Portfolio Strategies: Lecture(3)
Like all college students, those who attend programs within Parsons School of Design Strategies (Parsons) are confronted with the challenge of integrating diverse and sometimes fragmented learning experiences into coherent bodies of knowledge. Unlike most students in traditional degree programs, however, Parsons students face an additional challenge as a result of the processes and media with which they work: that of articulating the value of competencies that are embedded inand often obscured bythe production of complex artifacts. In this lecture/workshop course, students will learn about knowledge assets and become skilled at identifying, highlighting and articulating the value of their competencies. The lecture portion of this course will introduce fundamental concepts including knowledge assets, human capital, and intellectual development. Workshop sessions are dedicated to the articulation of individual expertise and interests through the production of a personal portfolio, a portfolio management system, and essays. Students are expected to make use of lectures and workshops to help prepare them to implement and produce physical and digital professional materials, which are a culmination of their experiences and support each of their individual goals upon graduation.
