The Essential ePortfolio

AAEEBL, July 16, 2012

Facilitated by Wende Garrison

The July AAEEBL conference is one of the premier eportfolio community events! Every summer, eportfolio professionals from all over the world converge on Boston for four days of sharing tips, inspiring one another, and asking the big questions.

In 2012, AAEEBL attendees can register for a Monday afternoon session designed to provide a comprehensive overview of eportfolios. Great for campuses who want to get started with eportfolios, but also perfect for eportfolio professionals who want to go beyond the corner of eportfolios they have expertise with, expanding their knowledge to further eportfolios on their campuses.

This 1 pm to 4:30 pm workshop will cover the core eportfolio topics:
  • Making the Connection(Reflection/Integrative Thinking, Learning, Performing, Scaffolding, Pedagogy)
  • Closing the Loop(Assessment: Individualized Grading/Department, Program, and Institutional)
  • Choosing the Tool(Technology)
  • Building a Team(Training: For Faculty and Staff/For Students)
  • Putting Down Roots(Institutionalization/Buy-in)
Facilitated by Wende Garrison,The Essential Eportfoliowill also bring in experts in each of the five topic areas to answer questions and share resources with workshop attendees.
