Whether you’re a prospective student just starting at the iSchool, or gathering up your past course assignments and putting together your e-portfolio, the iSchool’s core competencies (also known as program learning outcomes) are going to keep appearing. You will need to know exactly what they are and be able to develop these competencies to prove you’re a professional worth hiring.
Students in all stages of their coursework need to keep track of what the competencies are and which assignments provide evidence for the e-portfolio. These 15 MLIS core competencies are essential components of your graduate school coursework.
As part of your e-portfolio, you will provide examples of your coursework for each competency (at least one example; two or three is preferred) as evidence of your qualifications as an information professional.
