Abstract

Examines the role of prior learning assessment, the portfolio method specifically, in workforce development. Despite the continuous evolution of work, organizational provisions for career development have not necessarily progressed to reflect advancing demands on workers. Organizations may better enable the contemporary workforce to embrace the shift from employment to employability through encouraging enhancement of both personal and professional growth. Incorporation of the portfolio process promises to augment organizational learning and development approaches by more effectively supporting workers in taking greater responsibility for managing their own careers.
