Supporting workshops – Generic Knowledge and Skills, portfolio

What’s the aim of my portfolio? How do I get started? How do I present my portfolio at the half-time? How does Mahara work?
These are some of the questions that are addressed in the portfolio workshops that the PhD program offers.

Question hour with course leader Olga Göransson.

This hour will be devoted to any questions you might have, for example about; how you are meant to work with your portfolio, the 12 categories and what to document in each of them, how to make a good viewing page, the purpose of the Generic knowledge and skills course, etc. We will adapt the content to your questions – beginners and experiences users are all welcome.
In preparation for this session you are expected to study the information material about the portfolio course, available at:


Web-tool Mahara hands-on (Matthias Bank).

The session will start with a short presentation of how to create entries and journals and how to build a viewing page based on these. However, the main aim is for you to get hands-on time in Mahara, working individually with your portfolio, while having the opportunity to ask questions.
