LFAC 301 - Life Achievement Portfolio Development (Formerly: Life Achievement Portfolio Preparation)


Prerequisite(s): ENGL 112 Written English and Literary Studies II  
This course guides students through a thoughtful and reflective review of their prior learning experiences in order to identify college level learning in a manner that facilitates accurate assessment. This is accomplished through the development of an online e-portfolio that is submitted at the end of the semester for evaluation by Mercy College faculty. The portfolio is structured in such a way as to go beyond a narrative of experiences. Students must distinguish between experience and achievement and recognize the interconnection between learning, practice, theory, and academic modes of thought. The portfolio documents student learning that was acquired from life and work experience. Students may earn up to 27 additional credits toward their Mercy College degree program through the evaluation of the learning as documented in the students’ portfolios. Permission from the Office of Educational Assessment is required for registration.  Offered online only
