Thanks for this; very clear and helpful. After 20 years as an educator I hold the view that it's very important to distinguish Body of Work from Portfolio, although the two overlap and cross-inform. A Body of Work is most useful when it is broadly representative of experience, effort, and reflection, and includes dead-ends, “failures”, changes of mind and heart. A Portfolio curates in ways that point to the future, that target what lies ahead by honing and focusing the already accomplished. A Portfolio is likely to change into barely recognizable alternate forms over a long period. A Body of Work always bears the clear traces of its origins and development.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
