Friendship Circle Corporate Support
Are you AAEEBL?
The Association for Authentic,
Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning offers companies an opportunity to
donate to AAEEBL in one of three circles of support. Through this
support Corporate Affiliates gain opportunities, earn recognition in the
eportfolio community, and help support AAEEBL’s mission of developing learners
and transforming institutions with electronic portfolios.
AAEEBL is the professional
association for the world eportfolio community with connections to
eportfolio initiatives globally. When you affiliate with AAEEBL, you
become part of a valuable relationship and also increase your visibility in
a targeted and self-selected eportfolio market.
As a Corporate Affiliate, your
generosity is given back to the eportfolio community in the form of
meaningful initiatives, events and valuable resources that help advance the
field of eportfolios for teaching and learning.
To discuss being a Corporate
Affiliate and its opportunities, contact Trent Batson (email@example.com).
