Context: The AAEEBL annual conference this year,
July 25-28, 2011, in Boston will herald a global transition from the
typically tentative, experimental deployment of portfolios to a new
committed portfolio deployment characterized by significant curricular re-design
within institutions of learning from primary school to graduate
school.This conference will also mark a fuller deployment of
portfolios in support of those already in the workforce.This
fuller acceptance of portfolios reflects deep changes in both how knowledge
is constructed in our society and in how graduates must direct their
careers actively as they move from job to job.Portfolios are
quickly becoming essential gear to succeed in the world of today.
Background: AAEEBL’s first world conference in July
2010 drew 370 people from the U.S., Canada, the U.K., the Netherlands, and
Australia.This year, July 25-28, 2011, also at the Seaport Hotel and
World Trade Center in Boston, we expect a larger attendance.We
have built in much more social interaction time at this coming conference
in response to requests from last July.
