies. Portfolios can be a wonderful career tool that may assist graduates in getting jobs, promotions, new clients, and other professional opportunities.
The semester that you apply for graduation is when your portfolio is due.
When you are ready to share your portfolio please contact Dr. Williams at email@example.com.
