Session Description: For many higher ed teachers and students, remote teaching and learning is a new experience. Even some veterans of hybrid or online course formats struggle with how to switch to remote for specific scenarios. In this online event, the Association of Authentic, Experiential and Evidence-Based Learning (AAEEBL) will discuss how students can generate and show evidence of learning through ePortfolio approaches–even if you don’t use an ePortfolio tool. Based on some “lightning round” thought prompt presentations, participants co-constructed a collection of strategies that can be immediately piloted and implemented focusing on:

  • how to help students document and reflect on their learning in disciplines that are challenging to accomplish remotely, such as STEM, the arts, or hands-on skills courses
  • how to maintain learning equity in a world where some students and even some faculty do not have access to adequate devices, Internet, software or training for successful remote learning
  • how to create Universal Design for Learning pathways for students to create and demonstrate evidence of learning in remote settings
