Evolving Role of the Learner in ePortfolios

March 18, 2011

Co-Sponsors: Rhode Island College and Johnson & Wales University

Location: JWU Culinary Arts Museum, Harborside Campus, Providence, RI

Conference Chair: Associate Provost James Griffin, Johnson & Wales University

Keynote speaker: Rhode Island College President Nancy Carriuolo -- Using IT to Support Teaching and Learning, or How a Skeptic became a Believer

At the first Northeast Conference at Stonehill College in May 2010, people were surprised by how inspiring the various campus stories were and how engaging our resulting conversations were. By the end of the conference reception, people wanted to continue their conversations. The conversations did indeed continue as many of the same people joined AAEEBL's Boston conference 2 months later, some institutions sending teams of 5 to work together on eportfolio innovation.

This year's Northeast Conference will feature an inspiring plenary talk by Rhode Island College President Nancy Carriuolo and more inspiring sessions given how much is happening in the northeast around electronic portfolios. Johnson & Wales has put together a stellar program for March 18 which will be a day of presentations, Q&A time and social time, a day for learning and for sharing. During the day, conference attendees will be treated to a special venue, because the conference is being held in the JWU Culinary Arts Museum.

Johnson & Wales University includes one of the world's finest culinary institutes, and conference attendees will be able to experience luncheon in the museum's diner exhibit and a vendor-sponsored reception in a handsome bar exhibit. From both a programmatic standpoint and an experiential standpoint, this conference will be valuable and enjoyable to anyone involved in eportfolio innovation on campuses.
