Introducing Folio into the Media 6 course, students can present themselves professionally to develop their public-facing professional profile on LinkedIn in the future. I have integrated Folio into assessment, part one involves an intial review of your skills and work experience and part two students add everything that is relevant to developing their careers into Folio. This includes qualifications, awards, sample work, completed projects, internships/work attachments, extra-curricular learning activities, volunteer and paid work to determine job-ready skills and begin drafting a CV.
Students utilise Folio to connect with their peers and teaching team in first year. Folio is a space where students can build their professional profile, share their work across the course key themes and also receive feedback to inform and develop creative practice.
Folio is now attached to part of the assessment within this course, capturing peer engagement through connecting, tags, likes and peer feedback (via comments).
