The Association for Authentic, Experiential, and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL), partnering with the Association of American Colleges & Universities (AAC&U), invites you to attend the 2018 Annual Meeting “Building Bridges with ePortfolios” at Capilano University in Vancouver, British Columbia from July 23-26, 2018. Registration is open.
Eportfolios have always been a tool of connection—a digital showcase that spans many divides. In 2018, we look forward to sessions that encourage attendees to explore the ways ePortfolios bridge our learning from one context to another:
- Linking K-12 education to post-secondary education
- Connecting post-secondary education to the workplace
- Uniting faculty instruction with faculty research
- Joining co-curricular activities to curricular activities
- Relating classroom assessment to institutional assessment
- Coupling faculty development with faculty practices
- Spanning across high impact practices
There are few communities in higher education as warm and welcoming as the ePortfolio community. If you would like to learn more about ePortfolios, the 11th high impact practice, and how they can transform learning, students, and faculty development on your campus, join us in Vancouver in July. Reserve your hotel room today. Conference rates expire March 31, 2018.
The At-A-Glance schedule is now available to help you plan your trip. In addition, the Special Interest Groups AAEEBL unveiled in 2017 will provide the themes of the conference:
