LSI Part 3 Learning Portfolio

The Part 3 Learning Portfolio is a culminating project in the Lead.Serve.Inspire​ (LSI) curriculum and is designed to illustrate students’ development of core competencies. Reflective stories containing digital artifacts are intended to be the central feature of the portfolio.

Development of the Part 3 Learning Portfolio 

The Part 3 Learning Portfolio utilizes unique U.OSU.edu websites created specifically for each Part Three medical student.  U.OSU.edu is an easy-to-use professional WordPressTM platform available to members of The Ohio State University community. The Office of Distance Education and eLearning have created how-to videos and frequently asked questions on their website​.

Reflective Stories

Reflective stories are intended to convey a narrative of the student’s development in the LSI competency domains by referring to significant learning experiences and reflecting on the lessons learned or skills developed from those experiences. The stories should be about 3 to 5 minutes in length and​ may use any combination of textual, audio or video content in a digital format. Each story should address the student’s development in one of the competency domains and include relevant artifacts. Students should identify goals and plans for future professional development in the competency. An optional seventh story may be created under the Career Development category.

Artifacts can be collected at any time in the curriculum and stored in the learning portfolios used by all students in Parts One and Two of LSI. Examples of artifacts and associated competency​ domains can be reviewed here​. Students must remove any protected health information or other identifying information unless prior approval by the program and written consent in accordance with the institutional policy where the patient received care have been obtained. The relevant policies and forms can be accessed here​. Signed forms should be sent to the portfolio program coordinator​ for secure storage.

Assessment of the Part 3 Learning Portfolio​

Summative assessment of the Part 3 Learning Portfolio provides evidence of meeting the Practice-based & Lifelong Learning Competency of LSI.  The following areas are assessed: ability to create personalized stories relevant to LSI competencies; ability to display evidence of competency; ability to demonstrate personal reflection and insight on progress towards the competencies; ability to define goals and plans for further development of the competencies; and ability to demonstrate personal reflection and insight in oral communications.

Students meet in person with two portfolio coaches (not their primary coach) to present highlights of their portfolio and respond to questions about their portfolio and learning experiences. Grades for the project are assigned after the assessments are completed (Satisfactory or Unsatisfactory) with opportunity for the distinction of Honors or Letter of Commendation.
Part 3 Learning Portfolio Support

Questions regarding artifacts or other curricular items should be addressed to the student's portfolio coach.  Other administrative questions should be addressed to the program at ea@osumc.edu. Walk in technical assistance is available during normal business hours in Mobile Services, 038 Meiling Hall. Resources are available to students on Vitals​ Links, E-Portfolio tab.
