Building Your Portfolio: Where to Start

Presented by:  Lorie Brown

If you are looking to transition into instructional design, are already in it, or want to be a freelancer, you might have been advised to have a portfolio. Where do you start?

It takes planning. By the end of this session, you will have a practical and tactical plan on how to build YOUR portfolio. Here is what we will discuss.

  • Why do I need a portfolio?
  • What should I include and exclude?
  • Get inspired!
  • What platforms are available?
  • How about some free resources?
  • Examples of projects and portfolios
