Transition Portfolio Trainings for Teachers

Transition Portfolios are a relatively new tool in the transition toolboxes of Indiana's secondary teachers and administrators. To explore how portfolios are used and how they can be helpful for transition-age students as they plan for employment, CCLC's Indiana Secondary Transition Resource Center (INSTRC) led a series of five topic-based webinars in spring 2021

  • March 2 Here I Am, Let's Come Up with a Plan!  Overview. Learn what Transition Portfolios can do for your students.
  • March 3 Look at Me! So Much to See  Find out how to capture information about a student's learning characteristics.
  • March 4 The Things I Achieve, You Wouldn't Believe  Recording and capturing a student's academic skills and achievements.
  • March 8 Job One, Job Two, Finding the Right Job for You!  Recognizing and recording student employability skills.
  • March 12 Hop on Top, Cream of the Crop! Learn and practice the step-by-step how-tos by navigating through several Transition Portfolio examples. 

The webinars were sponsored by the Indiana Department of Education, Office of Special Education.
