  • Like functional skills...17 page reports300+, more comingIn 1994, Human Resources and Skills Development Canada launched a national research study, the Essential Skills Research Project (ESRP), to examine how the essential skills were used in various jobs. More than 3,000 interviews have now been conducted across Canada with people working in some 180 occupations.The ESRP initially focused on occupations requiring a secondary school diploma or less and on-the-job training.
  • Like Careers Wales Online, eFolio MinnesotaInspiration from MOSEP

  • Exemplar portfolio: RommuelParagasVM Immigrant – young male (life story). Many skills, but lacks qualificationsProfile Page: Professional PageDrafts and documentationMultimediaRecently themedLogged out contentLogged in: enter course (Group)Course layout: -Orientation/5 steps-Content types: presentation, survey/quiz, (building) task, optional enhancementDemonstrating capabilities as part of course:-Views, navigation blocks, images-Embeds: YouTube, Screenr, SlidecastConnections to Moodle: survey, quiz, glossary, Help-under construction-moving away from Mahara Users book
  • “We may not be smart, but we’re learning!”Tried to cram too much in...classic error2 key audiences: -those with paper portfolios/well formed resumes-those withoutI prefer the videos: clearer, easier to make
