Two components from the ITA Portfolio Guide’s 10 key components of learning statements that can help individuals prepare their own learning statements are:
Identify specific learning outcomes – This component requires individuals to clearly articulate the skills, knowledge, and competencies they have gained through their learning experiences. It is important to identify specific outcomes, rather than just general statements about learning, as this helps to demonstrate the depth and breadth of an individual’s learning. To prepare for this component, individuals can review their learning materials, such as course syllabi, textbooks, and notes, and identify the specific topics they have studied and the skills they have developed. They can also use reflection techniques, such as journaling or discussing their learning with peers, to help identify their learning outcomes.
Explain the relevance of the learning outcomes – This component requires individuals to explain why the learning outcomes they have identified are relevant to their personal and/or professional goals. This helps to demonstrate the value and significance of their learning, and how it can be applied in practical settings. To prepare for this component, individuals can consider their personal and professional goals and how their learning outcomes align with these goals. They can also research industry trends and job requirements to identify how their learning outcomes are relevant to the current job market.
