“To live is to choose. But to choose well, you must know who you are and what you stand for, where you want to go and why you want to get there.” - Kofi Annan "Wisdom is defined as the competence in, intention to, and application of, critical life experiences to facilitate the optimal development of self and others" - Webster Dictionary(2010)
9 Questions Activity What are your favourite types of movies? If you won $1,000,000, what would you do with it? If you doodle, what do you draw … or what would you draw if you doodled? What have been your favourite jobs? What motivates you to do your best? Who do you most admire in life and why? If you ran the world, what changes would you make? What has brought you the most success? In what do you believe the most?

Peer Coaching Skills/Knowledge baseline …. What specific skills did you bring to the experience that you knew would be useful What knowledge did you have (about the event, experience, activity, yourself, etc?) before you began the experience. What was your attitude and level of interest as you approached the experience? What were your expectations or assumptions going into the experience?
Peer Coaching Skills and Knowledge gained … Have you confirmed any skills (eg. problem-solving, construction, team skills) Have you discovered anything new about yourself (an attitude shift, a new awareness) What do you know now that you didn’t before Was there anything that you found you didn’t know as well as you thought? Have you anything that you now want to learn more about?
So what? How does this translate to my daily life? How do I become more intentional in becoming my true authentic self?
Discuss your Goals…… Commitment OR Offer/Gift OR Request
Words from NSCC employees after completing the 30-hr course Introduction to Portfolio Learning I learned that portfolio is not a product with a resume … it is a window to our lives. I learned that events and experiences in my life are what make me who I am … I am the portfolio. - Charlie Campbell
[I realized] that I am learning so often and in such meaningful ways that what I was struggling with was identifying the ‘learning moment’ … - Andrew Mooney I used to think of Portfolio as a noun, something that says who I am. Now I see that portfolio is a state of being … that makes me aware of who I am, how I got here, what I have to offer … and connects me to the place in time at which I currently stand.” - Andrew Mooney Words from NSCC employees after completing the 30-hr course Introduction to Portfolio Learning
“I’m the portfolio“ … that’s something I will take with me for the rest of my journey, and something that can only make me a better instructor and help students in there journeys. I've learned that the new roll out of portfolio for NSCC is something that I can be a big part of …” -Charlie Campbell Words from NSCC employees after completing the 30-hr course Introduction to Portfolio Learning
“When I signed up for the Portfolio course I thought we would be organizing relevant material related into a binder. I learned: I am my portfolio; all my skills, strengths, goals, abilities, interests, outlooks, beliefs, accomplishments make up who I am. [it’s] up to me how I present myself to others. Binders, cd’s, blogs, web pages, professionally printed booklets … [The course] has made me more aware of the learning aspects of teaching, and the objectives I should be looking for and/or implementing in the course to enhance the learning [for students].” - Mark Boudreau Words from NSCC employees after completing the 30-hr course Introduction to Portfolio Learning
