In lieu of a Midterm Exam, you will create a Learning Outcomes Portfolio that demonstrates your mastery of all of the Learning Outcomes in this course. Please review the Learning Outcomes before beginning this Portfolio.
You will find and/or create artifacts that demonstrate your mastery of the outcomes. Each artifact will be accompanied by a rationale that explains how the artifact demonstrates your mastery and provides context for the artifact. Each rationale should be approximately 1/2 page in length.
You are encouraged to use examples of your work from the course as artifacts. This could include copies of your discussions, pdf. files, screen shots, doc. files, or any other work for the course. When you use an example of your work from the course, you must include information regarding where the artifact came from (Activity number, discussion post title, etc.) and date. This will enable you to save and prep the articles for consolidation before posting them in Module 9.
You may also find or create new artifacts to demonstrate your mastery; these could include relevant images, YouTube videos, news articles, or other types of artifacts. However, it is imperative that you cite where the artifact came from as well as fully explain how this artifact relates to and demonstrates your mastery of the Learning Outcome
