AAEEBL Annual Meeting – July 21-23, 2020

POSTPONED TO JULY 2021

Given the current state of affairs, we will be exploring new opportunities for AAEEBL events in 2020 so want to first provide an update on the status of our Annual Meeting, which was scheduled for July 21-23, 2020, at Salt Lake Community College. We are excited to report that we received an abundance of great proposals. However, we have decided to postpone our in-person event until July 2021 in order to protect our collective health and safety – our efforts work over the past year on Digital Ethics have reinforced for us the need to work together to make ethical decisions, not just about our use of digital technologies, but also in terms of the decisions we all make on a daily basis.

“Doing It Right: ePortfolios and Ethics, Practices, Technologies”

ePortfolios are now simultaneously the heart of a rich and growing academic literature and the latest addition to the list of high impact practices (HIP’s). With these developments in mind, the 2020 AAEEBL Conference explores what we mean by effective ePortfolio use, paying particular attention to digital ethics and ePortfolios, the design and use of other HIP’s in ePortfolio implementations, and the interrelationships between technologies, practices, and ethical considerations. Join us at Salt Lake Community College for what will be a thought-provoking meeting. To submit a proposal (due March 27, 2020), please click here

Keynotes include:

Dr. David Hubert, Associate Provost, Learning Advancement, Salt Lake Community College
Dr. Kathleen Blake Yancey, Kellogg W. Hunt Professor of English and Distinguished Research Professor at Florida State University

AAC&U/AAEEBL Summer Institute on ePortfolios for Authentic Student Learning and Success

This year’s conference will also be the site for the inaugural AAC&U/AAEEBL Summer Institute on ePortfolios for Authentic Student Learning and Success. This new format provides a year-long engagement opportunity for campus and/or state system teams seeking to actualize an ambitious strategy to broaden student engagement with ePortfolios. The new model directly engages with the ePortfolio Institute teams throughout an academic year via in-person and virtual interactions as participants’ implementation plans are put into practice. More information and instructions for applying to participate will be available in early 2020.
