Masters of Education Portfolio of John Inman

Learning Journey

"In a time of drastic change, it is the learners who will inherit the future. The learned find themselves equipped to only live in a world that no longer exists."  Eric Hoffer

This portfolio is a reflection of the work accomplished in this mastery program and is a testament  to Don and Ruth and the pioneering work they have done in bringing this program to us. Without them, I would not have pursued this degree and I am truly grateful.

The collection of work in this portfolio is assembled on my web site rather than in a traditional bound format. When I first started this program, I immediately made the decision that this was to be my chosen format for the portfolio. I have found my various web sites to be ideal for the collection and organization of not only my graduate school work, but the rest of the pieces of my busy life.

A major portion of our work in the masters program has been learning web development. During our first term, I took the mission of learning web design seriously and developed my home web site as part of my work. Please feel free to visit Wetherhaven which will open in a separate page so that you do not loose your place in the portfolio. I have invested a sizeable amount of time listening, learning, and improving the site and it is a major reflection of my work in the cohort as is this portfolio web site. Even though this is not one of the projects listed under addendums, it is one of my most important pieces of work and should be considered part of my portfolio. An example of my learning can be gleaned from this e-mail to Don after I had told him that I did not believe that learning HTML coding was necessary.

Subject: Don, just for the record :-)
I stand totally corrected on the need to go beyond a web publishing tool and go into HTML coding. On the project I just finished, even though I used FrontPage 2000, a very high end tool indeed, I spent at least half of my time coding in HTML. I had to go out and find other examples on the web, capture the code, analyze it and build and correct my code based on this intense analysis. Gads! So, when I said that I was not sure that one would need to know HTML, boy was I wrong!
I have some excellent techniques that I will be glad to share from a new comers point of view if you like.

This portfolio is organized into the seven sections specified in the program rubric. Navigation is clear and easy to follow from any one of the pages within the portfolio. All of the work represented is offered in PDF format so that regardless of the application in which the original work was created, you only need Acrobat Reader to open the file. 

If you would like to review other work not represented in this portfolio, all of my masters work is found on my Graduate page. Course descriptions are also offered to provide a clear context and flow of the program. 

It has been a long journey to this portfolio and the completion of my master work. And after almost three outstanding years, I believe I have gained mastery in the field and the foundation to continue my education and career in OD and training.

NOTE: This site offers most of our documents for download in Portable Document Format (PDF). PDF files are printer independent that can easily print a duplicate of the original publication using any graphics printer (i.e., laser, inkjet, dot-matrix or plotter).  To read and print a PDF publication, you must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader software installed on your PC.
