The Use of Portfolios in Leadership Education
Olsen, Paul E.
Journal of Leadership Education, v7 n3 p20-27 Win 2009
This paper discusses the benefits of using student portfolios in undergraduate leadership education at Saint Michael's College. There appears to be a natural link between the use of portfolios as a tool to facilitate and document leadership growth and development. The Business Administration and Accounting Department at Saint Michael's College adopted the portfolio concept to provide students with a vehicle for introspection, self-reflection, and to learn from successes and failures as they provide evidence of satisfying the business department's goals for graduating students and document their growth and development as leaders.
