In 2008, LaGuardia Community College, led by Bret Eynon, held the first U. S. national conference on eportfolios. We started planning with the goal of bringing 200 people to the Conference. However, the turnout was over 500. Bret and his team did a remarkable job of promoting and handling logistics for this grand event.
Now, for the first time since 2008, another national open invitation eportfolio conference is being held in NYC. This time, however, we will need to limit attendees to around 120.
Since 2008, the eportfolio community has grown and evolved. We now know that the context within which an eportfolio initiative is planned is the important consideration: the learning design, the goals, the practices, AND the technology are all critical factors. This conference will reveal the sophistication of thinking now regarding eportfolios and education.
The Program Committee for Pace2017 will issue an RFP by October 31, 2016.
The Program Chair is Beth Gordon of Pace. Leading CUNY's efforts on behalf of this Conference are Bret Eynon of LaGuardia Community College, Laura Gambino of Guttman Community College CUNY and Joseph Ugoretz of Macaulay Honors College CUNY.
