Action Planning for ePortfolio Research:
Engaging in the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning

In multiple venues, from AAEEBL to AAC&U to IJeP, there are ongoing calls for greater empirical examination of eportfolio methods and practices. This hands-on, half-day workshop is designed to prepare participants for such engagement. The activities in this workshop will guide participants through the development and/or fine tuning of an educational research project associated with eportfolios. This session will explore various notions of the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning and will focus on every aspect of the educational research process, including:

  • Identification and development of research topics,
  • Crafting research questions,
  • Determining the types of data needed,
  • Choosing appropriate methods,
  • Determining appropriate analyses, and
  • Study execution and writing results.

Participants will engage in hands-on planning activities and individualized consulting and will leave this workshop with a clear direction regarding the steps they need to take to launch and complete their own educational research project. The session will conclude with a discussion of manuscript expectations for the International Journal of ePortfolio and proposal requirements for the 2014 AAC&U ePortfolio Forum. Ultimately, the goal of this session is to enable participants to contribute to both of these scholarly venues.

Following this session, participants may wish to then attend the two-hour, in-conference workshop entitled "Using Survey Instruments and Methods for ePortfolio Research" taught by the same presenter.
