Let’s hear from students
At conferences we often talk about the portfolios that students create or we conduct research with them as our participants. So why not hear from them directly? We want to give students a more prominent voice at the Annual Meeting 2021 to engage them in the conversations and workshops. There are three ways to achieve that:
- Free registration for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students to participate in all sessions
- Interviews with students prior to the conference to learn more about their portfolio practice
- Panel conversation with students at different levels of their education, reflecting on the conference theme of ‘Re-imaging the Future of Learning: ePortfolios, Identities, Equity, and Belonging’
In the days leading up to the Annual Meeting, we are publishing the student interviews to help us start thinking about our own portfolio practices, where we situate ourselves, what we enjoy and see can be changed. How do we view our own portfolios under the lens of equity, inclusion, and belonging? Do we showcase our true learner identity?
