Posted on Sep 19, 2014 by Clint Balsar Last Activity on Sep 19, 2014

This professional development session plan is aimed at helping my participants create a PDF portfolio by using Adobe Acrobat Pro. I have used Adobe's FormsCentral to create both a Pre-event questionnaire form and an Event feed-back form. A handout has been included to allow participants to have key points, as well as a space for a few notes. By the conclusion of this workshop, all participants will be able to begin the process of creating a PDF portfolio from varied resources and understand the benefits of building them for both their course instruction and their own personal/professional artifacting. This will be an introduction that is intended to encourage further usage and exploration for the motivated, intrinsic adult learner. All participants will be encouraged to develop a unique backdrop and custom header to begin exploring the benefit of creativity to their portfolio.
