Student and Portfolio Information Form (SPIF)


Section I. (Portfolio items – student reflection of K, S, A)
For this section of the Student and Portfolio Information Form (SPIF), you will need to enter the name and source of each item in your portfolio. First, type in the "title" or "label" that you have given for each item in your portfolio. For example, if you completed an essay as part of a course during a semester abroad program in London, you might have titled the essay "A Visit to Parliament." Second, type in the "source" and "date" for that item. For example, since the essay was completed during a London Semester Abroad Program in the fall of 2005, you would type in "London Semester Abroad Program, fall, 2005".
Then, for each of the items please think about whether it provides information, perspective, or content that demonstrates your international knowledge, skills or attitudes as defined below:

  • the knowledge that you have gained
    Specifically, how you have increased your knowledge of:

        • Your own culture in a global context

        • Nations and their neighbors

        • Global issues and processes

        • Other cultures

  • the skills that you have acquired
    Specifically, skills such as:

        • Critical thinking

        • Use of a second language for personal communication to gather information and to communicate with other cultures and/or in other language

  • how your attitudes have changed and/or been affected
    Specifically, attitudes toward:

        • Other language, art, religions, philosophies and popular culture

        • Cultural differences

        • Your culture in relation to other cultures

        • International or intercultural experiences

It is quite possible that an item will demonstrate all three of these areas (knowledge, skills, and attitudes); it is equally possible that this item may demonstrate one or two of these areas but not all three (e.g., attitudes and knowledge, but not skills). For each item, please check one, two, or all three of the boxes, depending on whether you think the item demonstrates your international knowledge, skills, and/or attitudes.
