Dr Mandia Mentis and Dr Wendy Holley-Boen work in the Institute of Education at Massey University in Aotearoa New Zealand. They have been using portfolios in their teaching for more than 20 years, appreciating the affordances that the pedagogy and technology have in terms of personalising the learning for their students and giving students the chance to bring in their authentic selves.

In this episode, Mandia and Wendy talk about the many benefits portfolios have for their learners and how they help their learners to make the most out of them.
