My career as an educational developer began when I was hired for a 4-month contract to work on a teaching portfolio initiative at the University of British Columbia’s teaching and learning centre. That project started¬†my interest in portfolios. And though that initiative wrapped¬†up a long time ago, my interest in portfolios has remained alive.

Below are some workshops/webinars I have participated in related to portfolios.
