Projects that challenged you, changed the way you thought about a subject, or those that broadened your expertise in any number of ways all belong in your Trinity portfolio.

Take a look at your content inventory to choose a paper, project, presentation or other class-related experience that was meaningful to you.

Ask yourself the following questions about the project, and take some notes for your portfolio post:

  • How much did you know about the subject before you started the project?
  • How did your understanding of the subject change during your project?
  • What new ideas did you have abut the subject when you were done with the project?
  • Now, consider your intended portfolio audience. What questions might that audience have about your work? Jot down some notes about that.

Remember that you don’t only have to include outstanding work in your portfolio. Assignments that you received a surprising (good or not-so-good!) response on and those that took you out of your comfort zone are all worth including in your portfolio, as long as your reflection addresses the overall importance of the experience.

You should now be well-equipped to compose a short reflection on your academic experience, and add this experience to your site.
