My students used to keep a bulky three-ring binder as a portfolio of their creative writing pieces, and there is still something to an in-your-hand portfolio. For my classes, I felt that it was more cost effective to move to digital portfolios. There are many ways to do this, but I’m going to focus on Livebinders.
Portfolios are handy tools. Many universities require their students to cultivate portfolios throughout their studies, and some professionals rely on them in order to secure future employment.
